So come and learn about beer and cider making by taking a brewery tour in the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, or Melbourne CBD.
Brewery Tours Melbourne – Wine, Beer & Cider Bus Day ToursA brewery tour in the Melbourne CBD run both day and night, so they suit every schedule.

There will also be some wine on offer for those who love a drop of delicious Aussie wines. Lunch is generally included, but check your individual tour for inclusions.
