The Yarra Valley is a world class, world renowned wine region, reminiscent of Bordeaux or Burgundy in the South of France, or the Tuscany region of Northern Italy. It is a place of unspoilt pristine beauty, where the water and the air are clean and crisp, the views spectacular and the friendly ambience invites you to just rest for a while, kick back and savour the very best regional or international cuisine on offer… or a glass of world class wine. Whatever your indulgence you’re sure to find it in the Yarra Valley.
This is the place that dreams are made of… and where dreams really do come true! Stay for a day, a weekend, a week or a month… or like some of us that live here, come for a visit and stay for a lifetime.
It’s that kind of place…
The Yarra Valley has three major highways running through it, each with its own kind of beauty and each offering you your own memorable experience. The Warburton Highway, Maroondah Highway and Melba Highway all wind their way through the majestic Yarra Valley and all offer visitors a unique experience to be treasured for a lifetime.
Travelling from Melbourne along the Maroondah Highway, the Warburton Highway peels away from the Maroondah Highway between Lilydale and Coldstream and then the Melba Highway branches off from the Maroondah at Coldstream with “Coombe Cottage”, the historic home of Australia’s famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, fronting both highways.
Whether you are a lover of the gastronomic delights of fine food and wine…… in search of an indulgent, therapeutically, romantic getaway…… wish to just simply take time out to relax and recoup in one of the many peaceful accommodation properties…… like to be inspired by nature and walk amongst the natural beauty of our towering eucalypt forests…… or taste the abundant array of fresh farm produce…… it all awaits you here, in marvellous Melbourne’s unforgettably idyllic Yarra Valley!
So! As you can see, wherever you choose to escape within the spectacular Yarra Valley, whether it is journeying the Melba, Maroondah or Warburton Highways…… or a little closer to Melbourne, we can make your dreams come true.
