Visitors to Victoria will quickly realise that there is an abundance of fabulous sights and attractions across the state. Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, is a culturally rich and beautiful city that understandably draws many visitors each year. An organised Melbourne tour is highly recommended, but, it is also worthwhile exploring other areas of the state.
Here we take a look at four of the best sights that you will see in Melbourne and other parts of Victoria…
1: City of Melbourne
Melbourne is amazing! There is so much to see and do and it is great to experience the diversity and cultural undertones of the city. By taking a Melbourne day tour, you will see significant sights such as: the Shrine of Remembrance, the Royal Botanical Gardens and the important sporting grounds of Melbourne Olympic Park (home of the Australian Open tennis tournament) and the truly beautiful Melbourne Cricket Ground.
A Melbourne day trip often provides you with a taste of the city and some insight into the fashion, fabulous restaurants and world class museums and galleries that characterise the city. With such a taste, many visitors readily gain a sense of the areas of the city that they want to explore in further depth.
2: Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road takes in more than two hundred kilometres of the state’s most beautiful and breathtaking coastline. By taking a Great Ocean Road tour you will witness incredible beaches, picturesque and charming towns, stunning national parks, natural architecture and some of the most amazing natural beauty that exists anywhere in the world.
A Great Ocean Road day tour provides a wonderful way to spend the day and this journey is particularly special because everything is organised for you. Essentially, there is little else for you to do but relax and make the most of the gorgeous scenery while learning about the area.
3: Phillip Island
Because it is located quite close to Melbourne, a Phillip Island tour is a fabulous way to spend the day. Phillip Island is naturally beautiful and is characterised by national parks and stunning beaches.
If you fancy an evening tour, it is well worth seeing the ‘Penguin Parade’, the nightly pilgrimage of countless penguins as they make their way from the water and walk up the beach to find their nests for the night.
4: Yarra Valley
If you enjoy wine, the opportunity to take a wine tour to one of Victoria’s internationally famous wine regions is a great idea. Consider taking a Yarra Valley tour during which you will visit the beautiful Yarra Valley area and some of the area’s most awarded and fabulous wineries.
Not only will you enjoy the sights of the area, you will also have the opportunity to taste and even purchase some brilliant wines.
There is no shortage of wonderful sights in Melbourne and Victoria more broadly. When visiting Victoria, take the opportunity to explore parts of the state and the capital city by joining organised tours as these will provide you with an enjoyable experience and a wealth of relevant information.
