Best Places to Visit in Victoria

Victoria is a wonderful place to visit and live: the state capital, Melbourne, has been named the most liveable city in the world for the past six years by the Economist, and it has also been named the greatest coffee city in the world, beating out old favorites Rome and Vienna.

However, with 2.6 million international visitors flocking to Victoria in 2016, there's plenty to see and do outside of Melbourne's urban buzz: drive the famous Great Ocean Road, relax on the beach in a coastal village, marvel at the beauty of a national park, or visit Phillip Island's adorable little fairy penguin colony.

There's so much to see and do in Victoria that you should set aside a few weeks to do so. You'll get a fascinating glimpse into Australian city and country culture, meet a lot of friendly locals, and create lifelong memories.
