This hotel is housed within a breathtaking historical homestead constructed of hand-made bricks and exotic hardwoods.

The Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley
At the gateway of Yarra Valley lies The Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley hotel – offering luxury golf resort accommodation amongst breathtaking grounds featuring an exceptional championship golf course, clubhouse and day spa facility – also offering day spa and restaurant services.
Our rooms are large, luxuriously appointed and boast balcon or terraces for unparalleled heritage and friendly unobtrusive service. There are 102 total guestrooms/suites offering only the finest amenities available at our hotel.
This world class hotel features luxurious day spa services, a full recreation centre and swimming pool – and guests can experience sophisticated all day dining at Bella Restaurant on-site.
The Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley is situated conveniently close to popular local attractions like Warrandyte State Park and Neil Douglas Natural Features Reserve, as well as being walking distance away from an array of shopping and dining options.

This resort is an excellent base from which to explore the area, being just a short drive from both the beautiful Yarra River and Yarra Valley wine region.
Though Sebel Heritage may not set new culinary benchmarks with their high tea offering, their rendition is widely appealing and comes at a quality, generosity and price bracket that put other “high tea” offerings of late to shame (MoMo & Coco have participated in many such dismal experiences, which we do not wish to highlight here).
The Sebel Heritage is an ideal option for travelers in search of luxurious accommodation in Melbourne. Easily accessible via shuttle bus service from Melbourne Airport, along with various public transport options nearby making getting around easy.

Yarra Glen is a small town to the north-east of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia located on the Yarra River. Part of the City of Yarra metropolitan area and home to an Australian Rules football team competing in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League, its river is famous for its strong brown hue caused by microscopic clay soil particles entering it from land clearing activities or agricultural developments nearby.
Prior to European settlement, the Yarra Valley was home to dense forests with clear flowing waters. But due to fires in the 19th century that burned much of this vegetation away, the valley eventually transformed into one of Australia’s leading wine production regions.
The Yarra Valley is home to more than 80 vineyards spread out along its picturesque rolling hills, particularly around Lilydale, Coldstream, Yarra Glen and Healesville. Many of these vineyards produce premium wines that have won numerous awards over time.
