1 Days

Spend a day exploring the Yarra Valley in total luxury. We are happy to work with you to design a tour that will suit all of your needs and interests. As well as wineries, the region offers steam train rides and great wildlife experiences.


Traveling with your private group, your day begins with collection from your city hotel at 0900 and a drive down Melbourne's famous “St Kilda Boulevard” and through the picturesque eastern suburbs.

We follow a scenic route through to the Dandenong Ranges with its impressive Mountain Ash forest to Belgrave where Puffing Billy, Australia’s oldest surviving and most famous preserved steam railway, will be waiting for you to depart. On completion of you steam train journey in Lakeside, we continue our journey through the beautiful Dandenong Ranges and visit the Mt. Dandenong Observatory for stunning views over Melbourne and its surrounds.

We then travel to one of Victoria’s premium wine regions, the Yarra Valley. Here you will be entertained with a fine lunch at one of the most beautiful wineries in the region. After lunch we will take you to one of the Moet and Chandon estate properties, Domain Chandon where a self guided walk around the winery shows the extensive and elaborate systems and machinery thay have invested in to produce their wines. To end the day you will be able to take in the views of the

region with a glass of Chandon's sparkling and sample some of the gourmet local produce.

A scenic route brings us back to the city and your hotel by 5 pm.

Our guide Glenn's first comment was "there are no silly questions". Although I think we challenged that comment, you will not find anyone with more information about the Great Ocean Road. The spectacular scenery was only enhanced by Glenn's narratives and his willingness to accommodate our changes to his schedule. A well paced tour that is well worth the fee.

I took a solo trip to Australia on Feb/ March 2015 and this tour with Pierre of Natural Treasures was one of the highlights of my holiday. I would happily recommend it to anyone who wishes to be shown and informed about the many treasures along this beautiful stretch of coastline.

We were more than happy with our three day tour of The Great Ocean Road and the Grampians with Jeremy of Natural Treasures Touring. The small group tour was just what we liked: leisurely, knowledgeable, good food, great accommodation. We had time to really have a good look at the things that make the area so beautiful.
