Around Oscar's on the Yarra

We are not reopening our restaurant, yet.

We have made the difficult decision to not reopen our restaurant for dining, at this stage. We know how much our guests love having the luxury of an onsite restaurant but we have chosen to support our local cafe and restaurant colleagues so that we all recover together. We’ll offer you great accommodation and send you off with our best recommendations to find some of Warburton and the Yarra Valley’s best dining venues. Breakfast is included in your tariff, as always.

We can also arrange to have a grazing board in your room on arrival for an additional cost, which will save you from having to go out again once you've settled in. It includes grilled and marinated vegetables, olives, cured meats and crackers. (or add local cheese, smoked trout and a baguette) And to really top it off, we stock our favourite local wines too.

Oscar’s recommends…

There are so many great places to visit, trails to trek, wines to drink as well as restaurants to enjoy while you’re staying with us. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite spots on the map below. The blue markers are places to dine, the green are places to visit and the pink are wineries that shouldn’t be missed! Please let us know if you find other places you think we should share.

If you’re venturing out into the wilds, which we absolutely recommend, please be aware of the conditions and restrictions, for your safety. It’s a really good idea to have the Vic Emergency app installed and don’t forget to update your location. Another little tip is to take a screenshot of your map so that if you lose internet coverage while on your adventure, you still have a copy of the map in your photos. (*Apologies to Apple and Mac users, updated map recommendations coming soon!)
