Still in the Yarra Valley

Moving on from the Chocolate Factory. We dropped our DS#2 and his Overseas Guest at Healesville Sanctuary for the next few hours.

While they enjoyed encounters with Aussie Wildlife, DH and I did a little touring on our own.

The Yarra Valley has a lot to offer, however for us, the Wineries hold little interest and it is still Winter so the Orchards are closed. You start to wonder what else is left.
But then it IS dairy country and the Yarra Valley Dairy was open and samples were to be tasted.

A little further down the road another farm gate sign brought us to The Big Bouquet.

This is a modern working Cut Flower Farm where you can learn all there is about growing Gerberas.

And when we'd had enough of flowers we said "Hello" to the resident herd of Alpacas and headed off for a wonderful Coffee and friendly chat with the staff, while trying (unsuccessfully) to ignore the awesome Alpaca garments, rugs and wool in the gift shop.
