Earlier this month I posted about Adrenalin’s #ShareAnExperience campaign and was pretty excited that I was being sent to the Yarra Valley to try out the segway experience that Adrenalin offers on their gift experience website.
The experience took place at the Rochford Winery in the Yarra Valley and my friend Katie and I stayed at the Yarra Valley Lodge (about 20 minutes from the Rochford Winery). We first arrived at Rochford and were greeted by such lovely wait staff, we had lunch in the award winning Rochford Restaurant surrounded by their picturesque vineyards. Once we had finished our meals it was time to begin our segway experience, I wasn’t too sure what to expect however this experience was SO much fun!
I couldn’t speak more highly of our segway instructor, Andrew, he was so patient with us all (it takes a little bit to get used to how the segways work and get going on them!). Once we were confident enough on the segways it was time to venture around the winery and around a few obstacles set along the tracks. Overall the segway tour ran for about 90 minutes and by the time we were finished we were ready to go and try out some (or all!) of the wine we learnt about.
The whole weekend was so amazing, I would highly recommend heading out the Rochford in the Yarra Valley and having a go at their segway tour, I would love to go back with a big group of girlfriends and do a winery pub-crawl around the area – there were SO many great breweries and wineries around (Chandon was just up the road!).
