Yarra Valley Tour

Our route to the Yarra Valley takes us through the beautiful rural countryside of Warrandyte, the Diamond Valley and Kangaroo Ground, whilst hugging the Yarra River on the journey out of Melbourne.

As one of Australia’s leading wine making regions, the short drive (approximately one hour) makes it an ideal destination for a day trip.

With a picturesque backdrop of the Yarra Ranges as well as renowned restaurants throughout the area, wine and food lovers alike will revel in everything the Yarra Valley has to offer.

Meet local characters and sample wine from boutique wineries avoiding the potential crowds of the larger wineries  –  we will fully tailor your tour to your tastes.

Whilst in the area, you may choose to visit the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary. Regarded as one of Australia’s leading wildlife reserves, the Healesville Sanctuary has over 200 species of Australian birds and animals in pristine ‘Aussie’ bush land.

  • A memorable 2 course lunch of the very finest regional produce, with matching estate wine
