Luxury Hotels in Victoria

There’s more to Victoria than Melbourne. This second smallest of Australia’s states is big on variety. Around Victoria you can find merino sheep, historic towns, endless coastlines, and snow-capped mountains.

And while Melbourne may contain most of the state’s 5-star hotels, if you travel further afield in Victoria you will easily find somewhere luxurious to stay where you will be pampered and looked after in a way that only Victorians can do. With a rich heritage of gold-mining and pastoralism, Victoria offers travellers an exceptional mix of luxury and country hospitality.

It is surprising where luxury hotels can be found in Victoria especially if you visit the state’s wine regions, such as the Yarra Valley, or the ski resorts dotted about the Snowy Mountains. Along Victoria’s coastline, in places like Croajingolong National Park, you will find eco retreats and boutique resorts in the most out-of-the-way places where you can experience the spectacular scenery and unique wildlife of this part of Australia.
