The Fascination Of Victoria, Australia
For such a small Australian state, Victoria has a lot to offer in luxury tours, luxury holidays and luxury accommodation
. From skiing packages at Mt Buller or Falls Creek to scuba diving round the 19th century wrecks in Port Philip Bay, there is something for everyone's taste.
In the west of the State, explore the Grampians, or the Gariwerds as they are traditionally known, where you will discover over 60 different sites depicting traditional Aboriginal drawings. For one of the most spectacular drives in Australia, take a luxury tour down the Great Ocean Road. A different view awaits you at every turn. Enjoy the sandstone apparitions, affectionately known as the Twelve Apostles, standing tall and proud at the edge of the water.
