This was stop one on our Yarra Valley wine tour, as part of a group of friends that included some reasonably serious wine buffs, and some with a little less interest. The folk behind the counter for our tasting were very friendly, and we enjoyed...More

The only way to get access to behind the towering, ancient hedgerow is to book yourself into the Melba Garden Tour. $25 for a slow meander around the well laid out, private garden. The guide was theatrically emotional about the scattering of horticulture anecdotes she...More

My sister and friends from NZ have celebrated Peach Melba day, in honour of Dame Nellie for 40 years . On this , the anniversary, they would love to all come over from NZ , to visit the place where she lived. It is a fun , grand occasion! A most important part of the celebration every year is to eat Peach Melba and wear pyjamas . There will be 8 of us. The date would be January 2nd. Although this is perhaps, a little unorthodox, it is an extremely important occasion that has never been missed in the whole 40 years. I hope you are open to the idea . Many thanks Lesley

Good afternoon, Thank you for your question, ideally we would like the table back by midday, which should give you sufficient time to enjoy your brunch without being rushed. Regards, Coombe the Melba Estate
