Tourist SpotsAustralia is never short on things to do or places to visit. Whether it’s a romantic getaway for two or a nature trek, The Land Down Under won’t disappoint. And since it’s a continent and country, choosing a place to visit can be overwhelming. If you’re still undecided where to go, why not start with the country’s ‘Garden State’?

Victoria is all places in one, which is why it is the most densely populated state in the country. Not only is it rolling green hills, but it’s also one of the world’s best shopping meccas – which is why it has earned the monikers ‘The Place to Be’ and ‘On the Move’. Here are some of the best tourist spots in this amazing Australian state:

Werribee Mansion

Go back in time to 19th century Australia through the Werribee Mansion. It was built by rich farmers in the late 18th century and still has the same charm as it did back then. The Mansion is situated only 30 minutes from West Melbourne.

While there are prestigious five-star hotels around the area, budget-smart travelers can easily spot motels for lease in Victoria and get more out of their trip. This way you can spend the money on souvenirs and romantic dinners for two instead.

Royal Botanic Gardens

Melbourne’s world famous landscape built in 1846 is a wonderful site for both adults and children alike. Visitors can choose from activities such as learning about the interaction and evolution of plants in the country as well as the people, bushland hikes, and viewing the starry skies to name a few.

These are just some places that you wouldn’t want to miss when visiting Victoria. Apart from places, you can also take a sampling of some local Australian food such as vegemite and the all-time favourite snack Tim Tams.
