Escape the City Over the Easter Long Weekend

What do we spend our money on? Every year, Australians spend around $3 billion. However, only $200 million of that is spent on Easter eggs or gifts. Where does the rest of this money go? The majority of the money is spent on weekend getaways, holidays, or even single-day experiences.

Melbourne was ranked as the top destination for both domestic and international travelers in 2016, according to a study by HotelsCombined and The Yarra Valley, one of Victoria’s most beautiful and popular places to visit – and one of Australia’s leading viticultural areas – is a great place to spend Easter.


In 2017, the Australian Wine Tour Company ranked as the five most popular Australian tours on TripAdvisor. This was due to the thoughtful planning we put into our premium private tours and winery day tours. Read on to find out how you can spend Easter with us in the Yarra Valley.


The Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery


Our custom-made tours can include this stop, even though it is not included in our standard day tour. This indulgent location overlooks vineyards, a beautiful lake, and rolling hills. It offers a variety of handcrafted Easter goodies, rich desserts, and creamy ice cream.


The Chocolaterie is a great place for Easter egg hunting, chocolate-making classes, or to take a break from diet for four days.


Balgownie Estate Vineyard Resort & Spa


What could be more delicious than a lunch à la carte and a glass or two of the finest wine from Balgownie Estate? Maybe two glasses of wine? On one of our day tours, you will receive lunch and a house wine. You can purchase as many drinks as you want, but you should save some room to taste other wines along the way.


Domaine Chandon


A guided tour of Domaine Chandon is included in our standard winery tour, along with a glass or two of their premium sparkling wines. This vineyard is a world-class winery that bridges the gap between Australia, France, and the other sparkling wines in Australia. Chandon’s history dates back to the 1950s. In the decades since, the venue has become the heart of Australia’s sparkling industry.



Healesville Sanctuary


Healesville Sanctuary is a popular stop on our premium, customizable, and private day and weekend tours.


Healesville Sanctuary is a haven of Australian wildlife. Visitors can see dingoes and owls up close, as well as wallabies and Australia’s favorite native species, the koala.


A stroll in the park can be a great way to relax after a weekend filled with drinking.
