Our one-day Yarra Valley tour begins in Melbourne, where we’ll transfer you to the rolling hills of the Valley. We’ll start with a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-Creamery so you can grab a bite to eat and sample some mouth-watering sweet treats from the region.
We’ll head to the Watts River Brewery where you can try a craft beer and meet the passionate local brewers. The brewers at this family-owned beerhouse draw on local and international influences to produce high-quality, flavoursome beers for all to enjoy.
For lunch, enjoy free time in Healesville where you can dine any of the top cafes or restaurants in the town. Afterwards, spend some time exploring the town’s boutiques and stores, or pop into the Alchemy Distillery to sample their unique spirits.
But of course, we couldn’t visit the Yarra Valley without stopping at some of the wineries that have made the region famous. We’ll visit three boutique local wineries for tastings, where you can learn about the winemaking process as you sample the end product. Soak up the charming rural setting as you taste your way through the region’s sophisticated cool-climate chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot grigio and more. Be sure to pick up a few bottles to take home with you!
