Enjoy a delicious, hearty spit roast lunch accompanied by a glass of wine at Fergusson's Winery. There is opportunity for a tasting at the cellar door after your lunch. For a taste of something sweet, visit the ever so popular and relatively new Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. Be amazed at their product range!

    Was a wonderful trip with lots of variety from excitement at puffing Billy, wonderful scenaries and breathtaking views enroute to Yarra Valley, excellent lunch, tasty chocolates and ice cream, finally experience wildlife very close. Another... differentiation was commentary of Jeff all along the bus tour - informational, very enthusiastic, great sense of humour. Read full review
