Nestled in Southeast Australia is the state of Victoria—the ultimate place to spend a relaxing and revitalising holiday. From winding down the Great Ocean Road to dancing in heart-pumping nightclubs, Victoria has everything you need for an exciting getaway.
People enjoying cheap holidays in Victoria invariably find themselves sunbathing at the area's many beautiful beaches. Surf and hunt for shells at Cape Woolamai, or, if you prefer a secluded getaway, take in the peace and quiet at Fairy Cove in Wilsons Promontory National Park. If a trip to the renowned St. Kilda Beach is more your style, book a car hire in Victoria and enjoy the beautiful, scenic drive.
Now, no trip to Victoria is complete without a visit to the capital, so add a Melbourne holiday to your itinerary and visit the National Gallery of Victoria. Check out the National Sports Museum at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where you'll learn about everything from the Olympics to the Melbourne Cricket Club. The National Sports Museum is also the home of the Australian Racing Museum, which highlights the best of Australia's thoroughbred racing horses. For a museum experience outside of Melbourne, visit the Australia National Surfing Museum in Torquay.
Victoria is home to several wonderful shopping destinations, many of them in Melbourne. Locals and visitors alike adore the Queen Victoria Market, often referred to as the “Queen Vic,” where you can score great deals on everything from organic produce to stuffed animals. This is the perfect place to find souvenirs for your friends and family back home, so make sure you bring an extra bag.
The food at the market is delicious, but if you prefer to sit down and be pampered, stop by one of the tapas joints near Collins Street and the Yarra River, where you can try a variety of tasty samplers. Want to explore more? Head to Geelong and make a reservation at one of the seafood restaurants along Corio Bay. These dining establishments feature fresh catches and a laid-back atmosphere. Geelong also has several Indian restaurants, most of which are located on or near Ryrie Street.
If you are a creature of the night, you will feel right at home in Victoria. Melbourne should be your go-to destination if you plan on dancing the evening away, as the city hosts some of Australia's finest DJs. The best venues are clustered on Little Collins Street, where you can order a fancy drink and get ready to show off your hottest moves. If you're too tired from the day's activities to even think about the dance floor, stop by one of the chic, laid-back pubs in Frankston and enjoy a drink before retiring to bed.
