Things To Do in Yarra Valley - wineries yarra valley

Many wineries find a unique way to present their wines and want you to relax and enjoy yourself. Small bites may accompany the wines, or there may be live music or a chance to visit the vineyards. All wineries have the same aim in mind. They want you to enjoy yourself, have fun, taste the wines and create a memorable experience you will cherish.

Bottles of wine are often for purchase at the end of your visit. It can be well worth it to take home a great bottle of wine for dinner, a gift, a souvenir, and be able to recreate your visit again in the comfort of your own home. Some wineries may even have space where you can stay and enjoy another glass on the premise with your friends. Remember, so much can vary depending on your desires as a visitor. How much of the production facility is open for public viewing, and what unique features your winery host would like to share will also shape your experience. Wine provides more than a taste. It is often an expression of a region, a place, a family, and a season. At Ami Tours, we hope you will enjoy discovering the nuances of every glass of wine. Please drink responsibly and take care to ensure a safe ride to and from your visit.

Find Yourself in the award-winning vineyards, cellar doors and wineries of the Yarra Valley such as Yarra Valley, Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery Four Pillars Gin Distillery, Coldstream Brewery, Yering Station Winery. Wander the back roads, discover the secrets, share the stories and shake the hands that picked the grapes of the next glass of wine you’ll enjoy from this famous cool climate wine region.

Eat & Drink

The tall towering forests and natural surrounds of the Yarra Valley provide some top places to stop for a refreshing drink accompanied by a delicious meal at any time. From intimate restaurants and contemporary cafes in the villages and townships to venues with spectacular views over the vineyards or the city. Perhaps you'll enjoy fresh scones and Devonshire tea, or choose something savory or sweet from the wonderful local bakeries and coffee shops. There are restaurants with kitchen gardens that you can wander through, chefs with passion, and local produce that inspires people to keep returning to our tables.

Markets & Shopping

With a mix of craft, food, and night markets, there is something on every weekend somewhere in the Yarra Valley. The towns and villages are filled with interesting specialty shops brimming with beautifully chosen and designed goods from local craftspeople and well-selected examples from those further afield.


We all love eating fresh and seasonally - it just tastes better. Visiting the local farm gates lets you meet the farmers, growers, and makers, which is both a rewarding and insightful experience. Smell the fresh air and find yourself in the red soils of the Upper Yarra where potatoes have grown for decades; forage through the U-Pick orchards and taste the difference as you indulge in your bounty at day's end.

Nature & Adventure

One of the best places to encounter Australian wildlife is its natural habitat. Enjoy our backyard of adventure playgrounds and picnic spots. Try our bushwalking trails along creeks and streams and under towering forests. Wander the tracks, climb the hills, and discover the region's natural beauty.


Sometimes we just need another point of view, someone to show us around and take the stress out of our day completely. If you need a guide, a chauffeur or transfer from one venue to the next, we have the people to assist you. Take a winery tour with friends and family and be collected from your accommodation. Want to see the region from a different view? Take a helicopter tour for an unforgettable bird's eye view trip or let a trained guide show you through the forest and uncover a world you may never have known existed under your feet.

Gardens & Nurseries

The rich soils of the Yarra Valley provide the perfect conditions for some of Melbourne’s best ornamental gardens, plant and flower nurseries, and landscape designers, some of who have even won gold presenting Australian Show Gardens on the international stage. Nature takes center stage throughout the region. Take the time to be outdoors and feel the difference. Fresh air, stunning views, amazing wildlife, and spectacular gardens make for an entirely wonderful adventure.


Yarra Valley has a terrific array of hero attractions you'll want to add to your "to do" list. Perhaps even a few bucket-list activities, such as hot air ballooning and more. Organize a trip around one or two of these, and you will create a stay no one will ever forget.


The quintessential road trip needs great company, singalong music, car snacks and an amazing destination. These drives in the Yarra Valley will get you outside the city limits to explore and discover, new places and all types of experiences. With pretty villages to stop at along the way, ever-changing vistas that blend effortlessly from perfectly aligned vineyards to open pastures, from rolling hills with uninterrupted views to cathedral-like towering Mountain ash and forest ferns, these drives will show you the ‘real’ countryside of Victoria and are all within an hour of Melbourne. Whether you're travelling with children, looking for an adventure or simply in need of a nature fix, queue up your playlist and hit the road. In theory, you'll be out and back in 3 hours return drive from Melbourne, but be prepared for plenty of stops – these road trips have loads to enjoy along the way.
