Covid Update: Sadly many of these festivals are not currently operating. Please get in touch to find out what is on at the moment.
A celebration of Italian culture in the Yarra Valley! Food, cars, music, art, tradition and of course, wine!
Held in the middle of winter every year, its a race around the Valley to eat (and drink) as much as you can before the sun goes down! Many smaller wineries participate. Get your tickets early to avoid missing out!
This is the real boutique, where the small, family owned and run producers get together and make a big noise! Often overlooked on the main tourist trail, these smaller wineries and producers put on a real show for Shed Fest every year. It's awesome, it's fun and you don't even have to book. Just turn up at your first winery and - party!
Why not include this once a year event on your wine tour? It's a crazy day, with lots of producers displaying their wares within the Healesville Sanctuary. Wine + Wildlife is sure to = good times!
Definitely the biggest live music draw card to the Yarra Valley each summer. Get in early as tickets can sell out the day artists are announced! All Access Tours has priority access for guest pick up and drop offs. Why not enjoy a wine tour and long lunch before heading into the concert?
Many visitors to Tarrawarra choose to spend a number of days in the Valley getting settled into a good wine haze as they enjoy the Besen family's privately owned modern art collection. A magnificent venue featuring award winning architecture, restaurant, cafe, Cellar Door and Galley all set withing beautifully landscaped gardens. The museum is often added into a wine tour to create a very diverse itinerary.
Want a sneak peek into the true spirit and culture of country life? The Healesville Music Festival is as true as it gets. A fully catered day of music and fun whether you are 6 years old or 60!
A huge event on the calendar for the horse lovers and punters. Get dressed up and try your luck at one of Victorias' most celebrated and historic country racing venues!
Healesville, Yarra Glen, Warburton, Marysville - all have magnificent weekly/monthly markets. Some small, some large, but all are a great way to try and buy some of the best local produce, beer, wine and craft that the Yarra Valley has to offer!
