Yarra
Valley

Ahhh, the Yarra Valley. This region is known for cool-climate sparklings (that rival the finest our French brethren can produce), for languorous lunches and for being a countryside sanctuary for beings both human and beast alike.  

But did you know that the Yarra Valley also has a cracking gin scene to uncover? And ridiculously good chocolate? And a series of craft brews? 

We did. Hop It can take you there.

Salty air and surf-mussed hair. 

That’s the feeling we want to chase on the Mornington Peninsula. We also seek adventures in the epicurean, the revivifying powers of natural spring waters as well as a damn good glass of Pinot Noir around here. 

You can too. Hop It will take you along for the ride.
