Despite its small size, the Victorian climate varies across the state. The north has much drier and warmer weather than the south. Australia's seasons are the reverse of those in the northern hemisphere. The climate can be characterised as warm to hot in summer (December to February), mild in autumn (March to May), cold and damp in winter (June to August), and cool in spring (September to November).
What To Pack:
Casual clothing for travelling & activities and smart casual for evening dining is recommended. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, insect repellent, towel, swimwear, all-weather coat/jacket and a warm sweater/jacket.

Victoria boasts over 350 wineries in 22 distinct wine regions. Enjoy tastings at the cellar door and dine on local produce at winery restaurants. From the cool-climate varieties of the Yarra Valley to the big reds of Rutherglen, you won't have to travel far to taste fantastic wine in Victoria.
Melbourne's Surrounds are unique – five winegrowing regions within 90 minutes of the city. And where there's good wine there's always great food, markets and festivals. Head west to mountains, Goldfields and four distinctive wine regions. Follow the Great Ocean Road and the Great Grape Road tasting spectacular wines along the way. With its Mediterranean climate tempered by the Murray River, north-west Victoria is home to vast orchards, citrus and olive groves, grain fields and of course, vineyards. Stretching from the bountiful Goulburn Valley, west to the opulent city of Bendigo, east to the magnificent High Country, and north to Echuca on the Murray. Five individual regions – Rutherglen, Beechworth, Glenrowan, King Valley and Alpine Valleys – producing a diverse range of wines from old-style fortified to the newer Italian varietals. Head east to Gippsland and three separate sub-regions with their own microclimates and wine styles. Discover over 100 individual vineyards and about 30 small, family-owned wineries.

Coastal Must Do's:
Victoria has almost 2,000 kilometres of coastline, which stretches from the South Australian border to the New South Wales border in the north-east corner of Victoria and fronts the Southern Ocean, Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea. The Victorian coastline is always changing, due to weather, wind, waves, and tides. The landscape ranges from sand dunes, wetlands and heathland, to forests and woodland, sheer cliffs, rocky shores and sandy beaches. National, state and coastal parks protect much of the coastline, with more than 20 marine parks and sanctuaries protecting the waters up to 5.5 kilometres offshore. The Great Ocean Road has some of Australias best beaches. Discover kilometres of clean, golden sand and crashing waves all along the coast. One of Gippsland's highlights, the Ninety Mile Beach is one of the longest and most beautiful stretches of sand in the world offering a wealth of beach activities. Mornington Peninsula spoils you for choice with calm sandy beaches that extend from Frankston near Melbourne along the length of the Peninsula.
