Just an hour’s drive northeast of Melbourne, Victoria’s wine region is fantastic as a day trip but is even better as a destination in its own right. Here you’ll find some of the country’s finest cellar doors, amazing eateries, spectacular views and plenty of adventure.
Surrounding the Yarra River, the valley is known for producing some of Australia’s best wine. This is Victoria’s oldest wine region, renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. But there’s more to life here than simply wine; discover artisan breweries, gourmet chocolatiers and sumptuous ice creameries. Fresh produce ranges from decadent caviar and fine cheeses to local cherries and freshwater salmon.
To get up close to some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife in its natural environment, pay a visit to Healesville Sanctuary; koalas, dingoes, kangaroos, wallabies, platypuses and more call this place home. Great views are to be had at Dandenong Ranges National Park, while nearby Marysville is home to sparkling waterfalls.
To get the best views of this scenic location, Inspiring Travel Company recommends a hot air balloon flight over the vineyards and the Yarra River.
