Yarra Valley is a mecca for wine lovers - some of the most renowned wines in Australia come from this region. Undulating landscapes and picturesque vineyards make touring around this area delightful, especially in Autumn. Unique to the Yarra Valley is Healesville Sanctuary, a bushland haven for Australian Wildlife, a must-see for both local and overseas visitors. Part of Zoos Victoria, Healesville Sanctuary has played a pivotal role in ensuring the survival of many endangered species, including Victoria's own mammal emblem - the tiny Leadbeater's possum. Another Sanctuary highlight is the birds of prey and parrot exhibit, Spirits of the Sky. Walk along the Yarra River in Warburton, lunch at one of the many historic hotels in the area or simply take in the views around what must surely be one of the most beautiful valleys in Australia. From world class restaurants to first class bakeries, ice-cream shops to antique shops - Marysville, Healesville, Toolangi, Yarra Glen, Dixon's Creek, Yering, Coldstream, Buxton, Warburton, Yarra Junction, Seville - the list goes on. Each town unique and each town very much a part of this vibrant and colorful region.
