Yarra Valley

Ideally located only a short drive from Melbourne’s CBD

The Yarra Valley is Victoria’s oldest wine region

Due to the region’s cooler climate the Yarra Valley produces exceptional sparkling, chardonnay, pinot and cabernet sauvignon wine varietals. With a large array of producers offering incredible food and wine experiences, the Yarra Valley is perfect for travellers seeking outstanding dining and breath-taking scenery.

For early risers, take a morning hot air balloon flight above the region, soaking in the incredible scenery at sunrise. For lovers of wildlife and families, there is also the option to visit the Healesville Sanctuary , getting up close and personal to their unique collection of native Australian animals.

With copious walking trails in the Dandenong Ranges and hidden delights to be found all throughout the region, the Yarra Valley is a fantastic destination to include in your journey throughout Australia.

  • Include a visit to Healesville Sanctuary and discover the great variety of animal experiences on offer.
  • Watch the sun rise over the Dandenong Mountain ranges on an early morning hot-air balloon flight across the region.
  • Uncover the incredible selection of food and wine experiences to be found in the Yarra Valley.

Victoria typically experiences four distinct seasons however, some days can see all seasons occur on the one day.

In summer (December to February) the days are often warm with plenty of sunshine. The average temperature ranges between 14 – 25.3°C (57.2 – 77.5°F), and can often see temperatures reach beyond 30°C (86°F). Winter (June to August) temperatures often drop significantly, ranging between 6.5 – 14.2°C (43.7 – 57.6°F). Snow fall can even be seen in the state’s north-east.

In the autumn (March to May) and spring (September to November), daily temperatures sit between 19.6 – 20.3°C (49.3 – 68.5°F) and the days are typically very pleasant. The state also comes alive with colour due to the changing seasons.

What do our experts say about Yarra Valley?

"There are a hundred different ways to spend a day in the Yarra Valley. It's one of Australia's oldest wine regions and a great place for a dawn balloon flight. Go say g'day to Jerome at Dominique Portet... the family count a few of the head winemakers at Chateau Lafite in their ranks so it's fair to say they've some pedigree. Mix things up with a few gins at Four Pillars and some Yarra Valley Dairy cheeses (my favourite is the Le Jack) and you've got yourself a fine old day."
