Most famous for its cosmopolitan capital Melbourne, the state of Victoria is home to some of Australia’s best natural attractions. From the dramatic coastline of the Great Ocean Road to the sophisticated wineries of the Yarra Valley, there is something for everyone to love in Victoria. And by Aussie standards, it’s a small state, meaning you can see and do a lot, even in a short trip.

Of course, any trip around Victoria should start in Melbourne. Whether you’re a city person or not, it’s hard not to fall in love with this charismatic capital. But once you’ve been to a footy game, got lost down the laneways and had the best coffee of your life, it’s time to get out and explore the rest of this fine southern state. And we have plenty of Victoria Tours and short breaks to take you there!

Best Victoria Tours & Day Trips

All our Victorian day tours depart from Melbourne, so staying in the city means the rest of the state is within easy reach.

With over 1,800 kilometres of coastline, Victoria has plenty of beaches to explore. Enjoy one of Australia’s most spectacular coastal drives along the Great Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles. Undoubtedly our most popular day tour in Victoria, a day trip along the Great Ocean Road will take you past pristine surf beaches, dramatic ocean cliffs and lush temperate rainforest. The highlight of the day will be the 12 Apostles, a series of towering limestone stacks off the coast near Port Campbell. With several Great Ocean Road tours available, we’re sure to have an option that suits you.

Other coastal regions of Victoria you can visit on a day trip include French Island, Phillip Island and Wilsons Promontory. Besides the unbeatable natural scenery, these areas are also famous for the adorable wildlife. Join a Phillip Island tour to watch as thousands of little penguins make their way ashore each day. French Island is home to a large koala population. At Wilsons Promontory, you should always keep an eye out for wombats!

Melbourne is famous for its food and wine culture, and thankfully the rest of Victoria is no different. If you’re keen to taste Victoria’s regional flavours, sign up for one of our winery tours to the Yarra Valley or the Mornington Peninsula. Both these well-known Victorian wine regions are recognised for their sophisticated wines and world-class restaurants. Cheers!

Short Breaks in Victoria

Some of Victoria’s top destinations definitely warrant a longer stay to better appreciate the area. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a night in the Grampians on our 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians tour. Spend day one winding your way down the Great Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles. Then on day two, explore the bushland and rocky scenery of the Grampians with bushwalks.

Our 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island tour combines our two most popular tours in Victoria into one short break. Staying overnight in Torquay, you’ll explore the Great Ocean Road on day one, before taking the ferry across Port Phillip Bay to spend day two on Phillip Island. Finish the tour off at the Penguin Parade before returning to Melbourne. It’s the best way to explore these two natural treasures!
