Taste Yarra Glen's long history of gourmet indulgence as you pick up locally grown produce from farmers markets and sample wines at pioneering cellar doors.
A history of fine foods
Go straight to the heart of the pioneering agricultural and dairy farming history of Yarra Glen at Gulf Station, a working farm dating from the mid-nineteenth century. Wander the property alongside cattle, horses, Berkshire pigs, and sheep.
Fill your larder directly from specialist growers and producers at farm gates, winery cellar doors and at the monthly Yarra Valley Regional Farmers Market at Yering Station.
Big name places to eat and drink
Stop at local eateries to sample regional produce on a plate, go retro at the National Trust-classified 1888 Yarra Glen Grand Hotel, and visit the Yarra Valley Dairy to savour handmade cheeses with excellent views. Indulge in a sumptuous meal amid elegant period surrounds at Eleonore's at Chateau Yering, hatted by The Age Good Food Guide, or jump on the boutique beer bandwagon with quality ale at Hargreaves Hill.
Meet the makers of some of Victoria's best-known wines at Yering Station, De Bortoli and TarraWarra Estate. Stumble upon iconic Australian art in bucolic surrounds that could be lifted straight from the easel at Yarra Glen's TarraWarra Museum of Art.
To behold the wineries and their stunning vine-laced surrounds, take a sunrise balloon flight over the valley.
