Victoria & Australia

Victoria has a spectacular coast line, with visitors come from near and far to drive along the famous Great Ocean Road– and they are never disappointed. The twelve apostles are a must see Victorian natural wonder, if you don’t feel up to the 6h round trip from Melbourne, you can always get a ride on a helicopter there! Wilson Promontory, the most southerly point of Australian mainland is another awe inspiring road trip with pristine beaches and amazing tracks and trails. View Destination information.
