Victoria – this is the State I currently call home. I wasn’t born here but it has become the place I resonate with. It has a beautiful coastline, a great city, and you get to experience four seasons in one day (this I am not kidding about).
I have been fortunate enough to visit most parts of Victoria whilst living here; whether it be a road trip to Torquay to take the dogs to the Doggy Beach, take a drive to Phillip Island for the V8’s, stay for an extended weekend up in Echuca, go snowboarding at Mt Hotham/Falls Creek/Mt Baw Baw/Mt Buller or visit family in Ballarat. I have covered just about everywhere!
The other great thing about Victoria, is Melbourne itself. Melbourne is by far the best city in Australia, as it has a vast array of cultures rolled in to the one city, so your food options are limitless, as well as your shopping choices. But what I love most about Melbourne, is the sports!
I love footy season (AFL) to watch the mighty Essendon Bombers play, whether it’s at the MCG or Etihad Stadium. Then we have the season opener for the Formula 1’s, V8’s are always a big drawcard, then you have all the other sports including soccer, netball, rugby…
Melbourne always manages to get big acts down here, with anything from comedy to music. What’s not to love?!
