Booked lunch out on the deck for my 30th birthday with 30+ people. Beautiful views, delicious & well priced wines, great atmosphere and delicious pizzas. Kylie had arranged a big welcome sign and gave me a bottle champagne for my birthday. We all felt extremely looked after and will definitely come back!

Had a fabulous day driving through the Yarra valley with friends. It is quite close to the CBD. Chandon winery is a must visit, with the best scenery. Grab some cheese at the Yarra valley dairy and wash it down with some great wine from the many wineries around. Lots of locally grown produce. The foliage colours during autumn were... More

The Yarra Valley is just a couple of hours from Melbourne by land, and it is worth the trip. We were able to visit a number of vineyards, a strawberry farm, and a chocolate factory. The views were superb, and we were blessed with nice weather during our visit. It is perfect for those who are looking to relax and... More

I’ve been to about 50 countries and six continents. I’ve also traveled each of the six states, and two territories that make up my home country, Australia. I’ve even been through more states of the USA than most USA residents. But I’ve only recently realised I’ve barely scratched the surface of the playground at my doorstep. I live in the... More

Better than Hunter n Barossa valley, Yarra valley is indeed very pretty n beautiful. Amazing n stunning views. Has some of the best vineyards but the only catch is everything closes down by 5:00 Pm.

It was a really great day. At first I thought it would drag since it was 9-5 however the day went amazingly quick.We took the full day Puffing Billy/Yarra Valley Healesville Sanctuary trip. The coach was clean and comfortable, and the driver was well informed and interesting.

A very scenic and beautiful drive in the Wine region of Victoria. Filled with wineries and amazing restaurants, this place is only an hour away from Melbourne CBD. Ideal place for hot air ballooning.
