East of Melbourne, just one hour away lies the Yarra Valley, the beautiful area where many of Australia’s famous wines come from. The Yarra River flows gently towards Hobsons Bay, winding its way through the fertile land that is home to some of Australia’s wonderful wildlife. The intriguing platypus is just one of the animals that lives here.
The valley is an epicurean paradise; in addition to outstanding chardonnays and pinot noirs, the region also produces various other delicacies. Visit the lively farmers’ markets where stalls are stacked with fresh fruit, fine chocolates and spicy cheeses. But the region’s natural beauty and the many activities are also a major attraction. Your senses will work overtime in Victoria’s loveliest valley.
