Victoria

Bookmark and Share

From rugged coastal cliffs to world-class wineries, breathtaking landscapes to a bustling capital city, Victoria is a great destination for any type of holiday.

Victoria features many diverse regions from Melbourne, to the natural mineral springs area of Daylesford to the famous wine growing region of the Yarra Valley. Read about Victoria's regions below.

Hardware Lane Melbourne

Melbourne and Surrounds
Melbourne and its surrounds are set around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Just 5 kms from the bay, the Melbourne CBD offers something for everyone from fashionable clothing stores to buzzing laneway cafes, elegant Victorian-era architecture to modern skyscrapers, bustling streets to a relaxing seat by the Yarra River.

Visit a gallery, catch a musical, attend the next major sporting event or go shopping. For spectacular city views, head to the Rialto or the Eureka Skydeck.

To enjoy the city from a distance, visit Williamstown. Just 13 kms from Melbourne, Williamstown is a historic maritime town which features waterfront cafes, restaurants and specialty shops.

No visit to Melbourne would be complete without visiting St Kilda. Many people flock to the St Kilda foreshore to skate, cycle or walk along the palm tree lined foreshore. Have a coffee or something to eat in one of the many alfresco cafes.

Yarra Valley Victoria

Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges
Just a short trip from Melbourne, indulge in the Yarra Valley. The Yarra Valley features world-class wineries, spectacular mountain views and a friendly ambience. On the first Sunday of every month, the Healesville Racecourse Harvest and Craft Market offers an array of locally made food and other products.

Close by, the Dandenong Ranges boast spectacular views across the Yarra Valley from Mt Dandenong and a range of towns, each worthy of visiting for their unique shops, cafes and atmosphere. Puffing Billy, a century old steam train, is a popular attraction among kids of all ages.

While in the Yarra Valley, also visit Healesville, Lake Mountain, Marysville, Olinda and Warburton.

Mornington Victoria

Mornington Peninsula
Driving along the coastline of the Mornington Peninsula, you'll think you've travelled far away from the city. However, just an hour or two from the Melbourne CBD, the Peninsula is a popular destination with great beaches easily accessible on Port Phillip Bay, Western Port Bay and Bass Strait.

The Mornington Peninsula also features 50 wineries open for cellar door sales, many with restaurants set in beautifully landscaped gardens or on terraces overlooking the vines. Towns in this region range from Frankston, to Mornington, Sorrento, Rosebud and Flinders, across to French Island.

Being close to the bay, also makes the Mornington Peninsula ideal for every type of water sport you could wish for, including scuba diving, fishing and sea kayaking.

Daylesford Victoria

Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges
One hour north-west of Melbourne, Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges is renowned for its thriving arts and crafts community and award winning food and wine.

Home to the largest concentration of naturally occurring mineral springs in Australia, the Daylesford and Hepburn Springs area is a great place to relax with many spas and massage therapists. There are also great places to eat with much of the food served, locally grown.

In nearby Macedon Ranges, see the impressive mansions and some of Victoria's finest gardens. Visit the legendary Hanging Rock, the spooky backdrop to the book and the film of the same name.

Phillip Island

Phillip Island
Phillip Island is located 150 kms south-east of Melbourne. Accessible by car via San Remo, Phillip Island is a popular beach holiday destination which comes alive with activity in the warmer months. Take a stroll down the main street stopping to browse in the shops or for a bite to eat in one of the cafes or restaurants.

Phillip Island is best known for its Penguin Parade and seal colony, The Nobbies. It is also the home of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix every October.

Great Ocean Road Victoria

Great Ocean Road
Hugging tightly to the coast, the Great Ocean Road offers spectacular views of rugged cliffs facing out to Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. From Torquay to Allansford (near Warrnambool), travel the 243 kms along this magnificent trail along the coast of Victoria.

As you travel, stop into one or more of the 100 towns along the Great Ocean Road or simply pull over at one of the vantage points to absorb the magnificent beauty of coastal Victoria. Towns in the Great Ocean Road region include Geelong, Queenscliff, Torquay, Lorne, Colac, Apollo Bay, Port Campbell, Warrnambool, Port Fairy and Portland.

Highlights along the Great Ocean Road include waterfalls, the Twelve Apostles, Cape Otway and Bells Beach.

Skiing In Victoria

High Country
Located in north-east Victoria, the High Country features scenic alpine landscapes, abundant outdoor activities, gourmet food and wine and a captivating history of bushrangers and gold.

See the tree-lined streets and cafe culture of Bright or visit one of the acclaimed wineries in Rutherglen. Explore the place of Ned Kelly's final siege in Glenrowan or the fascinating historical architecture of Beechworth.

The High Country is home to Victoria's best snowfields include Mt Buller, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek. In the warmer months, the area remains popular for a range of outdoor activities which include four-wheel driving, mountain biking, horse riding and hiking.

Gippsland Bush Victoria

Gippsland
Gippsland covers a large rural region of Victoria, stretching from the east of Melbourne to the coast of Victoria and all the way to the New South Wales border.

Rising from sea level at Bairnsdale to Victoria's highest peaks of Mt Bogong and Mt Feathertop the Great Alpine Road tours through forests and national parks.

Get back to nature at the southern most point of mainland Australia, Wilson's Promontory. Enjoy the secluded beaches, cool fern gullies and spectacular views. Other places to visit in this region include Gippsland Lakes, Inverloch, Lakes Entrance, Mallacoota, Metung, Mt Baw Baw, Omeo, Paynesville, Port Albert, Sale, Traralgon, Walhalla, Wonthaggi and Yarragon.

Murray River Victoria

The Murray
Meandering its way through picturesque townships and rolling countryside of Victoria and New South Wales, the Murray River is a great place to explore and relax.

Visit the fruit growing region of Mildura, explore colonial history at Swan Hill or take a relaxing ride on a paddle steamer as you take in the natural beauty of the mighty Murray River. Go fishing at Lake Mulwala or enjoy the large regional cities of Albury and Wodonga.
