The Yarra Valley has a rich brewing history and it's celebrating with a new beer and cider festival at Healesville Sanctuary over the Melbourne Cup long weekend from 11am to 4pm each day, 3-6 November (4 days) 2018. Hop Fest ticket includes entry to Healesville Sanctuary and a souvenir Hop Fest picnic glass which is your ticket to tasting, so get them NOW. Your tickets help fight wildlife extinction as all proceeds from the Hop Fest will support Zoos Victoria's efforts to save the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby from extinction. Download your Hop Fest map and program here. Live music will be running at both the Ellim Atta Gathering Place and the Koala Picnic Lawn.

If four days of celebrations with the Yarra Valley's best beer brewers and small batch cider makers sounds like heaven to you, Hop Over like a Wallaby to meet the makers, sample one or a few brews of a diverse range of beer and cider. A selection of gourmet-style street food including pulled pork and jackfruit tacos, steamed corn with harissa butter, salt and pepper squid, freshly baked soft pretzels and sticky ribs with hot sauce will also be available. Keepers will be out and about to say hello with furry, feathered and scaly friends, so sit back, relax and enjoy a great live music lineup of local musos and bands.

With limited parking and enforced restrictions, you're encouraged to use public transport. Why not get the train to Lilydale Station and from there you can book a return shuttle bus to the Sanctuary for just $5. The bus will be running between the station and the sanctuary every half hour from 10am till 4.30pm. Get your shuttle bus tickets here.
