Worth the short walk to this lovely pond and arboretum plus native wildflower meadow. If you enjoy native flora and fauna you will enjoy this. Nice easy walk.

It was very cold for spring! But the 4 ducklings and their protective and proud parents made us feel good! And helped us make room for a cooked breakfast on holidays!!

We have visited Dunkeld numerous times while staying in Halls Gap. It is worth the drive across, we think. The Arboretum is always a place we go if time permits, as we enjoy the walk around the lakes. With views to Mt Abrupt and Mt...More

Walked down from Royal Mail Hotel. The community is putting a lot of effort into making this a focus and attraction in the town. The sawmill is on the circular route around the small lake. Lots of kangaroos and bird life. New trees being planted....More
