Tour Description

Enjoy a day out exploring the stunning Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges via the historic Puffing Billy (steam train). Visit wineries and indulging in a traditional Bush Billy tea and a delicious lunch. This day of relaxation and exploration has it all!

• See the beautiful Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, including a stop at the pristine Sherbrooke Forest.
• Ride the Puffing Billy steam locomotive for an historical adventure through the surrounding rainforest.
• Indulge your senses at three separate wineries, tasting their wares and touring their facilities
• Melt at the taste of premium chocolates at a local chocolaterie & ice creamery

Among Victoria’s most stunning attractions, the Yarra Valley and Blue Dandenongs are among the best. After an early pick-up (approx. 8:10am) from Federation Square East (corner of Flinders & Russell Streets) or your Melbourne accommodation (on request), you’ll pass Melbourne’s interesting Eastern Suburbs on your way out to the lush Sherbrooke Forest. Resplendent with towering Mountain Ash groves, tall eucalypts and fern gullies, you’ll spot a variety of wildlife, such as bellbirds, lyrebirds and kookaburras in this magnificent location known as the heart of the Dandenongs.

You’ll be treated to a delightful traditional Bush Billy Tea (Aussie grown tea with a hint of gum leaves), accompanied by lamingtons and crackers with Vegemite. After morning tea, you’ll have the opportunity to hand-feed some bright Crimson Rosellas and Kings Parrots, before boarding the Puffing Billy steam train. This historical steam locomotive will slowly wind you through gorgeous forest scenery, allowing you to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a trip from a bygone era.

After your Puffing Billy experience, you’ll visit Fergusson’s winery – one of Yarra Valley’s reputed wine producers – to sample some of Australia’s finest drops. While here, you’ll indulge in a delicious spit roast lunch (vegetarian options available) before embarking on a tour through the picturesque Yarra Valley. You’ll satisfy your sweet tooth with a visit to Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery, where you’ll delight in the tastes of premium chocolate samples and watch the chocolatiers at work.

After passing through the quaint township of Healesville, you’ll stop at Rochford Wines for another delicious wine tasting. This gorgeous winery is renowned for its premium Aussie wines and hosting concerts. Next, a visit to Dominique Portet will complete your day and their delicious wines, cheese and crackers will keep the smile on your face.
