Victoria

The state of Victoria can truly be said to offer something for everyone. A trip along the Great Ocean Road offers some of the most majestic coastal scenery to be found anywhere, while winemaking also proves to be a top attraction in places such as the Yarra Valley. But perhaps Victoria’s top attraction is the simultaneously eclectic and cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. Australia’s second-largest city, the capital of Australia’s “Garden State” and equally as cosmopolitan as its northern neighbor Sydney, Melbourne is a surprising blend of European elegance and new-world style.

Victoria’s comprehensive road network makes seeing the region’s diverse sights a breeze to navigate. Recently voted one of the world’s most beautiful drives, a favorite stretch of blacktop is the famed Great Ocean Road, which winds its way for 106km, hugging Victoria’s dramatic coastline. A short trip to Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula is rewarded with magnificent coastal views, luxurious European-style country retreats and a plethora of activities; from a variety of water sports and golfing options, to wine tasting, antiquing and wandering lively markets and grand gardens.
