Although it might be Australia’s second smallest state, Victoria is still overflowing with places to explore and a whole range of diverse landscapes sitting side by side. 

With an epic coastline and some of the best drives in the world along the southern coast, to mountain ranges, rainforests, an abundance of native wildlife and Australia’s longest river running along the northern border, each region of Victoria offers something unique and different to anywhere else in Australia. 

Victoria is also our home state, so we have spent many years exploring all it’s nooks and crannies. Here’s everything you need to know about Australia’s place to be.
