Tour Description

Take an unforgettable trip into Victoria’s wine country aboard Puffing Billy, a beautifully restored steam rain. This romantic, stylish trip will see you cruise through the stunning Dandenong Ranges and enjoy morning tea while getting close to local wildlife. You’ll then sample some of Australia’s best wines during personal tours of three iconic Yarra Valley vineyards, with the chance to make purchases at the cellar door.

• Take a trip aboard the famous Puffing Billy steam train
• Marvel at the stunning scenery as you travel into the heart of the Dandenong Ranges
• Enjoy morning tea surrounded by tranquil forest at Grant's on Sherbrooke reserve.
• Take the chance to hand feed local birds of paradise
• Sample top Australian wines at iconic vineyards, including Dominique Portet and Rochford

Australia’s new world wines are known for their bold flavours, innovative style and increasingly high quality. Victoria’s Yarra Valley is one of the nation’s leading wine regions with scores of world-class vintners and vineyards producing crisp whites and earthy reds.

The unique natural environment of Australia gives its wines a distinctive taste, feel and character. So what better way is there to sample the best of the best than to travel directly to the source with the Yarra Valley wineries tour?

Starting in Melbourne, you’ll be driven to the stunning Dandenong Ranges aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. The Dandenong Ranges are just 35km east of Melbourne and are home to towering peaks, rainforests, waterfalls and valleys.

We’ll stop in the heart of the ranges and board the famous Puffing Billy - a beautifully restored steam train - for a ride through the scenic Sherbrooke Forest.

We’ll then arrive at a popular rest stop called Grants on Sherbrooke, where you’ll be served a delicious Australian style morning tea and have the opportunity to hand feed local birds of paradise. You can also see cockatoos, kookaburras and crimson rosellas in the wild.

Now it’s time for the tour’s main event, a visit to the wine country of the Yarra Valley. Each stop will include a personal tour of the vineyard and tastings.

Our first stop will be at Rochford Winery, a vineyard that holds a five star rating from Australia’s top wine writer, James Halliday. This vineyard has breathtaking views of the Great Dividing Range and a stunning range of wines to sample.

We'll then travel over to the Dominique Portet Winery, which traces its history all the way back to 18th century Bordeaux - a true mix of old and new world wine making. With ten generations of family history in every bottle, Dominique Portet is perhaps best known for its Brut Rosé and award-winning 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our final stop will be at the rustic Yering Farm, which offers the chance to taste wines as well as a delicious range of ciders made from orchard-grown Pink Lady apples.

At the end of the day, you'll have experienced the perfect blend of natural beauty and exquisite wine - and you may even be tempted to bring a few bottles home!
