Guests wanting to explore beyond Melbourne have the luxury to see the diversity of Victoria, which is an easy 60 to 90 minute drive from Treasury on Collins. Here are our recommendations.
- Mornington Peninsula
The stunning beaches of the Mornington Peninsula will see Melbournians flock to the seaside towns for a weekend getaway for some rejuvenation. With beaches on my side and vineyards on the other, there is something for everyone to escape to.
- Yarra Valley
The beautiful Yarra Valley is filled with well known to boutique wineries, local cheese makers, hatted fine dining restaurants and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. If you prefer to leave the car in the car park, there are plenty of day tours to the Yarra Valley.
- Dandenong Ranges
This scenic part of Victoria is littered with quaint towns and villages. Visit Miss Marples in Sassafras for home made scones, hop on steam train Puffing Billy or step into little Holland at the Tessalaar Tulip Festival (pictured)
Spa Country is calling! For a day of relaxation, Daylesford offers natural mineral baths at the Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa. There’s nowhere else you’d rather be but if you’re feeling a bit peckish, dine at the award winning Lake House Restaurant and walk it off with a scenic nature walk.
Werribee is only a 30 minute drive from Melbourne and here you’ll find Werribee Open Plain Zoo and the heritage listed Werribee Mansion. The kids will enjoy the zoo safari tour and get up close (not that close) to giraffes, zebras and roaming rhinos. Werribee mansion’s vast grounds is ideal for a picnic afterwards or their restaurant offers high tea every Sunday.
No car, no problem, there are day tours to any of these regions. Please ask reception for more details.
