The Garden State of Victoria

Melbourne is a vibrant city with the surrounding 'garden state' well worth a visit.

Tourists from over the world come to enjoy the state of Victoria's beauty, culture, food, history and wildlife.

There are spectacular Mountain Ranges, country landscapes, rugged coatlines and sandy beaches within a few hours drive from Melbourne.

The Dandenong Ranges, Yarra Valley, Macedon Ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island are areas of beauty close to the suburbs of Melbourne.

The forests of Mountain Ash and fern gullies are where you can listen to the amazing repertoire of the Superb Lyrebird.
