Melbourne


Not only is Melbourne laid back and bohemian, featuring many restaurants and shops, but it is also visually appealing. The glistening skyline and surrounding country make for some views that you will not soon forget. If you don’t think of urban environments as gorgeous, then you obviously haven’t been here. Consistently voted one of the world’s most livable cities, no journey through Victoria is complete without stopping through Melbourne.


The Great Ocean Road


Victoria is known for its long, winding coastline of crashing waves, rock formations, and completely epic views. You can experience a large expanse of the coast by driving the Great Ocean Road which runs all the way from the rock cliffs of the 12 Apostles to the border of South Australia. You will see amazing views of the Southern Ocean, from the golden beaches to the funky surfer hamlets to scenic coastal towns featuring great eats and a laid back beach culture. This is like America’s Highway 101 on steroids, so make sure this is on your list. The Great Ocean Road is an absolute must.


Phillip Island


On the famous Phillip island you will see a wide array of local wildlife that will truly take your breath away. Here you can witness penguins, fur seals, and koalas in their native environments. Not only this, but you can also check out the amazing wild beaches and surrounding marshes. This mixture of exotic wildlife, beautiful scenery, and prime hiking possibilities makes Phillip Island a definite must-do for anybody traveling in Victoria.

When it comes to sheer possibilities, this destination takes the crown in Victoria.


Spa Country
