Unless you’re prone to hayfever, it’s highly likely that spring is your favourite season of the year.
The winter frosts have thawed, there’s just a hint of growth in the fields, the light blue skies look almost luminescent through the trees … well, you get the picture.
Needless to say spring is the time to wake from your slumber and reignite your adventurous spirit.
Luckily for you, there are endless options in the diverse and glorious Yarra Ranges.
And we here at Tourist News have got you covered.
For starters, we’re highlighting country racing Yarra Valley style, with the Spring Racing Carnival not escaping the region’s attention.
Yarra Valley Racing puts on a fine day for punters and the fashionistas alike, with the big city days enjoying a country make-over, including the Cox Plate, Melbourne Cup and Oaks Day.
A great way to add a touch of glamour to this spring.
We’ve highlighted five things to do in beautiful Belgrave, as well as mapped out the perfect day as experienced in outstanding Olinda.
You loved the alliteration there, didn’t you.
For the adventurous, ‘yours truly’ ventured out to explore some of the many hiking trails in Marysville, so our readers can gain a first-hand account of this inspiring experience.
Synonymous with the Yarra Valley is the fantastic wine, of course. So journalist Kath Gannaway has set about giving you greater insight into the local wine industry – and doubtlessly the inspiration to explore the many local wineries.
Not that you needed a push though, really.
Get out there and explore the Yarra Ranges.
