Victoria Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Victoria

The Amazing Outdoors: Victoria has outstanding national parks. Bushwalking, canoeing, fishing, rafting, and horse riding are all on the menu. If you're pushed for time, there are organized day trips to Port Campbell and the outcrops of the Grampians National Park.

Golden Country: You can still pan for gold—and find it—in rivers about an hour northwest of Melbourne. But the gold rush era’s most attractive remnants are beautiful 19th-century towns constructed from its riches. Walking trails outline the stories of lucky strikes and miners’ fights for justice.

Wonderful Wineries: You'll find hundreds of wineries across the state, particularly in the Yarra Valley, Rutherglen, and on the Mornington Peninsula. Winery tours, departing from Melbourne, are a relaxing way to see four to five wineries in one day.
