In the vast continent of Australia, Victoria is a small state, yet it is full to the borders with regional delights; big city buzz, tranquil countryside, ocean beaches, national parks and mountainous ski fields. And it is exactly its compact size that creates easy accessibility to the many and varied destinations of Victoria.
Victoria’s capital, Melbourne is set around Port Phillip Bay on the north bank of the mighty Yarra River. The CBD owns a life fantastic with multicultural enclaves producing a melting pot of cultural cuisine.
Atmosphere and service are trademarks of Melbournian restaurateurs and style makes and edgy design are monikers of the fashion trade. Main thoroughfares and tiny archaic laneways alike host elegant boutiques, cozy cafés and trendy bars.
Melbourne’s signature is the contrast of modern architecture and traditional festivals, skyscrapers and elegant Victorian homes, opulent theaters and beautiful parklands.
Federation Square, the newest central public city space expresses Melbourne perfectly, a traditional city with an edgy modern desire, leading the way to a shining future.
The Dandenongs and The Ranges are just beyond the vineyards with huge fern forests, tall trees and ancient mountains ranges. Travel an hour north to the Macedon Ranges where the rejuvenating waters of over 70 mineral springs gives life to a plethora of spas and health centres.
Visit closer to Melbourne. Bellarine and the Mornington Peninsula offer beach resorts and surfing around the waters of Port Phillip Bay.
Wind along the Great Ocean Road that tracks the western coast of Victoria, visit Wilson’s Promontory the southernmost tip of mainland Australia or watch the Little Penguins borrow at sunset on Phillip Island.
Visit Victoria’s famous High Country in the northeast of the State, where winter weather offers the best of Australian skiing at Mount Buller, Mount Hotham and Fall’s Creek. When the snow melts, horse riding and mountain biking in the alpine reaches of Victoria’s highest peaks are national pastimes.
Visit cattlemen huts, photograph wildflowers and walk amongst the snow gums of the Bogong High Plains. Head down the mountains, into the valleys to discover world famous wineries now thriving in heritage that once belonged to rich goldfields.
In these mountains wandered our most beloved legendary Australians. The work of Banjo Paterson was penned amidst the rugged enduring people of Victoria’s high country.
Bushranger Ned Kelly, notorious for his desire to preserve the freedom of the individual citizen, roamed this region and died here, his legacy a standard set for the quintessential Australian character.
Further north, clinging to the border with her northern neighbour, Victoria’s Murray River stretches 2,700 km, skirting the Great Divide on its journey into South Australia. Long before white Australia settled here, the riverland was home to Aboriginal culture that endures today.
