Head off for some much needed time with your girlfriends. We have just the ticket for a one of a kind escape! From rustic eateries and unique Murder Mystery to a day of sampling wine and gin in the Yarra Valley - all within an hour's drive from Melbourne.
The Piggery is a rustic and hearty eatery, making it perfect for lunch and the first stop of the weekend away. With a seasonally rotating menu, food at the Piggery is wholesome, uncomplicated and celebrates the very best of Australian ingredients.
The rustic interior is spacious and accommodating, featuring a bustling takeaway counter of freshly baked goods from our next-door neighbour, Burnham Bakery - a fully organic and biodynamic bakehouse.
Amongst the glamour of the Flapper Era where pearls and feathers, silk bow ties and braces are the fashion, there has been a Murder on the Puffing Billy Express! It promises to take you not only through the forest but to transport you back in time. With its polished wood, elegant upholstery and antique fixtures, the train exemplifies the glamour and elegance of the Golden Age of travel.
Two options present themselves; either self-cater at your accommodation or head out to Sassafras and Olinda for breakfast at one of the local eateries.
After check out, spend the morning exploring the nearby cafes, restaurants and shops of Olinda, Mt Dandenong and Sassafras.
Grab lunch at a cafe before heading to Yarra Valley.
