It is a beautiful winter day trip to the Yarra Valley, tasting wines, cheeses, and chocolates. Thanks to my new Aussie friend Stu, Lillian, HurricaneCC, and I (the 3 Canadiennes) discover the rural lands of Melbourne.

On our way back, we stop at Lysterfield Park to see some wild kangaroos, hopping happily to the greener side of the pasture.
Note: we also went to Millers Dixon Creek Winery, but I didn’t take any photos. We were greeted by a friendly dog, a mob of cattle, and the owner. Apparently, it is difficult for small wineries like his to export to countries like Canada; The regulations are too strict.
