The Nature & Historic Pub Tour

The Nature & Historic Pub Tour

Experience the peaceful beauty of the Yarra River at Warburton and a local favourite for lunch – the Aussie “Pot & Parma”

You’re in Australia – go on, live dangerously! Of the world's ten most poisonous snakes, all are Australian. Five of our creatures - the funnel web spider, box jellyfish, blue-ringed octopus, paralysis tick, and stonefish - are the most lethal of their type in the world.

This is a country where even the fluffiest of caterpillars can lay you out with a toxic nip. The good news – we will NOT encounter any of these on our leisurely river walk in Warburton. We will head into to the Upper Yarra region for lunch in one of the oldest pubs in the area. Sample an Aussie beer, or two, and enjoy a traditional pub lunch.

Itinerary

  • Venture through scenic terrain of farmlands, vineyards and forests with time for morning tea
  • Relax as we drive along the Warburton Highway, with breathtaking views of Mount Toolebewong and Mount Donna Buang
  • Lunch at a stunning heritage listed “Aussie Pub” – rich in character and history which has been standing on its current site for nearly 140 years. Enjoy a delicious meal, “on tap” craft beers and local Yarra Valley wines
  • Wander through the town of Warburton with time to visit The Waterwheel, Silva Speciality Coffee Roastery, The Warburton Bakery & Pie Shop, local retailers featuring gorgeous handcrafts and a produce store with gourmet jams, jellies, chutneys & relishes
  • Stay caffeinated and sample a coffee tasting flight at Silva Coffee Roasters
  • Alternatively, if you prefer to immerse yourself in nature after lunch, we can take a short walk along the riverside at Warburton, criss-crossing the Yarra River taking in views of Mt Little Joe and Mt Victoria / or visit the Redwood Forest – you might be lucky and see the Grey Headed Flying Fox roost in the canopy during summer and we will see a variety of local birdlife.
