Grape Grazing Festival, Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia
Show map

Events

Combine the best things in life in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, with food, wine, the arts and nature coming together for memorable moments.

Dishing up the best in the Yarra Valley
Pay homage to Dame Nellie Melba, Australia's most famous opera singer, at the springtime Melba Festival, showcasing food, wine and classical music.

Don your work boots for Shedfest, when the Warburton Highway wineries dust off their sheds for fine wine and frivolity. Rock up to Rochford Winery for A Day on the Green Summer Festival, and duck into winery restaurants for the annual shortest and longest lunches.

Celebrating nature in the Dandenong Ranges
Rejoice in spring when the Dandenong Ranges burst with colour. The Tesselaar's Tulip Festival in September is a breathtaking display of tulips, freesias and daffodils, and the National Rhododendron Gardens' Rhododendron Festival is a profusion of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.
