The Maroondah Highway between Lilydale and Healesville is surrounded by vineyards, wineries and mountains. The Healesville Sanctuary is also one of Australia’s leading native wildlife experiences. Farming and timber production were some of Healesville's first industries, while the arrival of the railway in 1889 transforming the town into a tourist destination. The town is surrounded by mountains, forests and rolling hills dotted with wineries, fruit and berry farms.

The Healesville Sanctuary opened in 1934 and is a non-for-profit organisation that preserves Australia’s endangered wildlife and is home to more than 200 species. They include the Platypus, Wombat, Koala and also a wide range of birds and reptile species including the Eastern Bearded Dragon and the Black Headed Python.

Travelling long distance, passengers require comfort and the knowledge that they are travelling safely and promptly. A professional Charter Company can enhance any winery tour and ensure clients enjoy the entire experience.

Visitors can find smaller, family owned wineries on the Warburton Road, branching off the main highway with other attractions including Mont De Lancey Homestead, Warratina Lavender Farm and gardens dating back to the 1880s.

At Mont de Lancey visitors have a chance to step back 100 years in time. The museum is a treasure trove of artefacts illustrating pioneer life including family records, furniture, kitchen equipment, farm equipment and a large blacksmiths forge where enthusiasts can learn to work with traditional methods and implements.

A fragrant alternative from pioneer life or wineries lies at the foothills of Mount Dandenong. It is only one hour’s drive from Melbourne. The Warratina Lavender Farm had its beginnings in 1991 with a small lavender plot and now has now has over 10,000 lavender plants. The lavender grown on the farm is used in cooking, craft and household purposes. The lavender is harvested by hand using a traditional sickle.
