The Yarra Valley
Besides being the place where Victorian wine started, we have an array of diverse villages tucked into breath taking scenery. Travel through the rolling hills strung with vines, secluded natural valleys set against blue mountain backdrops and lush greenery and pastures, past towering trees and pristine rivers. Stop along the way and sample the wines and linger over a meal as you discover the regional passion for food, with fresh local produce matched to the regions wines. Dine in style at some of the best eateries or simply at hidden cafes and at both marvel at the profundity of fresh local produce. Then visit the Healesville Sanctuary wildlife park, home to native Australian birds and animals like platypus, koalas, Tasmanian devils, lyrebirds, echidnas and more.
For a fresh and exciting view of the entire valley, take to the dawn skies in a hot-air balloon before descending into a vineyard to enjoy a breakfast of sparkling wine and just-picked produce.
Art lovers can see how artists perceive the surrounds at TarraWarra Museum of Art or at small artist studios dotted around the region.
