Victoria’s compact size means you can see and experience so much in any visit to the state, no matter what your length of stay allows. From high in the mountains to the coast and the fabulous city, Victoria caters for everyone. Whether you drive a touring route, follow an itinerary or make your own way around, you’ll be graced with breathtaking landscapes, historic towns to explore and fantastic local food and wine. Australia’s second-largest city and capital of Victoria, stylish Melbourne is known for great festivals, shopping and a passion for food, wine and fabulous arts. Lying directly on the shores of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne is within easy reach of Victoria’s many different attractions. Small compared to some of Australia’s mammoth states, Victoria sure does pack a punch of variety, wilderness, remoteness and urban cityscapes. Visitors choose Victoria exactly for its hybrid of adventure, activities, the great outdoors, coastal beauty, city life and wildlife. Positioned on the tip of the east coast, Victoria offers a profusion of diverse regional areas and attractions from pristine beaches to national parks and forests abundant with wildlife. The geographic extremes of Victoria also nurture a bipolar climate, where windy gales give way to sunny skies all within ﬁve minutes of going out, but this only adds to Victoria’s charm.
