All about Victoria

When to visit

Summers in Victoria can get sweltering, with temperatures known to exceed 104°F (40°C), but that makes this the perfect time to jump into the icy waters of Bass Strait to cool off. It’s also during this time of year that you’ll find major sports events such as the Australian Open and Grand Prix in Melbourne and music festivals like Meredith Music Festival and Port Fairy Folk Festival.

Getting around

Victoria is one of Australia’s smallest states, but you still may have to travel great distances at times. Travel by car is the most common way to get around outside of Melbourne, providing the most freedom of movement. Vline trains connect Melbourne with destinations in regional Victoria, with lines to Geelong, Ballarat, Swan Hill, Shepparton, Wodonga, and Gippsland. Coaches supplement regional trains, traveling from regional cities to other areas, including the Surf Coast and ski fields.

Traveler tips

Regional Victoria is a haven for cycling enthusiasts thanks to its broad selection of rail trails. Across the state, unused railway corridors have been transformed into dedicated cycling trails, such as the popular Murray To The Mountains Rail Trail. Skiing is an outdoor activity you may not expect to be popular in Victoria. The ski fields in the High Country of Victoria are open from June to September and can even be visited as a (long) day trip from Melbourne.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is unique to Victoria in Australia?

What makes Victoria unique is its wide selection of Australian landscapes and experiences, despite its relatively small size. Visitors can find everything in Victoria, from beaches and vineyards to rainforests, farmland, bush, mountains, and even desert, within the state’s borders.

What is the prettiest town in Victoria?

Bright is the prettiest town in Victoria, although it beats out some stiff competition from places such as Port Fairy, Healesville, and Daylesford. Located in Victoria’s high country, the town of Bright features country charm and is incredibly beautifully decorated in autumn colors.

Why should people visit Victoria?

Victoria is worth visiting for many reasons, not least because it’s the home of Melbourne, Australia’s culture and sporting capital. Visitors will find it just as easy in Victoria to enjoy gourmet food and world-class wine as it is to go antiquing or relax in hot springs.

What is the biggest waterfall in Victoria?

The Dandongadale Falls are Victoria’s highest waterfalls, dropping 837 feet (255 meters) across several steps before finally falling over the Cobbler Plateau. They are located within Victoria’s Alpine National Park, and while the falls are easily viewed from a distance, it is challenging to reach their base.

How can I spend two days in Victoria?

There are many ways you can spend two days in Victoria besides just exploring the city of Melbourne. You could drive along the Great Ocean Road to see the Surf Coast or travel to the Grampians to hike and see Aboriginal rock art.

Where can I go within 2 hours from Melbourne?

Two hours from Melbourne by car, you can find many exciting destinations, such as Daylesford’s spa resorts, the former gold rush town of Ballarat, the wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary, and the penguin parades of Phillip Island.
