About the location
Regardless of if you are an Australian or international visitor, country Victoria has so much on offer. Think sites of cultural Indigenous significance, locally grown food and wine, some of the best national parks in the country, and beautiful golden beaches. In the current climate, international travel may not actually be an option, so what better is there to do than take a good old-fashioned road trip (where the journey is just as memorable as the destination) right on your doorstep.
Once you leave Melbourne, enjoy a spa day in Daylesford, pan for gold in historic Ballarat, hike through the Grampians National Park from Halls Gap, discover one of the oldest sites of Indigenous aquaculture near Hamilton, spot whales in Port Fairy, learn to surf at Apollo Bay, and eat your way through Geelong.
