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. Start your Journey in Melbourne and get lost in the quirky laneways, catch a local sporting event or wade with platypus at the nearby Healesville Sanctuary. And let's not forget that this is a state made for road trips. Get behind the wheel and explore beyond the city, where you can seek out penguins on Phillip Island, drink world-class wine in the Yarra Valley and explore the rugged Grampians or Great Otway National Parks. Ultimate discoveries continue when you take on the spectacular Great Ocean Road, one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives, where travel icons like the 12 Apostles abound.

When to Go to Victoria
With temperatures hovering around 20°C, 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.
