coming from a different country.

Life in
    Victoria is small in size but big on appeal.
    Located on the south east of Australia, it has
    a diverse and beautiful natural landscape
    and varied weather – cooler in the south and
    warmer in the north. Victoria is an economic
    hub and is the most densely populated state
    in Australia.

    It’s easy to explore Victoria’s natural
    attractions. Simply hire a car, catch a train
    or book a tour to see the Great Ocean Road,
    Philip Island, Yarra Valley wineries and
    national parks such as the Grampians
    and the You Yangs. Head further north
    to historical towns such as Bendigo, the
