Board the historic Puffing Billy train ride through the Dandenongs to Menzies Creek. This tour also includes wine tasting and lunch at Fergusson's winery, Aussie Bush Billy tea and a stop at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. The afternoon is spent at Healesville Sanctuary, abundant with Australian animals!
Enjoy a morning tea like no other with the bright and colorful birds of The Dandenongs in the Sherbrooke Forest. Try an Aussie Bush Billy Tea with lamington cakes or perhaps try a bit of Vegemite. There is also the opportunity to hand feed the birds, who are always wanting a bite to eat (bird feed at own expense).
After morning tea board the historic Puffing Billy steam train as it winds it's way through the lush rainforest to Menzies Creek. This is a fun experience for those of all ages. After the train ride it's time for lunch. Lunch is spent at Fergusson's Winery where they put on a delicious spit roast lunch (vegetarian options available) that you can enjoy with a glass of wine.
For those who love chocolate and ice cream, you'll then be taken to a chocolate lovers heaven at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. Here you can try free samples of chocolates, buy plenty of chocolate and gifts and if you're lucky you may also catch them making the chocolate!
Then, visit Healesville Sanctuary for a truly Aussie experience. See Australian animals like Tasmanian Devils, Emus, Koalas, Kangaroos, Platypus, Dingoes and many more! Make sure you catch the "Spirits of the Sky" show there too.
