Home to the beautiful Blue Dandenong Ranges are colourful native birds, fern gullies and tall mountain ash eucalyptus. While you are there, look for Kookaburras, Crimson Rosellas, and Cockatoos and of course, the elusive Lyrebird. Tour through quaint mountain villages noted for their restaurants and craft shops. Then continue to the Tesselaar Tulip Festival for the wonderful experience. Some of the highlights of the festival are horse and carriage rides most days, pick your own tulips, fresh flowers for sale, summer flowering bulbs and perennial plants for sale and Dutch souvenirs (own expense).
Light lunches and wine are also available at additional cost. Thereafter, proceed to Yarra Valley a noted wine producing region and visit some of the wineries, where you can taste fine wines. Return back to Melbourne city around 5pm.
