Yarra Valley Wine Tours & Day Trips

Whether you’re staying  a couple days in Melbourne or a bona fide coffee barista, you would have heard the buzz about a sensational place call the Yarra Valley. This region is today Melbourne’s most favourite getaway destination and it’s located only an hour from the CBD. The Yarra Valley is renowned for producing delicate cool-climate style wines such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sparkling. Furthermore, its rich volcanic and alluvial soils makes it ideal for farming of quality fruits, vegetables and livestock. However, what really makes Yarra Valley absolutely mesmerising is its natural beauty – just imagine an amphitheatre of mountains overseeing a wave of rolling hills that etches towards flat plains underneath a big blue sky. So, if you’re looking for things to do in Melbourne, check out our top-rated tours departing to the Yarra Valley from the CBD.
