VISIT YARRAWA ESTATE

While the Kangaroo Valley region might not be synonymous with wineries, Yarrawa Estate Vineyard makes a case for the opposite.

Yarrawa, or ‘windy place’, is named after a nearby state forest and is tucked between escarpments on the picturesque Scotts Road. Spend the next few hours indulging in a variety of drops at the cellar door. Make your way through whites like verdelho and semillion, followed by some robust reds such as a cabernet sauvignon and cabernet merlot and an elegant rose named Jasmine Grace.
