Little River Wines of Taggerty

Estate Vineyard, 20 Sharrock Court, Taggerty VIC 3714
In the secluded Little River valley in Taggerty, in a park like setting below the majestic Cathedral Ranges, Philip and Christine Challen established a vineyard in 1986. Subsequently they have been making low volume still and sparkling wines based on strict permaculture and organic principles. In an era of globalisation and the acquisition of smaller brands by multinational corporations, to visit the vineyard, taste the individual character of the wines and discuss the craft of winemaking with the makers is an experience to be savoured. There is nothing the owners enjoy more than to share the fruits of their labours and welcome visitors to Little River Wines of Taggerty. Please call or email to arrange a personal invitation to experience handcrafted wines of quality, distinction and value at a time that suits you.

Cathedral Range State Park

Cathedral, Taggerty VIC 3714
The Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges region is home to some of Victoria's most impressive tall forests. Once logged to make masts for ships, the area is now a haven for lyrebirds, and a great place to walk, cycle, picnic or sit and relax. Follow the many walks and trails through stands of towering 100 metre high mountain ash, undulating seas of tree ferns, across clear gushing streams and past thundering waterfalls. And for those not keen to leave the comfort of their car, some of the best scenery is accessible by road too. The Cathedral Range is a spectacular 7 km ridge of sharply upturned sedimentary rock. A variety of walking tracks offer the opportunity to climb the peaks and enjoy views of the forests and farmland in the valley below. Things to do - The park is ideal for bushwalking, rock climbing, fishing and camping. - Walking tracks lead to all the major features of the park and range in difficulty from an easy walk along the Little River between Neds Gully and Cooks Mill to the very challenging, steep walk between Sugarloaf Saddle and Sugarloaf Peak which involves climbing up rock faces Before you go Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website. Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.
