Yarra Valley Wineries and Puffing Billy Steam Train Tour from Melbourne

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Escape to the country with this delightful day-long tour from Melbourne. After morning pickup at Federation Square or your Melbourne hotel, relax in a comfortable air-conditioned coach as the urban bustle gives way to unspoiled greenery (see Hotel Pickup tab and Itinerary for more details).
    After a 25-mile (40-km) drive to the Dandenong Ranges, stop at Grants Reserve mountain café to observe some of the native bird species, including cockatoos and crimson rosellas. 
    At the neighboring outpost of Belgrave, climb aboard the well-preserved Puffing Billy steam train — one of the oldest steam trains in Australia. Enjoy fresh mountain air as you chug along through the lovely Sherbrooke Forest toward Menzies Creek.
    After your ride, hop back on the coach for a scenic drive to the Yarra Valley — Victoria’s beloved wine region. Stop at Rochford Winery where you can enjoy an optional 2-course lunch with a wine pairing or purchase a meal at the onsite cafe. Visit two other charming wineries for cellar-door tastings of the Yarra Valley’s cool-climate varietals, including chardonnay, pinot gris, pinot noir, and shiraz. 
    Your tour will conclude with the return drive to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off at your original departure point.

    The train ride was good fun, and was the english tea shop stop, and seeing all the birds. From here there was a Yarra Valley winery tour with a nice selection of wines, and a good explanation about the grapes and process.

    Truly a very memorable experience. On such tours, the driver-cum-coach can make or mar the trip and we were lucky to get a good driver-cum-guide. The bus drive was smooth and pleasant. The steam train ride was a very pleasant one, passing through wooded country...More
