Victoria’s most popular tourist destinations and attractions are open, safe and attracting visitors from near and far. While bushfires have had a significant impact in parts of far east and north-east Victoria, Melbourne and many internationally popular destinations are safe and open for visitors.
These include the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Ballarat, Bendigo, the Grampians, Daylesford and many others. Melbourne is hundreds of miles from the fires and continues to attract visitors with world-class culinary and cultural experiences, abundant museums and galleries and a late-night culture that is definitely the most varied and vibrant in Australia.
Many of Victoria’s renowned attractions, including the iconic Twelve Apostles, Phillip Island Nature Park and Peninsula Hot Springs, are located more than 217 miles from the affected communities – further than London to Paris (213 miles).
