Vivacious Victoria in south-east Australia is the third smallest state, but the second most populated state in Australia. Melbourne is its capital, which is renowned for being a melting pot of culture and the sporting mecca of Australia.
Regions in Victoria vary from The Murray, Goldfields, Mornington Peninsula, Great Ocean Road, Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula, Gippsland, The High Country, The Grampians and The Yarra Valley and The Dandenongs.
During our around Australia trip in 2014 we mainly stuck to the coastline regions of Victoria, however we did venture into the Goldfields area of Bendigo and through Daylesford. You see I was born in Bendigo and had to take a detour to visit my relatives that still live here.
On our second caravan trip in 2017 we traced the Murray River from Albury-Wodonga, criss-crossing the river between Victoria and New South Wales, until we reached the border of South Australia.
Here is an A to Z of the places we visited in Victoria which will reveal the diversity of this small state:
For a small state Victoria packs a punch! As a child I explored a lot of the state, in particular The Murray region along the Murray River and a bit of the High Country, which is spectacular. Although I have never been, I believe The Grampians is another stunning region in Victoria. As well as Wilsons Promontory in Gippsland and Phillip Island south of Melbourne are also highly rated.
