Wander off the beaten path for intimate experiences on this gastronomic adventure

Punctuated by a morning tea in the picturesque township of Yea, you’ll be mesmerised by the staggering beauty on show during the drive from Melbourne to the High Country’s mountainous expanse, dotted with rolling vineyards and picture-perfect townships.

The first port of call on your two-day Acacia tour of the majestic King Valley is the family-run “Prosecco Road” champion Pizzini Wines, where you’ll enjoy a picnic in their beautiful gardens after a cheese-matched wine tasting. From there, take your pick of the neighbouring vineyards.

Once you’ve checked into the greenery-shrouded retreat of Albertine’s Beechworth Boutique Hotel, prepare for dinner at one of the stars of regional Victoria’s dining scene, the much-awarded restaurant Provenance. Situated in what was once the gold rush Bank of Australasia, chef Michael Ryan’s menu has been heavily influenced by his travels in Japan.

Setting out for the beauty of Bright, perched on a glittering stretch of the Ovens River cupped by mountains, take in the local vineyards and breweries in this breathtaking spot that’s best viewed from the peak of Huggin’s Lookout.
