Nature & the outdoors

Wander Victoria

Choose your own adventure in Victoria's natural wonderland and discover a place where you can fill up, slow down, uncoil and recharge.

When was the last time you slowed down, pulled over and kicked up crunchy autumn leaves, tossed snowballs or gathered bunches of wildflowers with child-like abandon? Give it a go and watch your worries slip away and your brow unfurrow.

Switch your streaming service for splashing in streams, your wifi for wildlife. There's nothing like the great outdoors for sheer entertainment. Just try not to giggle as Phillip Island's little penguins waddle up the beach at dusk, when you spy a kangaroo joey peeking out of its mothers pouch, or when a rainforest is lit up by thousands of fireflies.

It's unbecoming to brag, but you can be forgiven when you've got the 12 Apostles, Wilsons Prom and the Grampians on your doorstep. Victoria has beaches, mountains, endless lakes and pink lakes, waterfalls, rainforests, wildlife parks and wildlife in nature. Not for a strictly limited season, but forever. For free. For you.

So arm yourself with your sense of wonder and go for a wander. What you'll find will blow your mind.
