A pleasure to explore
A Victorian holiday must include a trip along the Great Ocean Road. Winding your way from Geelong to Nelson along the coast of Victoria, you'll take in breathtaking scenery and must-see attractions including famous surf beaches such as Bells Beach, the 12 Apostles, seals and whales and charming fishing villages. Visit Victoria in winter and head to the alpine resorts of Hotham, Falls Creek and Mt Buller for the freshest powder, or see the little penguins at Philip Island all year round.
If indulging in gourmet food and drink is more your thing, the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges are dotted with myriad vineyards and wineries, as well as a plethora of gastronomic delights to savour. And if all that indulgence gets too much, whisk yourself away to Daylesford where the mineral springs are famous for their relaxing properties and lend themselves to luxury day spas and stunning views.
