Opening cellar doors faster than you can say "move over Magners", Victoria's boutique cideries are producing an outstanding range of craft ciders made from local fruit. Breweries and wineries are joining in too, releasing their own labels, so wherever you are, you're never far from a good brew. Follow a tour or trail, stop in for a tasting or sign up to a masterclass. Victoria's cideries are yours to explore.
Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges
Discover the region's signature champagne cider at Kelly Brothers and St Ronan's Cider, and small-batch ciders from estate-grown fruit at Napoleone Brewery and Ciderhouse. Follow the Yarra Valley Cider & Ale Trail for a sample of the region's best.
Head to the Tin Shed for traditionally crafted still and sparkling ciders and to Amulet Winery for the brag-worthy Beechworth Cider.
Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges
Tip your hat to Old Blighty and enjoy English-style ciders at the tavern and cellar door at Daylesford Cider Company.
Geelong and the Bellarine
Enjoy tasting paddles of the Bellarine's best made at the Flying Brick Cider House. The retro-styled venue has guided tastings, live music on Fridays and no sign of flying bricks.
Make your way straight to the region's apple capital, Harcourt. Home to not one but three cideries – Bress, Henry of Harcourt and Harcourt Perry & Cider Makers – it's a cider trail all of its own.
