Victoria is a beautiful place revealing secrets and treasures of nature at every step. Each step forward is unforgettable. There are places in Victoria where you will feel a million miles away from the world you left behind. Cliff top views, lush fern gullies and isolated beaches await you. It is nature’s drama unfolding at every step. Take the time to explore Victoria’s diverse natural landscapes and iconic wildlife while you travel. Wander across sand dunes and snow white beaches, trek through lush green rainforests and rugged desert country, while getting up close to the natural inhabitants as you go.
Make the short journey from Melbourne to experience life in a historic fishing village, and uncover a treasure trove of vintage finds. Watch the great birds assemble on the Hastings foreshore as you dine on the day’s catch and sip regional wine to the sounds of live music. One of my favourite cafés in Mornington Peninsula is Pelikan Societe.
Dromana Estate is a prominent winery in the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, which is established in 1982.
