Yarra Valley


In Victoria’s first wine region, classic winemaking sits alongside creative new techniques. Over 100 wineries share these fertile green hills with cheesemakers, pastry chefs and restaurants serving locally sourced menus. The cool-climate region is famous for its Chardonnay and these citrusy stone fruit flavours will turn absolutely anyone into a fan of this crisp white. Once you’ve had your fill of cellar doors and fine dining, head to Healesville Sanctuary to meet Australian animals, take a hot air balloon ride over the vines, discover walking trails or visit the surrounding orchards and farms to pick your own fruit salad of peaches, cherries and strawberries. The Wurundjeri people are the traditional custodians of this land.
