Victoria may be Australia’s smallest mainland state, but its Yarra Valley vineyards are some of the country’s oldest, dating back to the 1830s. Lying just to the north east of the state capital Melbourne, Yarra Valley’s relatively cool climate produces bright, complex wines, most famously Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. And because the vineyards are so close to Melbourne, you can choose either to base yourself in the city or the country; our range of Yarra Valley wine hotels includes both.
Two excellent-value city hotels include The Prince, in the seaside suburb of St Kilda, and the quirky Cullen in the Prahran district.
