The menus! The markets! The merlots! And that’s just starting in the middle of the foodie alphabet. Not only can you pick sun-warm strawberries in the fields, but cooking schools have pooled here: there are cafés acting like restaurants, and wineries acting as temptation. Once you’ve sampled as many drops (and foodie shops) as your tastebuds can feasibly cope with, cosy up at Sanctuary Park Cottages: they’re well reviewed, with plenty of options, and prices start at $185 per night. It goes with the sublime territory that you’ll be wearing elastic by the time you leave, by the way. But we know you’ll forgive us. More info: Visit Yarra Valley
