What to Expect

Spend an unforgettable day exploring the Yarra Valley with the ease of a hop-on, hop-off bus. Showcasing the best of Yarra Valley's amazing food and wine producers, as well as local beer, gin, cider and rum-makers, make your own tasting journey through this scenic wine region at your own pace. With two great routes to choose from, the Red Route and the Green Route, there is something to suit everyone's tastes!

 

The Yarra Valley is renowned for cool-climate sparklings (that rival the finest our French brethren can produce), languorous lunches and for being a countryside sanctuary for beings both human and beast alike. Not just about wine, the region also has a cracking gin scene to uncover, ridiculously good chocolate, and a series of craft brews to rival anywhere.  

 

First, choose your start and finish destination, whether you are travelling from Melbourne CBD or Lilydale, you will need a Metro Ticket, or if you are already in the Yarra Valley, you can choose an In Region Ticket and join the bus at any of the stops on your route. Your next step is to choose between the Red Route or the Green Route so that you can plan your day using the timetable provided and hop on and off at any stops along the way. Take the hassle out of choosing a designated driver and just sit back, relax and enjoy your day. There will be free water available on board the bus to rehydrate as you make your way to your next amazing destination.
