Overview



Wine, food, and koalas. What more do you need?

Experience the Yarra Valley wine region for an indulgent day out of the city.

When it comes to day trips from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is the gold standard and it all starts with its world-famous wineries. Just a short drive from Melbourne, it's easy to understand why visitors frequent this area with its picturesque backdrop of the Yarra Ranges and renowned wineries and restaurants around every bend. Good food, better wine, and beautiful landscapes are a few of the things that make life worthwhile, so, unless you enjoy being unhappy, it would be a good idea to explore one of Australia's best destinations.

With a private guide and vehicle, you will avoid the crowds and head to some of the tastiest wineries in the entire valley. Start your day with an exclusive, privately hosted behind-the-scenes barrel room tasting, accompanied by locally-grown produce at the Dominique Portet vineyard. This family has been making wine for 10 generations and is a household name within Victorian wine circles. Often it's the people behind the wines that make the tastings so enjoyable and these guys couldn't be more passionate about what they do. This inside look sets the perfect tone as you venture out to other boutique wineries for additional tastings throughout the valley, tailored to your preferences.

A stop will also be made at a beautiful vineyard restaurant for a 2-course lunch that is good enough to make you wonder why wine overshadows the area's culinary achievements.

It wouldn't be a journey to Australia without getting up-close-and-personal with some of its famous animals. Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary is a not-for-profit organization that has education programs and an on-site recovery facility for threatened species. Take advantage of the chance to feed some kangaroos and learn about the defense mechanisms of wombats. A photo opportunity with a koala will be hard to pass up and we give you permission to be as shameless as possible when demonstrating your excitement.
