Tourist locations


Visit Melbourne - Check out the Visit Melbourne website for great ideas and attractions.

The Great Ocean Road - Drive one of the world's most scenic coastal touring routes, the Great Ocean Road, spanning 243 kilometres along the stunning coastline of Victoria's south-west. Take in the panoramic views as the road winds along cliff tops, up to breathtaking headlands, down onto the edge of beaches, across river estuaries and through lush rainforests.

Federation Square - Federation Square's unique position, nature and design is makes it a 'must see' destination of Victoria. It is also the logical point from which visitors begin their exploration of all that Melbourne has to offer as its conveniently located opposite Flinders Street Station in the centre of Melbourne.

Melbourne Zoo - Over 250 species from around the world can be found in the beautifully landscaped settings of Melbourne Zoo, just five minutes from the city centre.

Stroll through lush Asian and African rainforests, Australian bushland and even underwater! Walk where tigers roam and monkeys swing from tree to tree. See eye-to-eye with Orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit, explore the Trail of Elephants, then head down the bush track to see unique Australian wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and emus. Submerge yourself in their underwater world to see Victoria's iconic Little Penguins and Australian Fur Seals.

Werribee Open Range Zoo - On the Pula Reserve Walking Trail, come face-to-face with amazing gorillas, a pride of lions, see monkeys and cheetahs at play and feel the sand between your toes at the new Hippo Beach.

No trip to the Zoo is complete without heading out on safari across grassy plains where you will find rhinoceros, giraffes, zebras and antelopes grazing together on the picturesque savannah.

All of the above, including the 40-minute safari tour, is included in the Zoo admission price. For those looking for even more adventure, why not try one of the behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters? Feed a giraffe, stroke a serval, see amazing animals on the savannah from an open vehicle, and, in the new Gorilla Behind the Scenes encounter, get up close and personal with three gorilla bachelors.

Royal Botanic Gardens - Attracting over 1.8 million visitors annually, the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is a treasured part of Melbourne's cultural life and a valuable asset to the heritage-rich city. With its stunning vistas, tranquil lakes and diverse plant collections, the Gardens are a place of continual discovery and delight.

The Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria offers engaging tours including the Aboriginal Heritage Walk, Garden Discovery Tours and punting on the tranquil Ornamental Lake, all set against a beautiful backdrop and just moments from the city.


Visit Ballarat - Check out Visit Ballarat website for great ideas and attractions.

Sovereign Hill - It's just like stepping back in time to goldrush Ballarat during the 1850s - from the hustle and bustle of Main Street where costumed ladies and gents parade their new-found wealth, to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where visitors pan for real gold and it's 'finders keepers'

Ballarat Wildlife Park - Set upon 32 acres of woodland is a collection of Australian native animals and reptiles which have been chosen for their educational and conservation potential. The reptile collection features over 200 snakes, lizards, turtles, crocodiles and frogs. In January 2014, a new $1 million crocodile billabong enclosure was opened, featuring the newly acquired 5 metre crocodile 'Crunch'!
