    • 2. Melbourne awaits you! Australia’s second city, if you go on size alone, Melbourne sits on the south-east coast of the continent at the northern end of Port Philip bay. People will often tell you that Melbourne is more European than the AngloAmerican fusion that characterizes most Australian cities, and in truth it's an accurate description. The entire city has an effortless style that you find in continental European cities such as Milan or Paris - from its trams to the haute couture trappings of its citizens Melbourne exudes an air of intelligence and sophistication. But you'd be wrong to think that the pace of life in Melbourne is in any way slow or relaxed. Its nightlife equals that of anywhere else in the country, it is the Australian capital of performing arts and the sheer range of entertainment on offer will keep you coming back for more. Melbourne is also more than a match for anywhere with its surroundings. Victoria hides some of Australia's most beautiful scenery, drive the Great Ocean Road and you'll find some of the best limestone coastal scenery you'll see anywhere, or head for the serene natural beauty of the Yarra Valley and its vineyards. The city of some 3.7 million inhabitants is simply swallowed up in the surroundings and an hour's drive transports you a thousand miles away from urbanity.

    • 10. The YARRA VALLEY lies just an hour away from Melbourne city but seems a thousand miles away from the urban landscape. A lush, fertile region in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range of mountains the Yarra is covered in vineyards, with rows upon rows of vines lining the slopes and flat valley floor. It's worth coming here for the breathtaking scenery but it would be a mistake to visit and not try at least one of the various tours and tastings offered by the various vineyards. Famous names around here include Five Oaks, Ainsworth and Eyton. The latter includes an excellent restaurant and offers some tremendous special events where you can enjoy the wine while listening to classical music. Various companies offer tours to the area where you'll get to sample some of the local produce and learn a little about the production and growing methods that make Yarra Valley wines one of Australia's most famous exports.
    • 11. The GREAT OCEAN ROAD starts at Torquay, 100km west of Melbourne. From there it winds its 180km way around the Southwest coast of Victoria, passing some of the best coastal scenery in Australasia. The coastline is spectacularly rocky, a large stretch of it is known as Shipwreck Coast due to the number of vessels that have met their end on the spurs and cliffs here. Experienced divers or snorkellers can visit some of these including the ill-fated Loch Ard. Plaques positioned along the route tell you the sorry tales of how many vessels met their end. Other sights of interest along the road include the Angahook-Lorne Forest Park which contains the spectacular Erskine Falls and an abundance of wildlife.

They aren't too arduous, usually only taking about two hours to complete, and they offer the chance of seeing some of the wildlife, which includes possums and rosellas. Olinda, nestled in the ranges, is a quaint little town with some nice cafés and craft galleries.

You can also visit the Chinese Village, a recreation of the Chinese settlements that the prospectors from China established in the region, and the Diggings, the site of a genuine gold mine where you can pan for gold yourself.
