Weekends are precious. That's why we like to make the most of them. And sometimes, when we're feeling particularly adventurous, we like to chuck a bag in the boot of the car and turn those two days off into mini holidays. Between the peninsula, the Dandenongs, high country and world-class wine regions, Victoria offers up so many ways to take a weekender that you're going to need our help to choose a place to pitch your tent (or slip into clean sheets at a B&B). Start with the suggestions below.
Just an hour out of Melbourne, the Peninsula provides the perfect combo of coastal parks, prime produce and Pinot Noir.
Head to the hills for scones and tea, cosy cottages and Narnia-like forest views.
Ride bikes through forests, stay in a cosy old miner's cottage and redefine the length of a long lunch.
Spend a few days wrapped in nature, natural mineral springs and a blanket of good food and wine.
With microbreweries, award-winning designer boutique hotels and strong restaurant game, Canberra ain't the beige capital it used to be.
An outback town where legal two-up and turmeric lattes exist in harmony.
Discover the city's small galleries, crafty cafes and fried chicken.
Blockbuster-capacity galleries, sculpture trails, designer hotels — Albury's shifted gear.
Get a soul massage in country Victoria.
We might be able to convince you to visit with just one word. That word is 'wine'.
