Four Great Day Trips in Victoria
If you are looking to escape the city and want to get back to nature, the Dandenongs are the ideal location. With fantastic gardens and tall trees the National Rhododendron Gardens is the first point of call. There is an amazing one hundred acres to explore filled with superb flora including, camellias, azaleas and of course rhododendrons.
Moving on is Grants Picnic Ground at Kallista and a marvelous walk around Sherbrooke Forest where ornithologists can spot cockatoos and kookaburras in their natural habitat.
The Mornington Peninsula is full of enchanting villages, restaurants and wineries that can be visited any time of the year. Great wineries such as Montalto are well worth a visit and the cellar doors and restaurants are a delight to the visitor.
The peninsula is full of wonderful towns such as Sorrento and Portsea which as well as fabulous beaches there are heritage buildings to explore. Another must see attraction is McClelland Sculpture Park which is full of local artists work.
Located in the Central Highlands, Daylesford makes a great day out. Daylesford is crammed full of galleries and quaint shopping that can be rewarding to browse through for unique gifts.
Some of the region’s best restaurants are located in Daylesford where patrons can partake in some great local cuisine. Perhaps enjoy an afternoon at the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, and bathe in the luxurious mineral waters before having a relaxing massage.
The Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road probably needs just more than a single day bus hire or coach charter to see all the attractions. If your group is in to surfing then head directly to Torquay which has some of the best surfing in Victoria. It is interesting that both the Quiksilver and Rip Curl surfing brands originate from Torquay.
Close by is the quaint seaside town of Lorne which claim to fame is the lively arts scene that is going on there. And before returning back home you will have time to visit Loch Ard Gorge which cannot be missed on this marvelous trip.
