Yarra Valley Attractions

Close to Melbourne, the Yarra Valley makes a great day trip from the city, or an exciting destination in its own right.

Top Attractions

The top attraction in the Yarra Valley is wine. The Yarra Valley was the birthplace of Victorian wine, and today quality wines are produced by vineyards such as Domaine Chandon or Four Pillars Distillery. The area is best known for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sparkling wines.

Kids & Family

What about a trip on the The Yarra Valley Tourist Railway.  A highlight of a visit to the Yarra Valley for kids of all ages, the Tourist Train offers a different perspective to the landscape. Hedgend Maze offers a variety of interactive pursuits that the whole family will enjoy. All this plus being surrounded by magnificent views of the Valley.

Day Trips

Explore the Dandenong Ranges National Park perhaps on the Puffing Billy train. Drive deeper into Victoria, to Lakes Entrance or Wilsons Promontory National Park. Or visit the pioneer working farm Gulf Station, to sample a life from times before electricity, machinery or tractors.

Local Tip

For a day trip with a dose of serendipity, visit the William Ricketts Sanctuary. Not only are the trails through the bushland peaceful, serene and soothing, but the delight of finding an unusual sculpture amongst the trees adds a little extra to the day!
