While the Yarra Valley is a little far from Melbourne, there are lots of ways to get there. It’s fairly easy to travel by car, and many routes are available for you to take– from quick and easy, to long and scenic. Car rentals are available as well.  Another option is to hire a transport service, and it’ll only take a quick search to find an offer. And while getting there by public transportation might be a little tricky, there are still trains that can get you to Hurstbridge, Lilydale, or Belgrave. 



Check The Weather

Since many of the adventures you’re going to take in the Yarra Valley are outdoors, it’ll be a huge bummer if it starts to rain while you’re there. To make sure you don’t experience this nightmare, check out the weather forecasts of the day you want to go there before making any further plans. It only takes a second to do, and it’ll save you a lot of time and tears, too!
