Melbourne and the comparatively compact state of Victoria occupies a little pocket of Australia that’s just made for road-tripping, with fabulously photogenic highlights around every bend.

Just beyond the city you can experience the stunning vistas along the Great Ocean Road, iconic wildlife including kangaroos and koalas, plus the pristine beauty of Wilsons Promontory, Lakes Entrance and the sprawling Gippsland Lakes.

With daily flights on the award-winning Qantas A380 from London Heathrow to Melbourne via Dubai, and with great fares on offer, discover Melbourne for yourself.
