The Wandering Wagners Wander to Warburton!

We stayed at the Warburton Motel and couldn’t recommend it more. Richard is friendly, knowledgeable and has made the cutest outdoor area to enjoy. This 1966 motel has been modernized and revamped (and kept impeccably clean) and the small touches everywhere give this place a unique charm. It was also close enough for us to walk into town whenever we wanted and the Yarra River was nearby. We even had a lush green seating area out the back of our room. Have a peek in his awesome campervan on site that looks like it’s ready for an adventure and enjoy a fire to end the day.

The Yarra Valley the @easternburbsliving way

Growing up on the outskirts of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, I have always had a love for this beautiful untapped region I call home. My love for exploring and experiencing new adventures go hand in hand with what this beautiful part of Victoria has to offer.
