The Yarra Valley is a charming countryside region about 25 km from the city of Melbourne. The area is famous for its local food produce and some of Victoria’s most celebrated wineries. Surrounded by forests and waterfalls, the Yarra Valley is a great destination for nature lovers to explore, and even see native wildlife. A popular activity in the region that’s a must-visit is Healesville Sanctuary, a bushland haven for Australian wildlife. Feeling romantic? Why not take a sunrise hot air balloon flight for a spectacular view of the region.


When planning a visit to the Yarra Valley, make sure to stop by one of the world’s best Miniature Railways, Diamond Valley Railway – 2 km long ride through Eltham Lower Park. Alternatively, the Kangaroo Ground War Memorial Tower is a top attraction among history enthusiasts.
