HIKE AMONGST TOWERING TREES AND EXPERIENCE SOME OF YARRA VALLEY’S BEST WINERIES, BREWERIES & DISTILLERIES ON A PRIVATE DAY TOUR.
Take a hike in the stunning Dandenong Ranges and explore Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley, just a short 1-hour drive from Melbourne. Our private tours give you the freedom and flexibility to do it your way, or simply relax and let us lead the way with our carefully crafted itineraries.
We begin the day with an easy to moderate 6.6km hike in the Eastern Sherbrooke Forest through towering Mountain Ash trees and wetland ferns. Keep your eyes open for lyrebirds, wombats, wallabies, and echidnas that call the forest home.
Next, we head to the Californian Redwood forest for a short 1km stroll to marvel at these awe-inspiring giants; some trees stand up to 100m tall! This forest is one of the best-kept secrets of the Yarra Valley region.
Next up, we pull into one of Yarra Valley's favourite wineries, Innocent Bystander, for lunch with enough time for wine tasting if you choose. Fancy a long lunch? Just ask! This is your private tour and we’re happy to adjust the schedule to suit you.
After lunch, we skip over the road to visit craft beer brewery Matilda Bay, grab a paddle and enjoy a cold brew. Next, it’s off to visit the lads at Payten & Jones for good wine and great tunes.
We top the day off with a visit to Four Pillars, a small craft distillery (that's been named the world's leading gin producer two years in a row), before hitting the road back to Melbourne.
