Dunlop was born in Wangaratta, Victoria, the second of two children of parents James and Alice.
He attended Benalla High School for two years of his education. He started an apprenticeship in pharmacy when he finished school, and moved to Melbourne in 1927. There, he studied at the Victorian College of Pharmacy and then the University of Melbourne, where he obtained a scholarship in medicine.
Dunlop graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1934 with first class honours in pharmacy and in medicine, and excelled as a sportsman at Melbourne University and Ormond College.
The nickname "Weary" was a reference to his last name—"tired" like a Dunlop tyre.
