VIC Weekend Escapes

Lofty mountains, vast national parks, wineries, endless beaches and a global city packed with culture; Victoria will both entertain the city-slicker and delight the outdoor adventurer.

Comprised of buzzing laneways, hipster hangouts, artsy spots and international cuisine, Melbourne is Australia’s cultural city. This vibrant city has enough to keep visitors busy for a week. Art galleries, theatres, museums and architecture steeped with heritage can be found in all directions. Yet outside of Melbourne, natural delights are sprinkled across Victoria.

On Phillip Island, find excellent surfing beaches and lots of little penguins. The iconic Great Ocean Road with its Twelve Apostles attracts tourists all year round with its impressive limestone stacks. Mornington Peninsula, speckled with wineries and sandy beaches, is the state’s favourite holiday destination. Meanwhile, wine-lovers will be even more spoiled for choice in the Yarra Valley where sparkling wines and whites steal the show.

The striking Grampians National Park is known for its sandstone peaks, Aboriginal history and awesome hiking opportunities. Head inland towards New South Wales, and you will find a myriad of quaint regional towns with interesting histories.
