HOT CHOCOLATES TO WARM UP THE YARRA VALLEY
The Yarra Valley is getting set to host Australia's most decadent winter event – a Hot Chocolate Festival!
Feel like a weekend getaway or a weekday escape? Let the kids marvel and explore the wonder of the Australian wildlife in a natural zoo setting.
One of the outstanding exhibits has to be the World of the Platypus, where you walk into a darkened room and can get to see the cute marsupial enjoying its underwater environment.
As far as day trips go, this one is as pretty as they come.
Meander through the 'secret' gardens and if you're here at the right time of year (generally first couple of weeks in October) you'll take in the beauty of the arch full of wisteria - magical!
