The Yarra Valley is renowned as the birthplace of Victorian wine, but there is also a fabulous food scene just waiting to be discovered after dark. From family-friendly to a romantic night out for two; whether you are seeking classic comfort food or more refined dishes that will have your taste buds salivating, here are some of our favourite places for an evening out when staying with us.

Discover Australian Wildlife on Your Doorstep

Yering Gorge Cottages provides a stunning natural setting where bushland intersects with the Yarra River against the backdrop of the Christmas Hills and Dividing Ranges. Our guests have the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife during their stay.

Healesville Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary is Victoria’s leading destination to see and interact with Australian wildlife. Set amongst stunning native bushlands, The Sanctuary is home to over 200 unique Australian species – more than any other wildlife park or zoo across Australia. Just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne and located in the heart of the Yarra Valley winery region, The Sanctuary allows visitors to enjoy a great day out with both wildlife and great local wine.

Bush Walking Trails

Enjoy the luxury of panoramic views of the Yarra Valley and The Eastern Golf Club once you reach the summit. Yering Gorge Cottages features 12km of self-guided bush walking trails within our 120-acre private nature reserve which can be used by guests during their stay. Within our nature reserve there are also several areas that are perfect for picnics and sightseeing.


With a philosophy to create an environment in harmony with the broader landscape, The Eastern Golf Club commissioned Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) to design our 27-hole championship standard course plus Shark Waters – a Par-3 nine-hole course.


Located adjacent to our golf practice facility precinct is our floodlit, synthetic grass championship viewing court. Tennis equipment can be borrowed from The Sports Shop.


Situated in the TaylorMade Performance Centre building at the golf practice facility precinct, the Gymnasium houses a multitude of training options. Featuring equipment by Technogym & Iron Edge, our gymnasium caters for every day exercise as well as elite athlete strength & conditioning.

Global Ballooning Australia

We rise before the sun almost every day of the year because we believe there’s something magical about experiencing the world from the sky. Nothing excites us more than bringing out a child-like joy in adults and a sense of wonderment in children. It’s all part of a journey that’s finished by 9am, but leaves a lifelong impression.

De Bortoli

De Bortoli Wines is one of Australia's oldest wine making families - with the third generation of this visionary family now the custodians and mentors to the next generation - also known as the 'Fourth Genners'.

Cherryhill Orchards

CherryHill Orchards is Victoria’s largest cherry-picking orchard located at two convenient locations – Coldstream and Wandin East in the Yarra Valley. Every Spring and Summer, CherryHill Orchards comes to life, welcoming guests to take in the beautiful sights of their Blossom flowers and pick the best-tasting cherries straight from their trees.

Coombe Yarra Valley

Once the home of Dame Nellie Melba, Coombe Yarra Valley is a property with unrivalled provenance. Seven acres of stunning gardens surround the beautifully appointed facilities in the restored motor house and clock tower, offering a truly unique cultural destination.

Puffing Billy

Step into a timeless world of wonder with Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy, located in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges and only one-hour east of Melbourne.

Play a Round with some Australian Locals

The Greg Norman designed, 27-hole championship standard course opened on July 1, 2015.  Featuring three courses, including one top ranked golf course in Golf Australia Magazine’s ‘Top 100 Golf Courses Australia 2024’, golfers are presented with a highly playable environment; with a course design that ensures the spectacular natural features and dramatic views are maximised to enrich the playing experience.

Creating Magical Family Memories Together

As we head into the winter school holidays, the Yarra Valley has an abundance of experiences that can be enjoyed by ‘kids of all ages’. Whether you’re searching for some outdoor fun, a bit of culture or fabulous places to dine – we’ve curated our list of things to do and see together. 

We're pouring 'G & T's' from our mini bar for your drinking pleasure

After the success of their Rare Dry ‘G & T’ in a ready-to-drink-can, the team at Four Pillars have done the same with their ‘cult-favourite’ Bloody Shiraz – and we are delighted to add it to our mini bar offer for your drinking pleasure.

A real nature experience - must go. Well, what can I say about this property. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Just being in the nature and animals was enough. Chalets were very nice, placed very well around the property for privacy and furnished well. Thank you, Yering Gorge for a really relaxed stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. - Guide02157087360

A well-hidden oasis in the Yarra Valley. Last minute decision to visit the Yarra Valley led us to staying here for one night. We didn’t know the cottages are behind a golf club and course but check-in was efficient and warm. The cottage we stayed in was well equipped and a true peace oasis with access to a private trail along the Yarra River and kangaroos wandering about all day long so even spending time in the balcony was truly enjoyable. Access to wineries and other attractions made the location very central and we ended having a great time there away from Melbourne. So glad we stayed here! - Toyo3

What a gem! A perfect place to relax and unwind. The location is very peaceful - birdsong, fresh air, spectacular views and bush walks. The cottage was lovely - bright, spacious and well equipped - and the wood heater made it very cosy. Breakfast and wine lovely inclusions. I will be back!! - Meredith808

One of the best experiences I have ever had. The cottage was perfect. A great place to be away from all the hectic city life and just wind down. I loved everything about this place and I highly recommend it for everybody. - Adrian

Beautiful stay. The staff at reception were lovely and quick to answer any questions. The cottage was very well stocked and had ample space. However, our main highlight was being in such close proximity to the dozens and dozens of kangaroos that call the grounds home. We’ll be back! - Jason
