Where to go in Victoria: Melbourne & The Great Ocean Road
List of regions
Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital. A wealth of distinct city precincts - each with a unique character – such as Collins Street, Chinatown, The Greek Quarter, Flinders Quarter and the Yarra Precinct all add to Melbourne’s rich, multicultural heritage.
Victoria’s Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most scenic driving routes, home to the famous 12 Apostles rock formations. The road follows the rocky coast southwest for 243km from Torquay to Allansford.
Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges The Yarra Valley’s wineries launched the state’s wine industry, and at under an hour from Melbourne are still the perfect place to indulge the pleasures of fine food, wine and nature.
The Mornington Peninsula is just an hour from Melbourne and combines the best in coastal living with typical Aussie charm. Hop across the sea to watch penguins on parade on the beaches of Phillip Island.
The Murray is Australia’s mightiest river and marks the border between Victoria and New South Wales before continuing its journey south to the ocean. Hire a houseboat and enjoy the region’s temperate outdoor climate, fishing, bushland forests and some of Victoria’s best golf courses.
