North East

The north-eastern suburbs of Melbourne has the best of both worlds — the charm of the country, with all of the fun and excitement of the city. Explore the picturesque scenes of Park Orchards, Whittlesea or Kangaroo Ground then have a good Melbourne coffee at a cafe in Eltham or an American-style burger from a burger bar in Doncaster East. There are wineries-a-plenty throughout the Artisan Hills, not to mention Kellybrook Winery in Wonga Park that also offers some top-notch local cider. If fresh produce is what you’re after, don’t forget to check out the fruit farms and specialty grocers of Warrandyte.
