The proximity of Australian cities to vast open spaces is one of their finest features. You can explore the wilderness, undiscovered beaches, or — unsurprisingly — a nearby wine region. Melbourne is no different, with the renowned Yarra Valley close on its border. All that’s needed is you to complete the scene: cool climate wines, expansive vistas of farmland, and the Dandenong Ranges. Of course, you’ll need a place to stay. We at Winery Tour Yarra Valley have thus searched the area for the top hotels and places to stay in Yarra Valley, both on and near the area’s premier wineries, and have compiled a list of our favorites. Thank you very much.
Yarra Valley Winery Accommodation
There is something euphoric and dreamlike about staying on a vineyard. After your second sample, you don’t have to walk very far either!
One of the top attractions in the area, Balgownie Estate offers a variety of opulent activities in addition to five-star Yarra Valley lodging. This resort-style hotel complex has 70 suites, my favorite being the Deluxe Spa Suite. There are meeting and event spaces, a restaurant, a winery, and a day spa on the property (if you need a bit of a detox the day after). The hot air balloon flight that rises with the sun at morning and is followed by a Champaign breakfast, however, is the service they provide with the assistance of Global Ballooning. There isn’t a better way, in my opinion, to experience the Yarra Valley in its entirety.
Outlook Hill offers the experience of a farm-stay on a real, operating Yarra Valley winery. Independent spa suites, cottages, and single rooms are all situated above and provide views of the actual grapevines. They are located near Tarrawarra township, right between Yarra Glen wineries and Healesville, two significant centers that offer even more food and wine options. They provide a complimentary continental breakfast and bottle of wine—perhaps not at the same time, but hey, you’re on vacation!—and are close to the township.
Luxury Accommodation Yarra Valley
Luxury lodging in the Yarra Valley can be the ideal approach to mix things up if you’re looking for romance.
In every room of this expansive, fully 5-star, heritage-listed mansion, Chateau Yering boasts curtain folds galore, bathrooms with marble accents, and antique furnishings. To experience one of the most romantic locations the Yarra Valley has to offer, leave the 21st Century behind and twist the cap off the day’s cellar door purchase. Visit the Sweetwater Café for breakfast and Eleonor’s Restaurant for your evening meal (business or smart casual attire is appropriate). They can also provide conference space and adequate space for the entire office for your upcoming corporate retreat.
Myers Creek Cascades
Myers Creek Cascades offers tranquil homes tucked away in a lush, verdant rainforest environment on the more private end of the scale. We were sold after taking only one look at the pictures of the spa bath with the view of the ferns and forest gums. This location stands out as some of the greatest Yarra Valley lodging since it is absolutely unique. If you must go, pick from one of their “Memory Maker” packages and explore the variety of Healesville attractions in the area.
Boutique Accommodation, Yarra Valley
Perhaps you’re searching for something a little bit cutting edge and stylish. In Yarra Valley, there are some amazing boutique hotels. For what it’s worth, here is what we believe.
Holly Lane Mews
The greatest boutique bed and breakfast for pets in the Yarra Valley is Holly Lane Mews near Steels Creek. It provides as the ideal location for that weekend vacation you’ve been planning, boasting a wonderful garden and being close to the must-see De Bortoli or Yarrawood vineyards. They not only house your beloved four-legged family member but also have an outdoor pool and offer a continental meal till 10:30 in the morning.
Araluen Boutique Villas and Lodge
Araluen Boutique Villas and Lodge may be found in Steels Creek as well. You can just show up, lay out, and utilize our idyllic woodland setting retreat as a home base from which to explore the nearby wineries. We challenge you to avoid unwinding by their outdoor pool on a hot day or feeling tense while exploring the two hectares of beautiful gardens. It’s not feasible; trust us on this. If you want to socialize with other visitors, there are common rooms available. Additionally, a complimentary continental breakfast is offered every morning in their spacious, light-filled dining room.
