Victoria. The "State of Excitement".
Victoria from the surf and fishing beaches on the eastern coastline to the mountains and snowfields in the north. And moving west, Mildura and the Mallee, a beautiful place which is where I come from before migrating to Perth.The State of Vic has a huge variety of differing landscapes for a State of this small size.You will find mountains,forests,rolling sand dunes, babbling brooks, huge rivers, quaint but friendly towns, scrub country and barren regions.
Victoria has a bit of everything from the exciting Melbourne (The Capital) to the town of Kilsyth nestled at the foot of the wonderful Dandenong Ranges. on to Beautiful, historic Geelong. just 73km from Melbourne.
From there you can head north and west to The Grampian Mountains and onto Mildura, an amazing oasis in the Mallee desert which happens to be my old home town.
Mildura in the North West Victoria
Mildura is the biggest town in North West Victoria and is about 550kms from Melbourne, a 6 hour drive.
Mildura which sits on the southern bank of the Murray river hasmany things of interest to the traveler.
The town was built in the desert and irrigation has seen it transformed into an oasis in the middle of the red dirt country. to read more on
