If you’re a road-tripper, The Great Alpine Road offers a 339-kilometre journey along sealed roads that connect Wangaratta in Victoria’s north-east right across to Metung on the breath-taking Gippsland Lakes four hours east of Melbourne.
The Great Alpine Road, as you might suspect, winds through Victoria’s High Country and opens up the Australian Alps. Take a detour to Mount Buffalo to encounter its unique granite formations, waterfalls and lookouts with sweeping views of the Alps. Return to the Great Alpine Road and continue to the alpine resort of Mount Hotham - Victoria's highest alpine village. Hotham swells each winter with the ski-set, but mild summer temperatures also make it popular with bushwalkers who trek beside fields of wildflowers. It’s also great for horse riding, and alpine lakes and streams attract anglers hoping to land some of Australia's largest river-dwelling trout. Read more about some of Australia's Ski Fields
Discuss you plans, your needs and wish-list with your ATAS accredited travel agent to ensure your travel plans fit you like a pair of waders in an alpine stream.

Head out to the western reaches of Victoria, and you’ll find yourself exploring the historic Goldfields region—home to wonderful historic cities like Bendigo and Ballarat—and the rugged Grampians. Victoria’s gold rush is evident just about everywhere you look out this way. The regional cities and towns here boast wide, tree-lined streets, grand buildings, parks and squares that speak to the gleaming days of another age. Not that these cities are in decline. The numerous top-notch restaurants, galleries and wineries, and popular walking and cycling trails are testament to that.
Grampians and Goldfields
If you’re looking for a more physical pursuit, consider The Goldfields Track—a 200 kilometre walking-cycling trail between Bendigo and Ballarat through the lovely towns of Castlemaine, Hepburn and Daylesford.

Further west in the Grampians you’ll explore rugged ranges whose explosions of colourful wildflowers draw seasonal waves of visitors. Much more permanent are the Grampians National Park’s wonderful Aboriginal rock art sites
. As with much of regional Victoria, the good food and wine experiences are fabulous here, too.
A new addition to the tourism landscape out this way is the astonishing Silo Art Trail— Australia’s largest outdoor gallery. Follow the trail and you’ll be taken on a 200 kilometre journey through a visual history of the Wimmera/Mallee region painted on towering grain silos.
Have a chat to your favourite ATAS accredited Victoria travel agent and plan the perfect road trip through western Victoria. You’ll find their local knowledge and experience invaluable.
Slow days along the mighty Murray River The Murray River is Australia’s longest, and its long, meandering journey is responsible for the shape of much of Victoria’s northern border with New South Wales. Starting its journey as a trickle from the Australian Alps, the Murray drains the western side of our highest mountains, then winds across inland plains into South Australia before meeting the sea near Goolwa. It’s a journey of some 2,500 kilometres through gorgeous regional towns producing some of Australia’s finest fare—towns like river towns of Albury Wodonga, Echuca Moama, Swan Hill and Mildura.
This is a region of slow holidays. Hit the Murray, hire your own houseboat and glide along at your own pace or rent a boat and drop a line in. The region’s great paddle steamers still ply these waters, connecting visitors with the pioneering spirit of the place. Your ATAS accredited Victoria travel agent can help you plan your visit at the best time of year, and book the perfect Murray River paddle steamer dining cruise.

Centre yourself in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges
Head towards the very centre of Victoria and you’ll come to Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges—a region famed for mineral water springs, award-winning restaurants and wineries, and gorgeous boutique hotels and guesthouses.
Many come to the Daylesford-Hepburn Springs region—home to more than 80% of Australia’s known mineral water springs—to unwind both in body and mind at local mineral spas and wellness retreats. Fine food and wine are also significant drawcards to the region.
Likewise, Hanging Rock—a place seared into the consciousness of generations of Australians who have watched Bruce Beresford's haunting masterpiece. About 70 kilometres north-west of Melbourne and just a few kilometres north of Mount Macedon, Hanging Rock is the perfect spot for a well-provisioned picnic.
A Victoria travel agent can help you plan and book that gourmet wellness escape you’ve been waiting for.
