A special treat in the Yarra Valley

Not only is the Yarra Valley one of the most beautiful wine regions in Australia; it is only just one hour from Melbourne if the traffic is kind. 

Chateau Yering is an elegant and historic property in a heritage-listed Victorian mansion on 250 acres bordering the Yarra River and is surrounded by beautiful gardens dating back to 1854.
Etremely elegant and upmarket, it has been a luxury hotel since 1997 and is the ideal venue for a romantic weekend or for anyone planning to explore the many highlights of the Yarra Valley and its cellar doors.

There are just 32 suites in all, giving the property a country house ambiance, and all are spacious and well appointed. 

Chef Mathew MacCartney is cooking some impressive dishes at the award-winning Eleonore’s restaurant, where the service is impeccable. Sweetwater CafĂ© offers more casual food.

Alternatively, relax in front of an open fire with a glass of Yarra pinot.

Right next door is Yering Station, one of the Yarra’s finest wineries and cellar doors, which is open seven days a week. 

On Saturday, July 13, Chateau Yering is hosting a special truffle weekend at a cost of $1055 per couple. That includes luxury accommodation in a river suite, a truffle hunt adventure, a six-course truffle dinner matched with Pommery Champagnes and breakfast on the Sunday morning.  For details contact the events department.
