There is so much to see and do in Victoria. Giant rivers with paddle steamers at Echuca to the north, snow covered mountains in the winter, vineyards, coastal cliffs, surf beaches, gold mining towns…it’s all here.

Wake up to the distinctive bird sounds and smell the eucalyptus oils. An hour north of Melbourne is the unusual landmark of Hanging Rock. Follow the winding trail upwards to the unusual geographical formation, a previous volcano. Great views from the top and you may see a koala in a gum tree. Or head eastwards to the Yarra Valley. See delightful villages nestled between rolling hills and eucalyptus forest. Home to over 80 local vineyards and several breweries. Best to spend the night here and enjoy the wine!

Have an adventure in Victoria.
One of the most epic drives in Australia; The Great Ocean Road. Hire a campervan, drive or join a tour to explore this magnificent and unique region of Victoria. The route starts west of Melbourne. Stop off and gaze at Bells Beach of Point Break fame. Grab lunch next to the beach in the chilled out surf town of Lorne. Check out the ‘Round the Twist’ lighthouse at Aireys Inlet. Camp up and you will probably see a mob of kangaroo’s with one standing sentry.
The rock formations and beaches along the Great Ocean Road are magical. The route is most famous for the 12 Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks. Nearby is Loch Ard Gorge, a beautiful spot with a sad shipwreck history.

Spend a couple of nights in Port Fairy, a delightful artistic coastal village. Walk to the lighthouse on Griffiths Island and you will see black tailed wallabies bouncing around. Right at the edge of Victoria is the small town of Nelson. Hire a small boat and sail up the Glenelg river.
Inland are the gold mining towns of Ballarat, Bendigo and Maldon. Sovereign Hill at Ballarat is a must do, an example of a gold-rush town and try your hand at panning for gold. The grand architecture in these beautiful old gold mining towns is stunning. Catch a steam train from Maldon to Castlemaine to feel in the heart of the countryside.
If you want to get away from it all drive to Wilson’s Prom. This prom once formed part of an ancient land bridge to Tasmania. Amazing starlight skies, networks of hiking tracks and sand dunes, white beaches. Walk across the famed squeaky beach. You will see why it has that name!
