Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges Private Tour

Climb every mountain with a little help from Puffing Billy on Acacia’s Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges tour.

Beginning in the most picturesque fashion, we’ll whisk you an hour away from Melbourne and seemingly back in time as you ride the time-honoured steam train through the fern-covered gullies of this magical, mountainous land. If you’re feeling brave, why not dangle your legs over the side?

After a spot of lunch at either Levantine Hill or Oakridge wineries, both much-loved heroes of the Yarra Valley wine region, we’ll guide you to your pick of the region’s many and varied destinations, including the option of visiting native Australian animals at Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary or the home of Victorian era opera singer and Australian legend Dame Nelly Melba’s Coombe Estate.

We also recommend a stopover at the impossibly scenic TarraWarra Estate. After tasting their award-winning wines, art lovers won’t want to miss out on the contemporary cool of the TarraWarra Museum of Art.
