- Duration: 9 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: YVWPTE
A very full & enthralling day, starting with Australian wildlife and finishing with fine food & wine.
De Bortoli (producers of Noble One, Australia's most awarded dessert wine).
We start our day around 8.30am and travel directly to the world-famous Healesville Sanctuary, one of Australia's most recognised and acclaimed wildlife sanctuaries.
With 30 hectares of bushland, it showcases more than 200 species of Australian wildlife in a distinctly Australian setting. Here, visitors can experience close-up encounters with some of Australia's most unique and captivating wildlife in their natural habitat, including koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingoes, birds of prey and platypus.
We then travel to the Dominique Portet Vineyard for lunch and wine tasting. With a long heritage that goes back to the 18th century in Bordeaux, the father and son team of Dominique and Ben proudly continue their rich family traditions.
Following a relaxing lunch, travel through to the Bortoli Winery at Dixons Creek. As Italian as Domaine Chandon is French, it's a great finish to the day with superbly flavoured cheeses that compliment the sparkling, table and dessert wines
Our journey home can take us through Steels Creek and the rolling Christmas Hills. Expect to be back to your accommodation by around 6.15pm.
