  • Melbourne: Full-Day Horses, Wine, and Beer Tour

    1. Melbourne: Full-Day Horses, Wine, and Beer Tour

    This culinary tour of Melbourne takes you to the Living Legends racehorse retirement village at Woodlands Historic Park, home to many favorite retired champion race horses. Meet the horses, watch the kangaroos in their natural environment, and enjoy morning tea. The tour continues on to the Gisborne Peak Estate, where you can enjoy some wine tasting as well as a gourmet wood-fired pizza for lunch. The estate is located within the Macedon Ranges wine region, a recognized cool-climate wine growing region. The final stop of the tour is at Holgate Brewery, a traditional country pub and home of the 2008 Best Beer Brewed in Victoria Trophy. Enjoy tasting the beers at the pub, full in flavor and rich in character, and relax in the beautiful beer garden.

    It was wonderful to go to Woodlands and see all those famous horses. It is a lovely homestead and everyone made us feel very welcome, and the horses seemed pleased to see their adoring fans once more. Our Pizza and winery stop was enjoyed by all as was the Pub/Brewery tour.

  • Melbourne: 1-Day Mountain Biking Adventure with Lunch

    2. Melbourne: 1-Day Mountain Biking Adventure with Lunch

    Escape the busy city of Melbourne and head north to Woodend and the handmade trails of the Wombat State Forest. Weave through the trees and breathe in the crisp countryside air as you ride along this well-established, 17 km trail. Follow your guides along the circuit, embarking on a few exciting challenges along the way that will put your biking skills to the test. Once you’ve built up an appetite, head to Holgate’s Brewhouse for lunch. Home to an incredible beer range that is all brewed on-site, the brewery is the perfect location to relax after a hectic morning of biking and refuel for an afternoon of fun. Take it easy on the beer though, as the best riding is yet to come! After lunch, bike the 35-minute journey along the Calder Highway to the township of Harcourt, just outside the gold mining town of Bendigo. Spend a few hours biking along the 34 km of green, blue, and black trails,...
