Horses, beer, wine... It sounds like a day at the races! This tour will see you winding your way through some of Victoria's finest countryside, visiting the Living Legends of racing at Woodlands Estate, enjoying fine wine and lunch in Gisborne and trying a range of cold beer in beautiful Woodend.
Start your day with Devonshire Tea before exploring the Woodlands Homestead and Museum and heading outside to take a guided tour of Living Legends. This is home to some favourite retired champion race horses such as Might and Power, Better Loosen Up, Rogan Josh, Apache Cat, Brew, Paris Lane, Efficient and Who Shot The Barman (NZ). On the tour you will get to meet, pat and feed the horses and hopefully see some local kangaroos in the wild.
Next stop is a wood-fired pizza lunch and wine tastings at the Gisborne Peak Winery, located within the Macedon Ranges wine region, a recognised cool climate wine growing region.
Your last stop of the day is Holgate Brewery, a country pub with a range of classic beer styles, full in flavour and rich in character. Staff will lead you through tasting the range of beers on offer before showing you the onsite microbrewery. Enjoy some free time with a walk around beautiful historic Woodend, or sit by the fire with another brew.
