Victoria travel guide

Specialty Museums · Gardens · Landmarks
The smallest state on mainland Australia, Victoria nevertheless boasts a richly attractive interior and an exotic, bay-strewn coastline that compensates for its relatively diminutive size. With snow-topped alpine areas and coastal paradises running into dry, semi-arid plains in the west and northwest, Victoria has something of a split personality in relation to its geography. Around 70 percent of Victoria’s population live in the capital of the state, Melbourne.
