Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley is easy to get to but impossible to leave thanks to its tantalising food and wine, secluded boutique accommodation, artisans and galleries, and stunning scenery.

Less than an hour's drive from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley's vine strung hills and rolling farmland are home to Victoria's earliest vineyards. Countless welcoming wineries, farmers markets, and boutique accommodation are set in picture-perfect vineyard or hilltop locations.

A sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Yarra Valley takes in the Healesville and Yarra Glen vineyards and the green valleys and pristine rivers around Marysville and Warburton. Back on earth numerous cellar doors beckon for laid back tastings and meals in their acclaimed restaurants, where fresh local produce and regional wines are on show.

There's also the opportunity to get up close to Australian wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary, home to dingoes, kangaroos, wombats and the elusive platypus.

Neighbouring Dandenong Ranges is a verdant realm of fern glades, towering trees and eclectic and artistic villages. Climb aboard Puffing Billy, Australia's much-loved historic steam train, for an alternative perspective of secluded bed and breakfast cottages, sun-kissed gardens and vast national parks.

Yarra Valley is approximately a 1 hour drive from Melbourne
