Discover the regions of Victoria
Take an early morning balloon flight, meet passionate food and wine producers, and encounter a platypus at Healesville Sanctuary in the Yarra Valley. Wander the walking trails, meander the villages and discover the hidden delights of the Dandenong Ranges among its scenic winding roads, abundant artist studios, craft stores and renowned gardens.
Breathe in the fresh sea air, sample innovative local cuisine, and soak up the relaxed alfresco lifestyle of the Mornington Peninsula, just an hour from Melbourne. Explore the galleries, spas and cafes in breezy seaside villages, cool off with a day on the beach, or escape to the hinterland for gourmet delights at boutique wineries.
Experience the diverse character and rich history of the Goldfields. Discover the legacy of Victoria's gold rush, visible everywhere, from the tree-lined boulevards and botanic gardens to the stunning architecture, artistic communities and charming country towns. Catch major exhibitions at some of Australia's best regional art galleries and join in the fun at local festivals. Dine out at bustling cafes and fine dining restaurants, sample varietals at cellar doors, or try some retail therapy at specialty shops, markets and boutiques across the region.
Replenish the soul, reconnect with nature and share the best of the outdoor life amid the sunny climes of the vibrant Murray River region. Splash around on sandy river beaches, wander through towering red gum forests, or take a cruise downriver on a paddle steamer or canoe. Enjoy a party? Kick up your heels at music, food and wine festivals all year-round, delve into the rich pioneer history, and then stroll the fairways of some the country's finest golf courses.
