TAHBILK CELLAR DOOR & WINE TASTING: The Cellar Door tasting is a MUST if visiting the winery. Held in the original winery you will be well looked after by our lovely staff as you try a range of different Tahbilk wines on offer. An amazing experience which takes you back in time, unchanged since 1860. UNDERGROUND CELLARS: In Cellar Door, follow the stairs down into the original underground cellars built in 1862. Take a moment to breath in the sights and smells of the red wine cellar before moving to what we call the new cellar which was built by James Escott Purbrick (third cousin to Reginald Purbrick) in 1875 in only 6 weeks. ECO TRAILS: The complex web of billabongs became 8kms of backwaters and creeks. These deep wetlands are the site now of the Tahbilk Eco Trails. Start your walk by heading across the historic Long Bridge. The Long Bridge was built from timber hewn on the Estate to replace a ford on the site soon after the Goulburn Weir was completed in 1889. Following the floods of 1954, the bridge was extensively repaired, reducing from double to single lane. In 1996 it was completely rebuilt, again with timber cut and milled on the property. Visitors can stroll along a range of walking paths and boardwalks along a 4km circuit. ECO CRUISE: Gently glide along the Tahbilk billabongs and enjoy a 30 minute cruise in the undercover comfort of our eco friendly electric powered boats.
