Yarra Valley Wines Are Among the Finest in Australia

Updated on January 15, 2013

If you're interested in indulging in some of life's great pleasures, such as fine wine, gourmet food, and idyllic landscape, you might want to look at the stunning area of Yarra Valley, which is home to a range of vineyards and wineries. The Yarra Valley, which can be found in the north-eastern district of Melbourne, is acknowledged as one of the finest wine-producing areas in Australia.

Boasting an amazing range of twenty-three perfectly cared for wineries, the Yarra Valley is freely open and available for tour parties to come and visit to test and sample the delightful produce available. Wine estates in the region greatly vary in size, from the small-scale operations in the area consisting of the Kellybrook Winery to the much large-scale operations, such as the Yering Station, Rochford Wines, and Balgownie Estate.

If planning on participating in one of the many Yarra Valley tours you have a chance to explore the area and visit a range of wineries with the option of tasting the different wines along the way. It is also possible to stop by many of the produce farms and pick and buy the choice of fresh fruits and produce available.

For a relaxing and high-quality eating experience, the price of a Yarra Valley tour is also likely to include visiting one of the delightful gourmet restaurants or eating establishments. Most of the dedicated bus tours traveling this delightful part of Melbourne are all-inclusive which means you will have everything you need for a truly relaxing time, from the time you are picked up in the mornings until you arrive back home at the end of the day.

Other attractions in the local area include the Healesville Sanctuary which is situated in the foothills of the valley, and like the wineries is just a single hour's drive from central Melbourne. For the animal lover, this park is home to many local species, which consists of such wildlife as the platypus, goannuas, emus, wombats, wallabies, and kangaroos. Similar to the wineries and local restaurants, this wildlife reserve is also perfect to stop off and enjoy a meal or picnic.

A further place to visit in the local area includes the Galeena Beek Living Cultural Centre, which is just by the wildlife sanctuary, and offers a perfect destination for anyone that is interested in learning more about the life and cultural heritage of the aboriginal people in the local region.
