per adult Price is NZ$230

Ride the historic Puffing Billy steam train through the spectacular Blue Dandenong Ranges on this day tour. Traverse the rich Yarra Valley and continue your journey with either a wine tasting tour or a visit to Healesville Sanctuary, home to over 200 species of Australian wildlife.

Begin your tour with a pick-up from your Melbourne hotel and sit back and relax as you journey to the Blue Dandenong Ranges. Arrive at Sherbrooke Forest, the heart of the Dandenongs, and hand-feed colourful crimson rosellas and king parrots. While here, enjoy traditional Australian billy tea with savoury Vegemite spread and chocolate-and-coconut lamington cakes.

Continue to the town of Belgrave and board the famous Puffing Billy steam train. Soak up the scenery as you ride through the lush forest with tall mountain-ash eucalyptus trees and fern gullies. Cross the old wooden trestle bridge before disembarking at Menzies Creek.

Back on board the coach, travel to Yarra Valley for some chocolate tasting and a delicious spit roast lunch with a glass of wine at Fergusson Winery.

Depending on the option selected, you may spend the afternoon at Healesville Sanctuary, home to native animals like wallabies, wombats, kangaroos and koalas. Alternatively, explore Yarra Valley on an afternoon wine tasting tour. Visit two boutique wineries, sample their favourite wines, and take a guided vineyard tour.

Great experience, not to be missed. I loved seeing the Dandenongs. The lunch was excellent but the ambience was not pleasurable, too many tour buses. The Healesville Sanctuary is a must see, better than a zoo. It's the best one in Australia and their work in conservation is commendable.
