Our Region - The Yarra Valley
The Yarra Valley boasts magnificent scenic landscapes ranging from mountain ranges, rich valley floors, extensive waterway networks, to thick temperate forest interspersed with cultivated croplands and rolling pastures.
The climate, soils, rainfall and proximity to Melbourne markets make the Yarra Valley one of the most intensively farmed areas in Victoria. Agricultural produce from the region includes flowers, nursery plants, berry and orchard fruits, wine grapes, beef and grain.
National and State parks cover much of the region and are famed for their natural appeal and scenic beauty. The area is rich in biodiversity, containing flora and fauna of regional, state and national significance.
Iconic local and international tourist attractions include Healesville Sanctuary, Puffing Billy, Hot Air Ballooning and the fine food and wine establishments of the Yarra Valley region.
