Sampling the Local Pride in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia
The Yarra Valley Cheese and Wine Trail takes gourmets on a carefully selected tour of one of Australia's most delicious regions. Visitors can collect a picnic hamper and a map from the Healesville Hotel, the starting point of the trail. Your moveable feast is stocked with four local cheeses, crackers, olives, and dried fruit, as well as all the necessary utensils like a cheese knife and board—not to mention, a map with tasting notes. On a self-drive tour of the cellar doors, the idea is to taste wines specifically matched to the cheeses in the hamper. It’s a fitting tribute to fine local produce and a delicious day away.
