High tea tradition is alive across regional Victoria. There’s nothing more civilised than sating your sweet cravings in picturesque wineries, lush gardens, quaint villages and even out on the water. Multi-tier cake plates come laden with tiny triangular sandwiches, the softest of scones, perfect macarons, delicate gateaux and moreish savouries. Enjoy with a fresh pot of tea, or a glass of local bubbly.
Dress up in your finery for swish experiences at a winery. Take a tour, graze at historic homes or attend a high tea event. In the Yarra Valley, Sassafras is sweets heaven, a village with myriad tea-and-cake temptations, including Fortums, one of Victoria’s most popular high tea experiences.
