Yarra Valley: Enjoy a Melbourne icon before your trip to the airport

Yarra Valley surrounds the Yarra River, not far from Melbourne. It is known as a premier wine region, with conditions that allow chardonnay, pinot noir, and sparkling wines to flourish. The cool, temperate climate combine with the abundant waters of the Yarra Valley to support healthy grapes. That’s why Yarra Valley wines are known worldwide. In fact, the first Yarra Valley vineyard was established in the first half of the nineteenth century! After that long, it’s no surprise Yarra Valley wines are so finely honed. However, the Yarra Valley covers some ground. If you want to see the most of it, you’ll need reliable transport. And with Hughes, that’s what you get! We can take you from Melbourne Airport to anywhere in the Yarra Valley – and back!
