Upper Yarra

Upper Yarra

Located just 3km from Melbourne, “heading for the hills” of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges is popular with locals and tourists. With rich soil and an agreeable climate, many European immigrants settled in the region during the 19th century, creating what became known as “the food bowl of Victoria”. Many of these original farms and gardens are still productive today. For more than a century, the area has attracted artists, nature lovers, and foodies seeking solitude, inspiration, and pure indulgence. The romance of days gone by comes alive with a nostalgic ride through the Dandenong Ranges on the century-old steam train – Puffing Billy. Considered one of the best steam trains in the world, it runs every day of the year (except Christmas Day) along a 40km track under the steam of a large team of volunteers. Traveling from Belgrave to Gembrook, the train chugs through towering indigenous eucalyptus forests featuring the magnificent mountain ash trees, over historic wooden bridges, and through quaint villages. With open air carriages, the heady scent of eucalyptus adds another dimension to this popular tourist attraction.
