Victoria Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia
Just beneath New South Wales lies Australia's triangle shaped state, Victoria. This region, while not quite as popular as Sydney, is home to another of Australia's popular destinations, Melbourne. Consider this area because it has all the class and culture of Sydney, but without the large crowds. Additionally, this region is also famous for the Great Ocean Road as well as vineyards and wineries, gorgeous scenery, hiking trails, and quaint small towns.

Remember, when planning to visit anywhere in Australia that their seasons are opposite of the Northern Hemisphere. They celebrate Christmas with cool drinks and a day at the beach.
Melbourne is home to various 19th-century architectural masterpieces. Today, many of these buildings serve as hotels, theaters, art galleries or anything else to support the culture and arts in this state. Take the time to wander the streets of the major towns and cities in Victoria. Follow those streets to the Australian Center for Contemporary Art and the nearby National Gallery of Victoria International. Both of these venues are free and the artist in you will love it.

For more in the art world, travel just outside of Melbourne to the Heide House. It was once the home of prominent art patrons who housed working artists of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Currently, the house is a museum with three different exhibition spaces and a sculpture park.

The shopper in your group will appreciate the markets scattered around the city. Gertrude Street is full of eclectic shops and boutiques, and Dagmar Rousset will have some of the wildest prints you've ever seen. Be sure to find the South Melbourne Market for the best selection of quintessential Australian souvenirs.

Also, this area is rich with history. Stroll through Melbourne or other towns like Ballarat, Maldon or Beechworth for the kind of atmosphere that will have you thinking you've stepped back in time.

Don't end that walk, though, without a wander through the Royal Botanic Gardens. This garden is full of the bizarre and beautiful flowers of Australia all year long. If you're there for their summer, stick around for a movie on the Central Lawn in their Moonlight Cinema.

To the southwest of Melbourne is the Great Ocean Road, home of many activities (more below) and the famous Twelve Apostles.
The state of Victoria is divided into twelve regions: Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Gippsland, Goldfields, High Country, Wimmera, Phillip Island, Great Ocean Road, Sunraysia, Mallee, Goulburn Valley and Dandenong Ranges.

Head west for an afternoon with richer wildlife. From Wilson's Promontory to Gippsland's Wilderness Coast, you'll begin to see nature in ways you have never seen nature before.

Take a drive along the breathtaking coast of the Great Ocean Road to become familiar with this spectacularly scenic and famous stretch of coastline. Although the Twelve Apostles are the most famous landmark of this region, it is only one of many spectacular sights. Here's a list of 10 must see places to stop along the Great Ocean Road for more ideas. Several local and National Parks in the area are home to wildlife such as Koalas.
