Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be met at your hotel by your expert Localing guide for a 10 am start. The short drive to the Yarra Valley is a great chance to share some of your tastes and interests so these can be made a feature of your uniquely tailored experience.
Sit back and get to know your host in a luxury touring vehicle equipped with wi-fi, water and a selection of Victorian treats. Take the backroads for a scenic journey through quiet leafy suburbs and rolling hills.
You might like to go behind the scenes at Victoria’s premier Wildlife Park, Healesville Sanctuary. Choose the option to have a ranger personally take you to meet, feed and pet our favourite cuddly creatures, or enjoy the park at your own pace.
Head behind a few cellar doors to chat with wine-makers and sample some of the region’s best local wines including plenty of wonderful pinots and chardonnays.
The region is renowned for farm-to-plate experiences at restaurants and cellar doors. Enjoy a casual lunch or something more elegant among rolling hills and sprawling vineyards (we don't include lunch so you are free to choose based on your tastes and pay at the cost price).
Finish the day with a visit to a state-of-the-art gin distillery, producing some of the world’s best gins using quintessentially Australian botanicals.
The local dairy produces some stunning cow and sheep cheese, which makes a lovely alternative for non-gin drinkers or choose to spend the time enjoying a leisurely walk around a stunning local reservoir.
Your Localing host will have you back in Melbourne by 6 pm (start and finish times can be varied to suit your needs).
