The Victoria, Australia region
Hugging the tip of the Australian east coast, Victoria is Australia's second-smallest state, covering 227,600 square kilometres – roughly the size of the British Isles.
Packed into such a compact area is a wealth of diverse regional areas and attractions, from sweeping coastline and pristine beaches to national parks and forests teeming with wildlife to wineries, lakes and mountains offering skiing, climbing and hiking. Best of all, many of Victoria's unique and varied landscapes are easily accessible as day trips from Melbourne.
Despite its small size, the Victorian climate varies across the state. The north is much drier and warmer weather than the south. Australia's seasons are the reverse of those in the northern hemisphere. The climate can be characterised as warm to hot in summer (December to February), mild in autumn (March to May), cold and damp in winter (June to August), and cool in spring (September to November).
The past is always present in Victoria. Nearly everywhere you look, you'll discover evidence of the state's proud and fascinating history, from elegant Victorian-era buildings and Murray River paddle steamers to maritime museums and steam trains.
Discover beautifully preserved goldmining towns, bushrangers lairs, and ancient burial sites testifying to the long history of Aboriginal occupation. Explore the wealth of history and heritage in each of Victoria's regions.
Melbourne and Victoria host some of Australia's most prestigious events throughout the year, including the Spring Racing Carnival culminating in the Melbourne Cup in November, the Australian Open Tennis Championships in January, the Formula 1™ Australian Grand Prix in March, the Melbourne International Arts Festival in October, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show in March and April. Your tastebuds will be rewarded with a number of food and wine events around the state.
Victoria's capital, Melbourne, sits on the Yarra River and around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Lauded for its sense of style and elegance, Melbourne boasts glamorous festivals and events, Australia's best shopping, a lively passion for eating and drinking, and a flourishing interest in the arts. Restored and preserved nineteenth-century architecture, built following the discovery of gold, provides a heady reminder of a prosperous age, while beautifully tended parks and gardens present a therapeutic respite from the pace of city life.
It's not easy to see all that Victoria has to offer, but here is a list of some of the state’s top attractions – striking public spaces, state-of-the-art museums, unique wildlife, heritage sites, glorious examples of gold rush architecture, and more. Because of Victoria's compact size, each attraction is also within easy reach of each other.
Appreciate art and surrounds at the two National Gallery of Victoria spaces - the iconic original housing international art and the newer, light-filled home of local works.
Dive deep to discover life beneath the Southern Ocean at the Melbourne Aquarium; walk under tunnels filled with sharks and rays, or ride a simulated underwater rollercoaster.
Find the jewels in the Crown at the Crown Casino Complex; signature restaurants from top chefs, international boutiques, luxury accommodation, hip bars and great views
Queen Victoria Market: Shop 'til you drop at this celebrated market to see buskers, find souvenirs and to marvel at the fresh produce and the treats in the Dairy Hall.
Melbourne Cricket Ground: See a match or tour the home of Aussie cricket and the Australian Football League, the site of the 1956 Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
In the tradition of the world's busiest public spaces, Federation Square in the centre of the city buzzes with a daily program of events, restaurants and cafes and bold galleries.
Journey to the stars and beyond at the Melbourne Planetarium, travel through space and time, and have a hair-raising encounter with lighting volts at ScienceWorks.
Eureka Skydeck 88: Teeter on The Edge, a switchable glass cube that slides you out from the building's 88th floor for unsurpassed views of Melbourne and far beyond.
Old Melbourne Gaol Crime & Justice Experience: Sentence yourself to a day of fun or a spooky night at Victoria's oldest prison, which housed tough criminals and the infamous bushranger, Ned Kelly.
Go below the iconic 160-metre spire to catch premier performing arts and international touring performances, and enjoy a post-show tipple in the bar at the Arts Centre.
Catch a train to Melbourne Zoo from Bellair Terrace. Enliven your visit with up-close Wild Encounters tours, groove in summer to the 'Zoo Twilights' music performances, or just gawp at new arrivals.
Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre: Unearth the critical and quirky contributions of the Chinese miners who came to the Victorian goldfields in the 1850s, through interactive exhibits.
At the Melbourne Museum, touch and feel your way through local history; give Phar Lap a nod, explore a rainforest, rest in a rollercoaster car, and discover Koori heritage.
