Full description
There is no better way to see a country’s landscape than through the windows of a train. Puffing Billy, Australia’s famous narrow gauge railway, takes you on a ride in a bygone era, through the Blue Dandenong Ranges. Perhaps you’ll even hear the call of the kookaburra or the bellbird above Billy’s cheerful whistle.

Marvel at the wide vistas of farmland and vineyards as you travel through the Yarra Valley. Enjoy complimentary chocolate tastings and view displays of premium chocolates and European Chocolatiers at work while you visit the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery.

Through the course of the day, visit the renowned Rochford Wines and sample some of their award-winning wines. Next, explore the beautiful boutique winery of Dominique Portet, where they still use traditional French methods to make their wines. Treat yourself to a wine tasting and lunch at Fergusson's Winery.
