The Twelve Apostles in Victoria

Victoria may be one of the smallest states in Australia, but it still packs an almighty punch. And what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in opportunity for adventure. Quintessentially Aussie experiences, unforgettable wildlife encounters and gourmet food and wine… all the makings of a perfect holiday Down Under. In Melbourne you’ll get lost in its quirky laneways before grabbing a drink from one of the abundant rooftop bars and catching a local sporting event. Out of the city, look for penguins in Phillip Island, drink world-class wine in the Yarra Valley and explore the rugged Grampians or Great Otway national parks. And of course there’s the epic tarmac of the Great Ocean Road… what a journey!

When to Go to Victoria

With temperatures hovering around the 20°C mark, autumn (March-May) is the best time to visit Victoria. That said, this beautiful state can be explored year-round. No matter when you visit, the food and drink is delicious, there’s always a festival going on in Melbourne, and – perhaps most importantly – you can see the majestic penguins of Phillip Island 12 months a year. Whether they’re laying eggs, feeding chicks, moulting, mating or building nests, they’re out in force daily. So if you want to take a waddle on the wild side, every season is your oyster. For more ideas, see our Victoria events guide.
