Escape to the wine-filled countryside of the Yarra Valley with a stay at the elegant Chateau Yering Hotel. Occupying an 18th-century Victorian house and gardens, this heritage-listed hotel is perched between vineyards and valleys, offering a charming country retreat just minutes from some of the region’s finest cellar doors. In fact, Victoria's oldest vineyard, Yering Station Winery, is located just next door. It’s not all about wine though – the Eastern Golf Club, designed by Greg Norman, is a short drive away, while Healesville Sanctuary is just 20 minutes down the road.
Embrace the old-world charm of Chateau Yering's expansive suites, where Australian and European antiquities and fine art combine with modern facilities for a relaxing stay. Common areas share the same approach – while away the day in the cosy library or pop in for a meal at Eleonore’s, where French and Australian dishes are served in a grand Victorian-style dining hall. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at Sweetwater Cafe or, should you be visiting on the weekend, book in for traditional high tea in the Drawing Room, complete with ribbon sandwiches and sensational scones. Spend a sunny day exploring the heritage-listed gardens, designed by Baron von Mueller, the force behind Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens, or beat the heat with a dip in the petite swimming pool.
Yering Suite Upgrade: For a true dose of history, opt for the Yering Suite, the only guestroom to occupy the hotel’s original building.
