Warratina Lavender Farm is situated one hour from Melbourne at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, in the beautiful Yarra Valley.
A family business run by Annemarie and Peter Manders, Warratina takes pride in producing home-grown lavender products.
Warratina boasts acres of lavender where visitors are invited to stroll along the different rows of species, breathe the fresh country air, and enjoy the display gardens and views of distant hills across the Yarra Ranges.
Refreshments and a selection of products are available from the gift store in the Lavender Cottage Tea Rooms.
Families and groups are welcome to enjoy the picnic areas and disabled facilities are provided with available coach parking near all facilities.

History of the area
The area is called Wandin Yallock – ‘Wandin’ being the name of the local Aboriginal tribe and ‘Yallock’ meaning permanent running water. The site of the original township was originally designed to be close to the farm however the railway line from Lilydale to Warburton was laid some 2km from Wandin Yallock and so the township grew and developed closer to the station.
This became the town of Wandin North. Today Wandin Yallock consists of a primary school, a church, war memorial, and a number of farms (most of which are orchards).
