    What to Expect
    Indulge your taste buds and your inner jockey with this unique full-day tour. After morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel or Federation Square, relax on the drive to Woodlands Historic Park, home to the Living Legends stables. Here, you’ll have a chance to meet some of Australia’s most beloved racehorse champions, including winners of the world-famous Melbourne Cup. Retired equine residents include Silent Witness, Rogan Josh, Paris Lane, Fields of Omagh, Apache Cat and Better Loosen Up.

    Stop in at the park’s 150-year-old homestead for morning tea. Enjoy a teatime view of lovely gardens and parklands, where you may spot native kangaroos hopping by.

    Make your way to the beautiful Macedon Ranges wine region for a visit to the Gisborne Peak Estate winery. Taste the rieslings, chardonnays and semillons of this award-winning, family-run winery and savor a lunch of gourmet wood-fired pizza served with gorgeous mountain and vineyard views.

    Your final stop is the Holgate Brewery, a classic Aussie pub that boasts the 2008 award for Best Beer Brewed in Victoria. Sample several different craft beers while soaking up the country ambience or lounging in the beer garden, and then relax on the return drive to Melbourne.

    My wife and I did this tour yesterday and thought it was fantastic. The scones for morning tea at Woodlands Homestead were fabulous. It was wonderful to see the "Living Legends" looking so content in their retirement. Our host Tamara did a fantastic job and made the day for us.
