Guided tours of the Edible Forest

Our Edible Forest is nothing like you would have experienced before-over 850 plants that are grown either for edible or medicinal purposes, planted within a one acre forest garden that supplies edible produce every day of the year.

Be guided by one of the team at Yarra Valley Estate who lovingly created the space, learn the health benefits and reasons why individual plants were selected as you meander through the 6 different areas including tea, wetlands, bush tucker, sensory, berry & woodlands.

A hosted 'Tour & Taste' offers you the experience to learn as you taste the harvest, ask questions along the way and an opportunity to find out what you can grow in your own home garden.

Tours run daily Monday - Saturday at 10am and 12pm Saturdays. Bookings are essential.  More Info »
