Victoria, Australia
Cool Climate
Number of wineries
300+
Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz

The Yarra River has meandered its way through the hills of the wine region for many thousands of years and the unique landscape and terrain have created a vast array of growing sites for outstanding cool-climate wines. The Yarra Valley was Victoria's first planted wine region, beginning with a vineyard at Yering Station in 1838.

The wine region situated just 45 kilometres east of Melbourne’s CBD, the Yarra Valley is a large and diverse region. So diverse, it is hard to make any conclusive observations when you consider the range of influences which include both Mediterranean and continental climates, elevation from 50m – 1250m including the influence of the Great Dividing Range, and a number of soil types. All these influences in addition to the standard factors such as varying rainfall, temperatures, wind etc contribute to a dynamic and varied region that continues to challenge and excite. It is the geology of the Yarra Valley that primarily drives and dictates varietal plantings and their resulting expressions.

Experiences and attractions

Chocolate Factory in Yarra Valley

If you are venturing to the Yarra Valley with the family, the Chocolate Factory is a place that you should put on your must-see list. A treat for the senses, you will be overwhelmed with all of the delectable hand-made sweets for you to choose from.

Healesville Sanctuary

A nostalgic experience for some, Healesville Sanctuary is still one of the many reasons that tourists and locals take the time to visit. Animal lovers unite as you experience all that Australian wildlife has to offer. To make the experience even more memorable, we recommend booking a close encounter with the national treasure, the Koala.

Kokoda Track Memorial Walk

Most would be all too familiar with the Kokoda Track Memorial Walk and more infamously known as the “1000 steps”. Move at whatever pace you like while you enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We recommend visiting here on a weekday, as the weekend can get quite busy on a pleasant Spring or Summers day!
