Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne. Please join me with my adventures locally and wherever else my travels take me!

The Noojee Tool Shed is an absolute gem of a pub located in the quiet country town of Noojee. The interior is a hive of memorabilia and antiques from a bygone era.

The Tool Shed's Barmaid informed us that "full bellies are our specialty" and the statement rang true for us on our visit. From the extensive menu, we chose meals which were delicious and did indeed fill our bellies.

Along with a fantastically varied menu, the Tool Shed provides a dedicated "Parma Board" menu of which the Mexican Parma was rated 3rd in Victoria and 1st in Gippsland (Herald Sun, Saturday 28 November 2015).

We stayed overnight at the Outpost Retreat in cosy little cabins which were rustic looking on the outside to match the natural setting, but modern and self-contained inside.
