Yarra Ranges Two Day 4WD Glamping Tour & Gourmet Dining Experience March 21st

Serving 1 Hi

Starting from the township of Gembrook we wind our way through the hills up to the spectacular lookout at Seven Acre Rock and through the lush subtropical rainforest surrounding one of Victoria's tallest trees, The Ada Tree.  

Your choice of freshly cooked gourmet food will await you when we break for lunch at the historic mill site Starlings Gap, a unique location as you can see the meeting points of the three main forest types of the region.

Pushing further into the forest we'll explore some of the fun and challenging tracks on offer with many opportunities to learn the basics of driving off-road. Venturing further north we will climp to the top of Smoko Ridge Track, then drop down to the bottom of the valley to explore the Upper Yarra Reservoir before arriving at our basecamp for a delicious two course dinner and complimentary glass of wine.

If you've selected one of our Glamping Packages you will enjoy a relaxing nights sleep in a luxurious canvas bell tent, or alternatively you may select the Dining Package and bring your own tent or camping trailer.  

Wake up to freshly ground espresso coffee, and let us spoil you with a delectable selection of breakfast options before we set out for the day.  Today we will be cricumnavigating Upper Yarra Reservoir catchment area taking in Loch Valley the source of the Yarra. After lunch we'll head up the other side of the valley towards the Reefton Spur for a some more off-road adventures. 

The tour will conclude at around 5pm in the town of East Warburton, an easy one hour drive from Melbourne.
