our destination expert
Victoria is Australia's second-smallest state, yet the weather varies immensely across the 227,600 square kilometres, especially in Melbourne, host to some of Australia's most prestigious events throughout the year.
Capital city Melbourne is lauded for its sense of style and elegance, a diverse and lively restaurant and bar scene as well as its scenic location straddling the Yarra River and around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. It is well worth spending a good few days to explore the quirky side of the city, there’s a hidden gem to be discovered in every basement, rooftop and laneway.
Beyond the city, drive out to the Great Ocean Road to tick the one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives off your list – coast through sleepy seaside towns and iconic surf breaks while marvelling at the 12 Apostles. For those who like their vino, escape to the Yarra Valley to indulge in life’s great pleasures of food, wine and nature.
