Acacia Ridge

Located in the heart of the Yarra Valley, Acacia Ridge is an elegant and rustic vineyard. It's not surprising that this is one of the most popular wedding venues in the region.

You can also hire out one of their many outdoor structures for your ceremony and reception.

Aside from the winery's award-winning wines, there are also some other features of this venue that make it a worthwhile destination. For instance, you'll find an impressive marquee. You can also use their large open-air wall to take in the vineyard's panoramic view.

Yarra Ranges national park

Yarra Ranges national park is located in the Central Highlands of Victoria. The area contains a large number of flora and fauna species, including Mountain Ash trees. The park has a number of walking trails. Some of these trails are suitable for families, while others require a certain level of fitness.

The park is home to some of the tallest trees in Australia. It has also been declared an IUCN Category 2 National Park. This means that the Yarra Ranges have a very high risk of bushfires. However, this does not mean that the park is closed to visitors.

The Yarra Ranges National Park is open throughout the year, with the best time to visit being in spring. It is also an excellent place for photography.

Yarra Valley excursions with a guide

Yarra Valley tours are also available as a self-drive experience. These trips can include wine tastings, picnic stops, and even chocolate demonstrations. These excursions usually include four wineries, lunch, and transportation.
