Yarra Glen is located on the Yarra River just 40km from Melbourne. It is a very scenic town and along Bell Street is the Grand Hotel which was built in 1888 and exists to this day.
Yarra Glen is set amongst the lush countryside of the Yarra Valley and has a number of vineyards where you will find the Chateau Yering. The Chateau was built in 1854 and is now a hotel and dining area.
The Melba Highway takes you north to Dixons Creek and into the De Bortoli Winery. The magnificent winery has a cellar door, restaurant, and landscaped grounds among its 240 hectares of vines.
The Sugarloaf Reservoir has many places for people to BBQ and picnic. There are also several walking tracks along the dam and there are lookouts that give you a great view of the Christmas Hills. The reservoir is located to the west of Yarra Glen.
