It is home to the well-known Bells Beach and the birthplace of surf brands Rip curl and Quicksilver.

Still if surfing isn’t quite your thing, there is the coastline offers and a variety of beautiful walks, you can hire bikes to make your way slowly along the Great Ocean Road and finally Victoria is home to some of Australia’s best wineries with the local Mount Duneed only a short drive away.
