With rolling hills, mystical fern gullies and a fascinating array of native wildlife, Yarra Valley and the Dandenongs are a world-class destination for wine-lovers and nature-lovers alike. Feed colourful birds in the rainforest, ride a historic train, and relax over tastings at local wineries.

Immerse yourself in the serene surroundings of the ancient rainforest at Grants Reserve in the Dandenongs. Breathe in the crisp mountain air as you enjoy typical Aussie Billy Tea, chocolatey Lamingtons and Vegemite and crackers. Experience the thrill of feeding vibrant native birds by hand – bright crimson rosellas, noble sulphur-crested cockatoos and rosy pink-chested galahs all fill this forest with their lilting birdsong.

Continue to Belgrave and climb aboard the century-old Puffing Billy. This restored steam train chugs along its original mountain track to Menzies Creek on a picturesque, 30-minute route through the mountain ash and towering eucalyptus of Sherbrooke Forest. Dangle your legs out of the open windows as you ride over the Monbulk Creek Trestle Bridge and spot Port Phillip Bay in the distance.

In the afternoon, join a series of guided wine tastings in the renowned Yarra Valley. Sip earthy Pinot Noir at Rochford, and visit another two leading wineries for wine tasting, appreciation and education. Of the many wineries in the area, you may visit estates such as Dominique Portet. Experience cellar-door tastings of their award-winning selections of Australian wine.

This tour is very good but for the Wineries visit at lunch time. When you have your lunch before you can taste the wines so it is impossible to know what wine to have with lunch as you have not tasted the wines on offer!!!!
