Drive an hour east of Melbourne and you'll find yourself in the Yarra Valley; the glorious region surrounding the Yarra River that courses through Victoria out into Port Phillip Bay. Healesville - the setting of this superb escape - has long been considered the heart of the Yarra Valley and offers landscape after landscape of serene Australian natural beauty, over 50 wineries, the renowned Black Spur Road and the awesome Wirrawilla rainforest boardwalk to name a few. Better yet, it's an ideal location to breathe in fresh and crisp country air while sitting back with a great book in front of a crackling log fire.
A stunning haven of quaint English gardens surrounded by towering rainforest, Strathvea Guest House is the only remaining 'Guest House' from the heyday of the Yarra valley Accommodation boom. With modern queen ensuites to heritage listed rooms, Strathvea is perfect for romantic getaways and offers nothing but a stylish and gracious experience for any traveller. Cooking organic whenever possible, Strathvea lets you revel in nothing but fine local flavour from the moment you wake up including homemade jams, preserved fruits and only the freshest eggs served with your two-course daily breakfast.
The Points of Interest
Healesville, just 64kms from Melbourne, is mere moments from Strathvea and is a sweet little hub of funky shops, cafes and delightful dining options. Better yet, rug up warm, pack a picnic and explore the stunning surrounds from the English gardens on your doorstep to the lush foliage of the Dandenong Ranges further afield (about a 45-minute drive away) and everything in between. Don't feel like trekking - don't worry: this area is renowned for its splendid scenic drives, or if you're feeling adventurous, take to the sky with a hot air balloon ride. When safely touched down, head to the Healesville Sanctuary to marvel at over 200 Australian animals.
