Things to do
See & do
Discover a wide range of attractions and events to entertain you during your visit.
Outside of Melbourne, Victoria boasts an amazing range of landscapes, including temperate rain forest, pristine beaches and mountain wilderness.
The 12 Apostles
Journey down the iconic Great Ocean Road to discover one of Victoria's most famous geological landmarks.
Protruding into the Bass Strait is Wilsons Promontory, a National Park containing Victoria's largest coastal wilderness area. The 'Prom' is perfect for camping, hiking and wildlife spotting.
Phillip Island's Penguin Parade
Head down to Phillip Island to catch a show that runs every night of the year. As dusk falls, a colony of the world's smallest penguin returns like clockwork from a day spent fishing to cross the beach and reach their burrows in the sand dunes.
Victoria is blessed with a number of outstanding grape-growing regions, including the Yarra Valley, Mornington & Bellarine Peninsulas, the Macedon Ranges, the Grampians, and Rutherglen, famed for its muscat.
One of Victoria's most-loved attractions, the historic Puffing Billy steam locomotive hauls visitors over trestle bridges and through the dense vegetation of the Dandenong Ranges, on Melbourne's door step.
Nature & wildlife
Victoria is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna, including many of Australia's unique native animals. Sightings of koalas, kangaroos and wombats are all common, although the platypus may be harder to come by.
The spectacular Grampians National Park is within easy reach of Melbourne, and offers visitors stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and adventure sports, as well as finely-crafted local food and wine.
