Straight Outta Melbourne

Like the people who live there, Melbourne and the state of Victoria are diverse and bursting with culture and adventure. Voted the World's Most Liveable City for 5 years in a row, STA sent two renowned photographers to Melbourne to go on the ultimate road trip around Victoria to discover what makes this state the most envied in the world.

Road Trips in Victoria

Victoria is Australia's ultimate road trippin' destination, with loads of great places to visit in a campervan on a self-drive adventure. As one of the most compact states in Australia, Victoria offers a huge variety of landscapes and experiences within a few hours of Melbourne.


If Melbourne were a person, it would definitely be the "cool kid" of the group. It's Melbourne's laid back, cultural vibes that make it the perfect destination for lovers of art, sport and food; Melbourne's well-known for its buzzing trendy cafés and multicultural cuisine. You can even visit Ramsay Street where you can take a tour to meet your favourite Neighbours.

Flick's South Victoria Roadie
For a great little roadie, start from Melbourne and drive through Geelong to Torquay, where you can surf and sit in nice cafes. Then head to Queenscliff and catch the ferry to Sorrento, which takes about 40 minutes. From there you can drive up to Arthurs Seat for a great view of the peninsula. Next, visit Red Hill for horseback winery tours and a dip in the hot springs before finishing off in Phillip Island.

Great Ocean Road Hotspots
On your way down to the see the 12 Apostles there are hundreds of must see places. Explore the "Round The Twist" lighthouse at Aireys Inlet. Go surfing in Bells Beach in Torquay. Venture off road and go bush bashing to Erskine Falls.

For the best burger joint on the Great Ocean Road, head to Bottle of Milk in Lorne! The Wye River General Store is a great place for breakfast and Apollo Bay is home to some of Australia’s best ice-cream!

Melbourne to Mallacoota
From Melbourne head to Wilsons Promotory National Park (aka The Prom) for amazing views and pristine beaches. After The Prom head off to where the Victorians go on their holidays and take the drive to Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park - the series of coastal lagoons look pretty epic from the viewpoint and the seafood here is delicious. A little gem of a campground near Gippsland is at Cape Conran, it’s 100 metres from the beach and completely off the beaten track. If you’ve got enough time explore Croajingolong Park for walks, lake views and giant sand dunes before finishing in the fishing town of Mallacoota.
