Yarra Glen is a town in Victoria, Australia, 40 km north-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges. At the 2006 Census, Yarra Glen had a population of 2598.
The Ryrie brothers (William, James and Donald) were the first Europeans to settle in the area, when they established the 43,000 acres (170 km2) Yering run in 1837 after droving their cattle to the area from NSW. The brothers planted the first grape vines in the Yarra Valley in 1838 and produced their first wine in 1845. Joseph Furphy, often regarded as the father of the Australian novel, was born on the station in 1843.
