Australia is a vast continent and, as such, it has a lot to offer for visitors who come from all over the world. One of the most popular regions to visit is Victoria situated in the southern part of the country. It is situated on the Murray River and is known for its wonderful landscapes and good food and wine.
There is so much going on in this area that it would take several pages to describe. However, if you happen to get a holiday rental home in this area, you can be assured of having the best wine from the slopes of the Milawa Region, the best food that the sea has to offer and some stunning cheeses from the King Valley. Indeed, those who rent holiday homes here are in for a delightful treat for their taste buds.Scenery
As with most places on this continent, the visitor can expect to see some breathtaking scenery. The Grampian Hills are simply stunning in their splendour and the bush land comes in a close second. Coastal scenery has to be seen to be believed and the breathtaking views along the Great Ocean Road and the Great Alpine Road of Victoria is a must see if you happen to come to this area.
For those who are into animals, try visiting the Phillip Island reserve which is home to sleepy koalas, kangaroos and even penguins. This makes for a cool day trip from Melbourne too if you really like the wilds, this must be on your list of things to see.
You can see this wonderful countryside from many different angles of course. Try viewing it from horseback, from a canoe or even from the family car. If you like exploring creeks and backwaters, there are plenty here to lose yourself in.
Skiing is also popular here during the summer and Mount Buller is done out in Alpine style. Many tourists visit the place from June to October and you are far more likely to interact with the locals at this time since they like winter sports as well. It really doesn’t matter what level you ski at, there is something here for everyone.
Melbourne is one of those places that have absorbed many different cultures. Visitors to this place will always try to come back because there is always something going on here. If it is bars and restaurants you want, or perhaps a cafe or bistro, you will always find entertainment here in Melbourne.
This part of the world enjoys an extremely pleasant climate with less than 60mm or rain during the year. Temperatures in the warmest months (Dec. to Feb.) will range in the 20 – 30 degrees Celsius range.
As with all cities in Australia, you can get here with most of the major airlines in the world. This continent is so far away that it usually does not have non stop flights. However, by having a few days stop over in another country, you will arrive much fresher and ready to enjoy that rental holiday home that should become your home-away-from-home that you always dreamed of.
