Drive north east of Melbourne for an hour and you'll notice the scenery take on a dramatic change. Gone at the high-rise buildings and the busy streets and in their place are near-empty stretches of country road, sparse buildings and seemingly endless rows of vineyards that beckon you to explore, relax and unwind.
This is the Yarra Valley, a region renowned for its award-winning wineries, fresh local produce, well-being facilities and country atmosphere.
Whether you're searching for a romantic getaway, adventure-filled weekend or family holiday, the Yarra Valley and country Victoria has boundless activities to enthrall and excite. Drive up from Melbourne or take a day tour from the big city. Whichever way you decide, just remember to leave your big city worries behind.
