Some of Victoria’s most enticing experiences are within just a few hours’ drive of Melbourne. Look to the south for a peninsula producing tasty tipples and delicious foods and an island speckled with little penguins, or head west for incredible mountain landscapes and one of the world’s most famous coastal drives. Victoria’s largest coastal wilderness area can be found to the east, and snow-capped ski slopes to the north. Whichever direction you turn, Victoria will serve up something unforgettable.
From world-famous food and drinks to relaxed spa country, Victoria is all about the good things in life. Ignite your taste buds in Melbourne, with the flavours of freshly brewed coffee, local produce and award-winning gins. The cultural attractions are countless, with Melbourne playing host to some of the country’s best art galleries, events and Aboriginal experiences. Further afield, Victoria’s regions are both beautiful and diverse. See fur seals, koalas and little penguins in their natural habitats on Phillip Island, sink into steamy mineral springs on the Mornington Peninsula, get your heart pumping on a breathtaking hike in Gippsland, or camp, fish and marvel your way through the sprawling ridges of the Grampians National Park. Bringing together sophistication and striking scenery, Victoria is a destination ticking all the boxes.
