Mereweather Estate Cottage at Dunkeld, is a part of the Southern Grampians, Victoria, Australia offering a unique country experience.

Our cottage is located on the brow of the hill over looking Mount Sturgeon. It has the most amazing views, where you can look straight up Mt Sturgeon, across to Piccaninny and then Mt Abrupt, with the Wannon River weaving around the river red gums at the base of the mountain, all this only 200 meters from the cottage.

A feature of our cottage is being able to observe all the wildlife that abounds around the cottage, kangaroos, emus, and lots of bird life can be seen from either the deck in front of the cottage or in the warm comfort of the wood heater inside while looking out the full length floor to ceiling windows of both the living area and main bedroom.

You can watch the sun set to the West while the kangaroos and birds come to drink at the waterholes in the river. All this peace and quiet, but with good cafes and coffee only a 10 minute walk away in the main street of Dunkeld, which also offers the fine dining of the Royal Mail Hotel.

Share a little of Dunkeld’s history, the 10 hectares around the cottage have been in the Mereweather family for more than 150 years. You can walk around the brow of the hill, sit on the rocks and watch nature at its best. This is a great place for the artist or photographer.The cottage has a Queen bed in the main bedroom and two singles in the second bedroom, all linen and furniture is good quality.

We do have a no smoking policy within the cottage.

There is plenty of room for children to ride bikes and play ball games around the cottage, a well behaved small dog is welcome, but must not be left unattended as there are sheep in the paddock.

We are well situated as a base for exploring the Grampians National Park, visiting local Waterfalls, or a trip to the Coast only an hour away. There are plenty of great walking trails, both in Dunkeld and in the mountains.

We can also offer you Breakfast baskets, please ask us for details.

Your hosts are Bill and Heather Funk and our son Robert

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful views We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mereweather. While the weather wasn't particularly accommodating on the weekend we stayed, it didn't really bother us as we were quite happy sitting around the fire and enjoying the views of the mountain and kangaroos. The cottage is well-stocked and very comfortable, and being dog-friendly is a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to take the family The view is a show stopper! Heather has thought of everything, the cottage is cosy, clean and comfortable, wildlife everywhere, and loads of space for the kids to roam. We loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property-a gem in Dunkeld A spectacular place to stay with one of the best views in the region! Clean, warm and practical. Welcoming home. We recommend it for a couple or larger group and being dog friendly is an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The views were stunning We were not disappointed to find the views even better than we expected. The cottage was very comfortable and have everything we needed for a 3 day stay. The kitchen was really well equipped and it was lovely to be able to try some produce from the owner's garden. The bed was really comfortable and it was lovely to sit up in bed and look up at Mt Sturgeon and observe the different birds landing on the pepper tree to feast on the seeds. The shower in the bathroom had really good pressure and the bathroom was well set up. It was only a short walk (10 minutes into town or closer to Dunkeld Delights) to have a coffee. We had lunch one day at the Royal Mail in the Parker Street Project which is really the bar section of the pub. We had lamb shoulder and it was fantastic. Heather was a lovely host and very helpful. We had our 2 elderly dogs with us and the only issue was there are no enclosed areas around the cottage to just let them out for a wee and potter.
