The Yarra Valley is a little further from Melbourne at around an hours drive from the CBD and between 30-45 minutes drive from the Dandenong's. The Yarra Valley is well known for it's world class wines, locally made produce, Healesville Sanctuary the chocolaterie and the new emerging and very popular craft beer breweries. In contrast to the forests and fern gullies of the Dandenong Ranges, the Yarra Valley treats us to lush pastures and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. It spans an enormous area and includes towns such as Healesville, Coldstream, Yarra Glen and Warburton. For a picturesque drive, head out through the Black Spur from Healesville to arrive in quaint Marysville. About 30 minutes of undulating roads with spectacular towering Mountain Ash and ferns.
