Your first stop is a ride on the famous Puffing Billy steam train, which you'll ride from Belgrave to Emerald Lake Park, passing through the glorious Dandenong Ranges along the way. When you arrive at Emerald Lake, enjoy some morning tea while drinking in the picturesque view at the same time. After a quick caffeine hit, take some time for a leisurely walk around the lake before you venture off on the next leg of the tour.

At the Healesville Sanctuary explore at your leisure and meet native animals such as koalas, kangaroos, platypuses, birds of prey, and more. There are also animal education lessons and live shows where you can find out more about Australia's amazing array of animals. If you're feeling hungry, you can purchase your lunch here too.

After a full menu of activities, the final stop is quite literally dessert. You'll journey to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie where you can sample a smattering of delicacies. With a mind full of memories and a stomach full of sweet stuff, you'll ride back to a central Melbourne location.
