Only have a few days for a holiday, which restricts you from going away somewhere exciting? Do you then end up sitting at home and doing house work on your time off because you don’t have long enough? Well you shouldn’t stay home, you should make the most of what little time you have. A quick getaway to the Yarra Valley is the ideal short holiday if you only have limited time.

Now you’re probably thinking to yourself, what’s there to do in the Yarra Valley to entertain me for a few days, but I have some advice for you on some great things to do! There are plenty of Yarra Valley day tours that you can do so you are still getting the excitement of being as adventurous as you would be on a bigger holiday.

Do you have young children that you need to entertain? Well some popular destinations with the kids are Healesville Sanctuary and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery Healesville Sanctuary is home to not only native Australian Animals, but a lot of winged and furry friends as well. Perfect for entertaining the kids! Another winner with the young ones is the popular Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery in Yarra Glen. Indulging in loads of chocolate and ice cream and heaps of yummy food is enough to keep anyone of any age happy!

However, if you don’t have kids you have to satisfy and you are wanting to do more of a relaxing activity, then doing a Yarra Valley winery tour might just be the thing for you! Going from winery to winery, sampling various wines whilst enjoying some delicious food sounds like a winner to me!

Choosing where to stay is always one of the most difficult decisions for me to make. My advice is, that if you enjoy being amongst nature and to be in a more secluded area, then staying somewhere in the Dandenongs or out near Warburton would be great. On the other hand, there are heaps of cute little country towns you can stay at such as Healesville or Yarra Glen which are just as beautiful. There are so many options of accommodation in the Yarra Valley so you’ll find the perfect place for you.

The Yarra Valley is such a big place and so there are heaps and heaps of things you can do and in my opinion, it is the perfect place for a little getaway so make sure you go.
