Travel east for about 35 kms from Melbourne to reach your first stop, the Dandenongs Ranges. The mountains rise to about 630 metres above sea-level and is covered with rich rainforests inhabited by native wildlife. Known for its authentic art and craft stores & homemade produce, the area is also home to the tallest flowering plant in the world, Mountain Ash trees, numerous waterfalls and the renowned Puffing Billy Railway!
At the heart of the Dandenongs lies Grants on Sherbrooke, your tea-stop for the day. Sip Devonshire tea with a side of homemade scones, served warm with jam and cream. Take in lush jungle views while breathing in fresh mountain air, enjoying a tea-time break like never before!
Once done with tea, hand-feed some feathered Aussie friends like the Crimson rosella, Sulphur-crested cockatoo and Pink-chested galah. Get some snaps with them to make most of your rainforest sojourn!
A century-old steam train ride is next on the cards! Catch roving views of every place right from Sherbrooke Forest, Trestle Bridge, Menzies Creek and Port Phillip Bay.
Head down to Yarra Valley cloaked by views of the Great Dividing Range. Once you arrive, you’ll be taken to Rochford Winery alongside two other leading wineries. Once done, get back to Melbourne on the coach.
Nothing better to end a trip than some velvety local wines, right? Make the most of it. Cheers!
