"Life in Australia's Garden State" State of Victoria Favorite Tip by keeweechic

State of Victoria General: 43 reviews and 46 photos


Favorite thing: I first moved to Melbourne from New Zealand 16 years ago and settled into the lifestyle very quickly. After a few years living there I moved to Singapore for a while, only to return to Melbourne and live there another few years. Melbourne is a great place to visit and to live. There is so much to do, the range of arts and cultural activities are huge, there is always something going on in and around the city. I cannot even begin to stress the fabulous restaurants that you can find in Melbourne. There are also the wineries scattered around Victoria to visit and sample. The State has most things that you could ever want from great skiing, to nice beaches (although not all), mountain ranges and valleys and rugged coastline.

The only thing not going for it is the famous Melbourne weather. You can easily have 4 seasons in one day. It can get really cold in winter (although not snow) and go to the extreme in Summer when the wind blows down from the dessert. Within half an hour the temperature can drop 10C or more. I hope to return to live there again one day.
