Head to the green hills of the Yarra Valley and warm up with a super-luxe hot chocolate
The Yarra Valley Chocolaterie is famous for its month-long festival dedicated to hot chocolate in all its delicious forms. Every single day of August, a new and ever-more ambitious combination of chocolate and milk will be introduced: we're talking chocolate brownie, Nutella and cookies and cream flavours.
If you went along last year, then you'll be pleased to know that some brand new hot chocolates will make an appearance this year, including the Wagon Wheel (which includes a marshmallow and jam chocolate-coated biscuit, ready for dipping), a minty Frogs in a Pond, and the Freckle Fun hot chocolate (pictured).
While you're in the Yarra Valley (which is actually less than an hour's drive from the CBD), why not add on some winery visits? Check out our top Yarra Valley wineries, or if you're more of a beer fan, then consider jumping on the Aussie Brewery Tour of the region.
