61km (38 miles) E of Melbourne

Large tracts of the Yarra Valley, one of Melbourne's best wine-growing regions, were affected by bushfires in the summers of 2008 and 2009, but the main attractions remain untouched and visitors are welcomed warmly in the villages, historic houses, gardens, crafts shops, antiques centers, and restaurants that dot the region.
