The Best Winery Tours You Can Book In The Yarra Valley

It doesn’t matter what season it is, a winery (or food, or beer, or gin) tour in the Yarra Valley is always an excellent idea. The Yarra Valley is filled with picturesque wineries that pour some top drops, and usually serve some delicious food on the site. The wineries sit among rolling hills that are also filled with farms that often have farm gates selling fresh produce, dairy goods, and more.

The tours themselves range from private wine tours, to bus tours that anyone can book a spot on and tour the sights of the Yarra Valley.

The towns dotted around the Yarra Valley are also amazing to visit if you’re looking for places to visit on a tour with friends. Over the past decade, towns in the Yarra Valley—Healesville, Yarra Glen et al—have seen breweries, distilleries, and amazing restaurants pop up and stay for good. The Valley has always been a tourist attraction in Victoria, but over this period it has gone to new heights given its accessibility from Melbourne.
