Or drifting peacefully over the beautiful wineries of the Yarra Valley, enjoying one of the best things to do in this stunning countryside. Do not forget Daylesford & Ballarat too - fly over the Wombat State Forest, or around the Hepburn Springs Region, and finish your day off with a massage as you wish.
