Looking for a family-friendly experience in the Yarra Valley that the whole family can enjoy? Step back into time at Mont De Lancey and experience the Draught Horse and Yesteryear Festival 2018.

It's as you've imagined it. Majestic draught horses ploughing the fields, blacksmiths clanging and forging their metalworks, and working dogs rounding up sheep - all with the sound of a distant whip cracking. This is Mont De Lancey, a beautiful 1880's historic homestead.

Located just an hours drive from Melbourne, Mont De Lancey is a beautiful 80-acre historic homestead nestled between the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. You will discover stunning gardens, a 1920's chapel, a blacksmiths shop, museum and the historic household, as well as friendly historic locals!

As you start your adventure around the property you will be captivated by award-winning chainsaw carvings, vintage cars and tractors, antique hand tools and professional woodturners creating beautiful timber objects. Step inside the museum and take in the amazing Meccano exhibition, needlework and tapestry demonstrations on beautiful dolls.

In between all the action, take some time-out and fill-up at the food stalls while the kids enjoy a donkey ride or some air-time on the jumping castle.
