Holidays to Melbourne & Victoria

by the FREEDOM AUSTRALIA experts

Melbourne & Victoria

With its Victorian buildings, tree lined boulevards and fine parks and gardens, Melbourne is very much a ‘grand city’ – but the café and beach culture and laid back Aussie lifestyle are never far away. Many of Australia’s major sporting events take place in Melbourne.

Further afield, the attractions of Victoria are there to tempt you, from the native wildlife of Wilsons Promontory and Phillip Island to the breathtaking scenery of the Great Ocean Road. Inland are the world class wineries of the Yarra Valley, spectacular National Parks and the remains of historic gold rush towns upon which the state was built.

About Melbourne & Victoria

Welcome to Australia’s ‘Capital of Cool’, the cultured and cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. Spend your days strolling down cobbled laneways and discover boutique shops, famous eateries and unique cafes; or immerse yourself in its creative arts scene with a trip to a fascinating gallery or exhibition. Wherever you end up in Melbourne, you can be sure a great coffee is never far away!

Enchanting Wildlife

From Melbourne, take a trip to nearby Phillip Island. Inhabited by furry locals and surrounded by miles of stunning coastline, this island is a nature-lovers paradise. Watch penguins waddle by at the famous Penguin Parade or tantalise the taste buds with fresh local seafood.

Beautiful Vineyards

For more fine Victorian produce, we recommend venturing to the picturesque vineyards of Yarra Valley for a gourmet lunch and the chance to sample some of the delicious wines Australia is famed for. For the ultimate experience, stay in one of the region’s luxurious boutique hotels and awake to the sights of the beautiful surrounding countryside before a day exploring the cellar doors.

Iconic Great Ocean Road

Of course, no holiday to Victoria would be complete without cruising along the 243km of breathtaking coastline that makes up the Great Ocean Road. Discover hidden beaches, secluded coves and ancient rainforest as you experience what is regarded as one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives.
