HIKE AMONGST TOWERING TREES, AND HOP BETWEEN SOME OF THE YARRA VALLEY’S BEST WINERIES AND BREWERIES ON THIS SMALL GROUP DAY TOUR.
Join our small group (max 8 guests) for an adventure to the Dandenong Ranges and Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley, just a short 1-hour drive from Melbourne.
We embark on a moderate 6.6km hike in the Eastern Sherbrooke Forest through towering Mountain Ash trees and wetland ferns. This hike will get the heart rate going and build an appetite for an afternoon of indulging. Keep your eyes open for lyrebirds, wombats, wallabies, and echidnas that call the forest home.
Next up, we pull into one of Yarra Valley’s favourite wineries, Yarrawood Estate for lunch. There's plenty of time for wine tasting too if you choose. After lunch, we skip over the road to visit craft beer brewery Matilda Bay, before jumping back in the van to visit the lads at Payten & Jones for more good wine and great tunes.
We top the day off with a visit to Four Pillars, a small craft gin distillery (that's been named the world's leading gin producer two years in a row), before hitting the road and returning to Melbourne.
Tastings at Yarrawood Estate and Four Pillars are included.
