Victoria

Victoria at a glance Compared to the other states in Australia, Victoria is pocket-sized which makes it easy to visit all its sightseeing and touring highlights. The cosmopolitan city of Melbourne rivals Sydney in the fields of culture, shopping, dining and entertainment. Victoria is also blessed with one of the greatest scenic coastal driving routes in the world, the Great Ocean Road, introducing you to dramatic coastline once attached to Antarctica. With no fewer than 10 national parks and the world-famous Yarra Valley wine region amongst its other attractions, it’s fair to say that Victoria reigns supreme.
