Australian travel vacations are one part journey, one part destination. There are so many places in Australia worth going to, and the experience becomes all the better when you can travel there in class and style. Historic vineyards have long been an ideal destination for holidaymakers, and Australia’s Yarra Valley is one such retreat that offers a full package of entertainment, including luxury travel and a location that is simply breathtaking to behold.
First up is the travel arrangements that can be made. The Yarra Valley prides itself on being a first-class tourist attraction, and over time has developed a number of well-appointed luxuries that can be enjoyed while driving through lovely Victoria. For example, guests can arrange to book a classic Chevrolet convertible, a chauffeured limousine or even a horse-drawn carriage for their ride through the countryside. Alternatively there is the genuinely “over the top” option of chartering a luxury hot air balloon for a sunrise trip over the beautiful hillsides of the valley, followed by a champagne breakfast back on the ground.
Of course, the experience doesn’t stop with the journey. Life in the valley has been described as a series of lunches, and it’s definitely true. Gourmet degustation meals with wines selected to match, barbeques at the smaller wineries, and a number of cafe style experiences mean that visitors will have more than enough chance to pair up the world famous Yarra wines with some of the equally-legendary Aussie cuisine. Toward the end of the day, guests can also visit the William Sacketts sanctuary and experience the wonders of native aboriginal art and culture, as local guides explain the origin of the sculptures and the legendary time that the native peoples simply call the Dream.
In short, Yarra Valley is an excellent travel vacation destination full of exciting and comfortable ways to get around, and plenty of delights to enjoy and sample during a stay.
