Is the walking difficult?

The pace of the tour is unhurried and with the exception of one, all of the tastings are located on the main street of Healesville and is on flat terrain.

One tasting is held in a property located 5 minutes walk from the main street.  The street has a moderately steep and short hill leading to the property.

Those who may experience difficulty in walking this section of the tour will be accommodated in the accompanying car.

How many tastings?

There is a minimum of seven tastings and each tour may vary slightly from day to day, depending on the availability of the producer due to seasonal and production commitments.

What do I bring and wear?

Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Be prepared for cool and changeable weather in winter and hats are advisable in summer.

The tour will be held in all weathers, so dress appropriately for wet weather and bring umbrellas if necessary.

What can I expect of the tour?

The tastings are all privately arranged for our group.

The tastings are conducted either by the producer, the store-owner or their expert staff.

Some of the tastings provide ‘behind the scenes’ access to the production of the goods.

The itinerary may vary from day to day depending on the seasonal availability of the producers and the demands of their business.

A shopping bag will be provided at the start of the tour.

All products tasted will be available for purchase and we encourage you to purchase your goods as we visit each property, but rather than carry the bags for the entire tour, the shopping bags will be transported separately in the accompanying car.  You can add your purchases to the bag at each stop, but will not have to worry about carrying it!
