Dunkeld, a rural town in western Victoria, is on the Glenelg Highway at the southern end of the Grampians range. It is 30 km north-east of Hamilton.

Overlooking the town there is Mount Sturgeon and, further north, Mount Abrupt. Both were named by the New South Wales Surveyor-General, Thomas Mitchell, when returning from his Australia Felix expedition in 1836. The Dunkeld settlement was known as Mount Sturgeon until 1854, when it was named Dunkeld.
