Cutting edge design, culture, cuisine and some of the country's premier sporting events characterize Victoria. Melbourne is abuzz with boutiques, eat streets, entertainment, and you are spoilt for choice when it comes to nightlife. Not far from town, the Great Ocean Road meanders through some of the countries best surf beaches, olive groves, vineyards and quiet country villages awash with spectacular rugged scenery. This is where a horse race is as stylish as the fashion festivals gaining international acclaim and where you can watch penguins parade or high octane performance vehicles compete all on the same island.

Dedicated to the soldiers lost in World War I, the Great Ocean Road is a national icon. One of the world’s most scenic drives, it takes visitors past surfing’s legendary Bells Beach, the tourist hub of Lorne, and the rock formations of the Twelve Apostles, ending at the whale watching centre of Warrnambool. For a quality Great Ocean Road hotel, stay with Mantra.
