All aboard the Puffing Billy Steam Train! Take in the crisp mountain air and stunning views of the Dandenong Ranges. Head to the heart of Victoria’s wine region, the Yarra Valley and taste premier wines and gourmet food.

This morning you are going to enjoy some good old fashioned fun and the most beautiful rainforest in Victoria. You’ll then be spoiled with some great Aussie food and glass of wine for lunch and go on to taste wines from some of Victoria’s leading wineries. We’ll get your day started with a journey through Melbourne’s eastern suburbs and views of the Dandenong Ranges in the distance.

The Dandenong Ranges, also known as the Dandenongs, are beautiful mountain ranges just 35kms east of Melbourne. At their peak, they rise to more than 630 metres and are wrapped in lush rainforests of Mountain Ash trees (the tallest flowering plant in the world), waterfalls, rolling hills and steep valleys. The region is home to numerous arts & craft stores and cafés.

Right in the heart of the Dandenongs is Grant’s Reserve – a gorgeous spot to take a break. You’ll be greeted by the surrounding mountain hue and crisp clear air. While here you’ll enjoy a traditional Aussie billy tea with vegemite, crackers & lamingtons.

The Dandenongs is a haven for bird life and while at Grant’s Reserve you can handfeed some of the most striking Australian birds such as the colourful Crimson Rosella, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and Pink-chested Galah. You’ll also be entertained by the wonderful bird song that fills the valley.

Next you head to Belgrave, home of the famous Puffing Billy Steam Train, where you are in for some fun! This century-old steam train is maintained in its original glory and runs to this day on its own mountain track from Belgrave to Menzies Creek. Here you’ll go back in time as you get on board for a 30 minute ride through the heart of the rainforest. You’ll head through the gorgeous Sherbrooke Forest and ride over the old Trestle Bridge. Just before Menzies Creek you can see stunning views of Port Phillip Bay. 

The scenery en route to the Yarra Valley is just spectacular with the Great Dividing Range as the backdrop. When you arrive in Victoria’s premium wine growing region, you’ll visit Rochford Winery and another two leading wineries for wine tasting, appreciation and education. Of the many wineries in the area, you may visit estates such as Dominique Portet. Each has earned an international reputation for excellence and offer cellar-door tastings of their award-winning selections of Australian wine.
