Immerse in the Yarra Valley is a place to relax, enjoy great food and maybe even pamper yourself. With a restaurant, spa and accommodation on site, Immerse is the perfect place to dine or escape for a weekend away.

Winding your way along Melba Highway, you'll come across Immerse in Dixon's Creek, 46km from Melbourne's CBD.

If you come to dine, Immerse's recently renovated restaurant is comfortable, bright and spacious, with views overlooking the gardens. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on selected days, be sure to check opening hours and book a table before arriving.

The menu boasts locally grown and farmed produce, featuring mouth-watering flavour combinations and matching wines for entrees and mains. Some of the dishes currently featured on the seasonal menu include the black angus sirloin with mac 'n' cheese, field mushroom and caramelised onion, or the slow roasted pork belly.

The tantalising dessert menu is hard to resist, with offerings such as coffee pannacotta with cinnamon donut or the chef-selected assietto tasting plate for two.

Food isn't the only offering at Immerse. Make a day or a weekend of your visit and pamper yourself at the Indulge Spa and Wellness Retreat.

With a huge selection of body treatments, massage, facials, manicures and pedicures, the hardest part is choosing. There are lots of packages on offer as well, including the 'Chocolate Indulgence' (some of it's even edible) and special indulgences for the mum-to-be or bride.

There are lots of other holistic therapies available, including naturopathy, life coaching, tai chi and yoga.

Immerse is a popular place to tie the knot, celebrate a special occasion or host a conference. See the Immerse website for more information about weddings, functions and conferences.

And of course, with those 25-year old vineyards on site, you'd be remiss to depart without a visit to the cellar door. Immerse produces six wines including NV Sparkling Chardonnay, Unwooded Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cab/Merlot and Shiraz Viognier.

At the cellar door you can taste Immerse's wine, buy some to take home and also purchase from a selection of local Yarra Valley Produce.

After indulging in fine food, fine wine and pampering yourself at the spa, you can choose to settle into one of Immerse's 15 rooms for the night.

Choose from a king or queen room or perhaps the Deluxe Bridal Suite for something extra special. Find more details about the accommodation available here.
