What You Can Expect

Experience a morning tea like no other with the bright and colorful birds of The Dandenongs at the Sherbrooke Forest. Try an Aussie Bush Billy Tea and perhaps try a bit of Vegemite with some crackers. There is also the opportunity to hand feed the birds, who are always eager for a bite to eat (bird feed at own expense).

After morning tea you will board the historic Puffing Billy steam train as it winds its way through the lush rainforest to Menzies Creek. This is such a fun experience for those of all ages. After the train ride it's time for lunch. Lunch is spent at Fergusson's Winery where they put on a delicious spit roast lunch (vegetarian options available) that you can enjoy with a glass of their wine. There is also the opportunity after lunch to try additional wines in the cellar door.

For those who love chocolate and ice cream, you'll then be taken to a chocolate lovers heaven at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. Here you can try free samples of chocolates, buy plenty of chocolate and gifts and if you're lucky you may also catch them making the chocolate!

The afternoon is then spent trying some of the Yarra Valley's finest wines. First stop is at the famous Rochford Winery where you will join a wine appreciation tasting. There is also a great shop to buy local produce. Next you will visit Dominique Portet where you can enjoy tastings and a tour before heading back to Melbourne CBD
