Victoria is Australia’s smallest and most densely populated mainland state. It is
slightly smaller than the United Kingdom and all destinations within it are no more than
a day’s drive from Melbourne.
Melbourne is home to more than seven in every 10 Victorians but there is much more to see
than one big city. Other places worth visiting are historic gold mining cities of
Ballarat and Bendigo, wildlife in the Grampians National Park and the spectacular coastal
drive along the Great Ocean Road.
