The best of the lucky country
We are truly lucky in Victoria, visiting so many stunning places close to Melbourne – from the Yarra Valley to the Dandenongs, Healesville to Toolangi – everywhere we take you on our small group bus tours, there’s a postcard picture moment. And with guaranteed small group sizes, there’s more room to relax and catch those great views. You’ll never get lost in a crowd or stuck at the back of a queue!
Our organised Dandenongs & Yarra Valley day tours put our guests first. And our small group sizes allow a more personalised trip. We minimise the time you spend on the bus to maximise your experiences of the amazing places we’ll take you on your Melbourne day trip. So you can sit back and relax, and really enjoy yourself.
Delightful surprises frequently happen on Leadbeater Eco Tours. And the best moments are often enchantingly unexpected. Like suddenly looking up to see a giant 300 year old tree. Or catching a special lucky glimpse of a glorious native lyrebird as it darts across the forest. Or learning about the remarkable work carried out at Healesville Sanctuary. Or just kicking back to relax and enjoy the magnificent views.
Eco Tours that don’t cost the earth
Enjoy amazing wildlife, story book villages, towering forests, misty mountains and a ride on Puffing Billy, Australia’s premiere century-old steam train with Melbourne’s newest day tours, Leadbeater Eco Tours. We specialise in small group day tours from Melbourne to the Yarra Valley and Dandenongs.
Our name Leadbeater Eco Tours celebrates the unique state emblem of Victoria, the endangered Leadbeater’s Possum because, like our small but significant friend: We’re one-of-a-kind, have a light footprint and can only be found in Victoria.
