It’s a great time to rediscover Victoria. With its creative foodie scene, inspiring cultural spaces and an ever-packed calendar of world-class events, Melbourne is always bright with something new.

In the region, go further on dramatic ocean roads, savour award-winning cellar doors and find magic wherever you go – mountain, valley and coast.

Welcome to Melbourne

Food is the beating heart of this city, from the CBD to neighbourhood eat streets north and south of the Yarra River. Melbourne is filled with laneway wine bars and rooftop cocktail dens. Late-night diners, gastropubs and hatted chef’s tables. A love of bean and grain is obvious in the many cafes, bakeries and brunch spots, and authentic flavours abound in diverse multicultural cuisines.

The city buzzes year-round with world-class cultural and sporting events. Book in for a heart-stopping show at the East End Theatre District, and wind a footy scarf around your neck for an AFL game at the hallowed MCG. Discover blockbuster exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria’s two galleries – NGV International and the Ian Potter Centre NGV Australia – and local artists at numerous independent galleries.

Melbourne takes fashion seriously too, with myriad looks to complete your wardrobe. Refine your individual style with designer jewellery, footwear and millinery, and get your shopping swagger on at independent boutiques, design-focused shopping centres and flagship stores.

Explore the region

Victoria’s cultural, sporting and gastronomic obsessions go far beyond the laneways of Melbourne.

Taste test award-winning wines at cellar doors from the Yarra Valley to Rutherglen, discovering the flavour of each region. Local farm-gate produce fuels the menus of cosy pubs and award-winning regional restaurants, supported by a talented new generation of craft brewers and distillers.

Victoria’s varied terrain is easy to explore. Hiking and biking trails and iconic touring routes take you from windswept coast to lush rainforest, from mountain plains to arid desert. Day-trip to the Yarra Valley or Phillip Island, or head further to explore The Murray River, the Grampians, the historic Goldfields or pristine stretches of Gippsland. In winter, hit the snowy slopes in Victoria’s High Country.

Looking to indulge and relax? Take your pick of natural hot springs for a rejuvenating soak, and wander through gold-rush history in tiny towns. Bendigo, Geelong and Ballarat are home to some of Victoria’s oldest galleries with exhibitions worth travelling for. And the Mornington Peninsula waits with exceptional sculpture parks and trails backed by stunning vistas.

So why wait? Now’s the perfect time to discover your Melbourne and Victoria.
