Victoria is Australia's southernmost mainland state and is astoundingly diverse. Within its boundaries are 35 national parks, encompassing every possible terrain, from rainforest and mountain ranges to sun-baked outback desert and a coast where waves crash dramatically onto rugged sandstone outcroppings.
Most visitors to Victoria start out exploring Melbourne's cosmopolitan streets and Phillip Island with the delightful fairy penguins and then visit a few local wineries before heading for along the Great Ocean Road to experience the dramatic coastline, en-route to South Australia.
Visitors with more time might head inland to the mountains or to the outback, to the Grampians National Park and to Mildura through open deserts, past pink lakes and red sand dunes.
Whatever itinerary you choose, you're sure to find adventure and dramatic scenery in this diverse state.

First experience with A&K. Intended to ask various travel companies for quotes but Vicky (Hamlin) was so good with her suggestions that we did not seek alternative quotations the suggested itinerary was excellent and helped us decide on a balanced and interesting holiday.
