Overview

Outdoor activities

Work up an appetite on the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges' tracks and trails, snowfields and golf courses, or float high above it all in a hot air balloon.

See the scenery from way up high or on two feet

Float above the Yarra Valley on a sunrise balloon flight and pinpoint the tracks, trails, and locations for the rest of the day's activities.

Set out on two feet along the tracks and trails of the region's national parks. Hike to waterfalls and wineries, over rugged escarpments and along clear creeks.

Exploring the mountains on bike or skis

Try mountain biking like a pro at the site of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games mountain biking events, or hit the roads and rail trails for a different look at the region.

In winter, ski cross country, toboggan or have an old-fashioned snowball fight at Lake Mountain or Mount Donna Buang – Melbourne's two closest snow playgrounds.

Before you move on to the wineries and restaurants, find time to play a round of golf, catch a fish at a trout farm, or pitch your tent in preparation.
