On this full-day tour, go tobogganing and cross-country skiing (at own expense), take a guided nature walk at majestic Steavenson Waterfalls, and a stop in the Yarra Valley. Youll travel in comfort aboard a deluxe minicoach with complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and marshmallows served at the snow.
