Full description
Journey east of Melbourne through the beautiful low mountain range on this Puffing Billy Yarra Valley Wine Tour, where ferns grow wild and trees tower over a colonial train track hidden in the rolling hills and steep valley forest. This region is home to the famous Puffing Billy Railway, numerous arts and craft stores, and café’s offering delicious homemade products. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a spectacular Yarra Valley backdrop whilst sipping premium locally grown wines. Such as the well-known Dominique Portet and Rochford Wines

Step back in time for a ride on Australia’s oldest steam train, Puffing Billy. This journey will take you through the breathtaking Sherbrooke Forest & Dandenong Ranges, surround by lush rainforest, fern gullies, giant Mountain Ash trees and hidden railway tracks of the hills. Childhood dreams are relived, as you dangle your arms and legs out of custom designed open colonial train carriages as you make your way through the mountains. Enjoy a traditional Devonshire tea with homemade scones, served warm with jam and cream whilst you listen to the colorful sounds of lyrebirds, crimson rosellas, cockatoos and kookaburra. This area is also home to many other native Australian wildlife, so be sure to keep your camera ready.

Spend a relaxing afternoon exploring the heart of Victoria’s premium boutique wine region, the Yarra Valley. You will have plenty of time to soak up the spectacular views and try some famous cabernet, chardonnay, Semillon and pinot.
