The Yarra Valley is a vibrant arts precinct where you could find yourself in the home studio of a local artist during 'Open Studios', being awe struck by the beauty and depth of our history and heritage in the museums, expanding yourself in an artist lead workshop or experiencing internationally acclaimed music in one of our many cultural centres. Wander the exhibitions at the acclaimed Tarrawarra Museum of Art and browse the selection of local artisan products in their retail nook.
