Victoria is Australia’s second smallest state; it’s located at the south-east tip of Australia directly above the Island state of Tasmania. Victoria is approximately 227,600 square kilometres that equal roughly the same size as the British Isles.
Like most states in Australia, Victoria offers a diverse range of different environment, from beautiful beaches to rugged mountains. No matter what you’re into you are sure to find something in Victoria for you, hiking, fishing, camping, climbing, skiing, wineries and so much more. The truly great thing about Victoria is that nearly everything is only a day trip away from the capital city, Melbourne.
The capital city of Melbourne is a vibrant metropolitan city with many distinct cultural groups. There are some amazing markets and a wide variety of shopping outlets and sporting events. Home of the famous MCG oval you could take in a rock concert, AFL match or a game of cricket.
You wouldn’t think such a small state could have such a varying climate but for a small state it definitely packs a decent punch. The North of the state is fairly dry and warm while the southern part of the state is relatively cooler with more rainfall. Summer in Victoria is quite warm while the temperature drops quite a bit over the colder winter months.
