Healesville is an ideal weekend getaway destination just an hour’s drive from Melbourne. The town and surrounding countryside offers a wide range of attractions to ensure your weekend break is a memorable one.
Healesville is located in the Yarra Valley, Victoria – one of Australia’s leading wine regions. There are over 60 wineries to choose from in this wine lovers paradise. If you’d like to sample the wines without the worry of drink driving there are specialised wine tour companies that we can recommend.
Winery & Restaurant Recommendations
Many of the wineries have restaurants and some of our favourites include:
Chandon: laidback atmosphere, great casual dining, incredible scenery
Oakridge: superb views and offers both indoor and outdoor dining
The Vines at Helen’s Hill: more fantastic views and an elegant dining experience
Toolangi Tavern: not a winery but a delightful place to visit if you fancy a drive through the picturesque mountain range. Good service, great food and a cosy open fire.
Our luxury accommodation is located in the centre of Healesville which makes it a terrific base for exploring both sides of the Yarra Valley. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway Victoria this region is a slice of heaven!
We look forward to your visit.
