Explore Victoria from holiday homes to rent

Grab your swimsuit, hiking boots, leotard and top hat... basically, if you can dream it, Victoria's got it. Along Australia's southeastern coast, Victoria's known for its diversity – you'll find everything from world-class museums and entertainment in cosmopolitan Melbourne, to hiking trails in the Victorian Alps and sandy beaches along the Tasman Sea. Although it's the country's most densely populated state, Victoria's got plenty of scenic wilderness in its epic national parks, and you won't have any trouble finding Victoria vacation rentals near the countless mountains, forests, desert and coastline throughout the state.
