Where is the Yarra? The Yarra Valley is an easy one hour drive from Melbourne. And although it is pretty difficult to pull yourself away from Melbourne, which is one of the great tourist cities in the world, Melbourne is a great jumping off point to some of the finest wineries and festivals in Australia.
