Grampians Scenic Drive

A continuous view of the Southern Grampians can be enjoyed as you experience the Southern Grampians of the Great Dividing Range. From Hamilton take the Glenelg Highway to Dunkeld. Home to art galleries, gardens, wineries, local produce and for the more adventurous the option of bushwalking time spent in Dunkeld is worthwhile.
Enjoy the views of the Southern Grampians as you follow the C217, Grampians Tourist Road from Dunkeld through to the Mirranatwa Gap lookout. This viewing point overlooking the Southern Grampians ranges captures stunning vista of the pastoral heritage of the area.
Travelling further west to Cavendish enjoy time walking on the Settlers walk on the banks of the Wannon River, before returning home to Hamilton.
Driving Time - Return 1.5 Hours, 102km.

Hamilton Art Gallery

Hamilton Gallery’s collection is celebrated for its exceptional breadth and quality. The decorative arts collection, and eighteenth century works on paper, such as watercolour landscapes by Paul Sandby (1731-1809), make Hamilton Gallery a leading regional gallery in Australia.
The collection includes works by major European and Australian artists. Contemporary Australian paintings form an impressive area of display. Our glass collection spans all major European glass producing traditions, with a particularly strong representation of Scandinavian glass. The Asian art collection which began with the Herbert and May Shaw Bequest (1957) now rivals some State Gallery collections. In Chinese ceramics each of the major dynasties are represented, and contemporary Japanese ceramics are a collection highlight. Our European porcelain, stoneware and earthenware show the major stylistic and technical developments from the sixteenth century to today. It is now sixty years since the core collection was bequeathed to the people of Hamilton.

Hamilton Botanic Gardens

The site for the gardens was set aside in 1853 and first planted out in 1870, making the gardens amongst the earliest provincial botanic gardens set aside in Australia.
From 1881 the Council at the time employed William Guilfoyle, curator of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, to draw up plans and design the layout of the gardens. His design approach was to introduce sweeping lawns, curved paths, lakes and islands, rockeries with cacti and succulents, colourful plants and contrasting foliage into the Hamilton Botanic Gardens. Guilfoyle’s first list of sketch plans and suggested plantings, now more than 100 years old, are held in the Hamilton Art Gallery. His creative ability has created a unique landscape style and his gardens today are considered a vital part of Victoria’s heritage.
Set in four hectares, the Gardens as a complete entity were classified by the National Trust of Victoria in 1990 and contain eight tree species listed in the Register of Significant Trees. The Gardens have areas of scientific interest, fountains, decorative fences and gates, animal and bird enclosures and are built in a manner of merging surrounding streetscapes to give pleasing vistas both inwards and outwards.
