Discover Cavendish

Soul food. Whispering red gums. Walkable.
Instagrammable. 

Culinary mastery, historical exploration, serene stays.  This is Cavendish, a village of the Grampians.

 

Affording you an exceptional dining experience, a walk through the time of settlers and a retreat from the hubbub of modern life, Cavendish is a destination that will fast become a family favourite.

Former head chef of an illustrious Sydney restaurant, James Campbell now heads up and delivers delectable dishes, all for your eating pleasure at the Bunyip Hotel.  This hospitable hotel perfectly utilises all the fresh and fabulous produce available to this ripe region and James expertly uses his culinary flare to turn it into a mouth-watering, ever-changing menu. Ask a local about the legend of the Bunyip whilst taking in the river views.

Wander under the eucalypt canopy, along the banks of the river and past historic buildings, plaques and memorials on Cavendish’s Settlers Walk.  A peaceful, picturesque and educational experience for the entire family.

Camping in Cavendish will have your finding your very own piece of tranquillity. Sit around the light of the camp fire, taking in the beauty that the warm glow gives to the trunks of the majestic red gums of the area, forgetting your to-do list and escaping the rigours of modern day life.

Retreat, relax and soak up the Cavendish experience.
