Urban List editors say: "If you, like us, are all about supporting local then you’ll love having lunch and a wine tasting at a communal urban winery that helps to launch the careers of Australia’s next generation of winemakers. We’ll drink to that!"
Get a true taste of the Yarra Valley with a delicious dinner crafted by a local chef, who focuses on sustainability and locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
Reconnect with nature on a bike ride along a historic trail that winds through vineyards, farmland and forest.
Connect with the community through their produce, learning from the experts in a gin masterclass and having a glass or two at a boutique winery.
This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.
