Scenic attractions in the Yarra Valley

Float high above the Yarra Valley in a hot air balloon for unprecedented views of rolling hills strung with vines, lush greenery and pastures.

Changing views with the local drops
With boutique wineries around every bend in the valley you'll soon be attuned to its charms. Enjoy a meal accompanied by local wine amid the vines as you travel around.

See alternate views of the valley from both in and outside the curved Tarra Warra Museum of Modern Art, built to integrate into the landscape.

Picturesque picnic spots
Pick up some winery specials to enjoy with a gourmet picnic in the peaceful fern gullies and mountain ash at Badger Weir Park near Healesville.

Venture into the Christmas Hills and Sugarloaf Reservoir. Go bushwalking along the 18-kilometre trail, bird watching, sightseeing, sailing and shoreline fishing. Have a picnic at Ironbark Ridge or Saddle Dam overlooking the reservoir.
