A perfect way to spend a day in the Yarra Valley; this tour combines a trail ride with a gourmet lunch plus wine tasting at one of the region's most popular wineries. First up, you'll meet the horses. Your experienced guide will match you up with a horse suited to your ability and then it's time to saddle up and ride out.

Ride on trails that run through Toolangi State Forest and Paul's range, take in uninterrupted views of the Yarra Valley and Australia's Great Diving Range.

The Estate is widely known within the region and Australia as one of the Yarra's most prestigious wineries.
You'll need some food to soak up that wine, though. That's when it's time to indulge in a 2 course lunch at the winery's restaurant; Locale!
