Itinerary 1 - Time to step up
Begin with pickup from Melbourne city and then hit the road for the 1000 steps, which is one of the top things to do in Melbourne if fitness is your forte. Don’t count them, just conquer them. If you do it fast enough, the record could be yours. While in the area you’ll receive a rundown of its unique history as the operator likes to keep you mentally fit too.
Itinerary 2 - On your bike
Prepare to hit the highest highs as well as the lowest lows, geographically speaking of course, as you travel from the mountains to the valley. Here you'll pick up your bikes for a ride along the purpose built bike trail. Take it from the tour operator, your eyes will be working just as hard as your legs to take in the stunning area.
Itinerary 3 - Putting the ahhh in afternoon
With the hard yards done and dusted, it’s time to treat yourself and when you’re surrounded by some of the best food, wine, and scenery in Victoria, it’s not like you need an excuse to indulge. Let your guide know if there are any particular Yarra Valley wineries you’d like to explore and they’ll do what they can to get you there.
