Visit Victoria is the principal tourism and events company for Victoria, Australia. The Australian state’s compact size gives visitors the opportunity to not only explore urban cityscapes, but also other breathtaking regions including the Great Ocean Road, Yarra Valley wine region, “The Penguin Parade” at Phillip Island, outdoor adventure and walking trails in the Grampians, and the iconic colorful beach boxes of the Mornington Peninsula. However, one of Victoria’s most powerful ambassadors is its extraordinary capital. Melbourne boasts superb restaurants, café culture, theatre, unparalleled nature experiences, diverse art and cultural offerings, which is why it’s no surprise that it was voted the “World’s Most Livable City” six years in a row. Known as the events capital of Australia, Melbourne hosts a year-round calendar of outstanding international events including the Australian Open Tennis (Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific), Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, and most recently, was chosen as the second international host of the 2017 World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.
