Melbourne is a magical city. But Go Beyond Melbourne and you’ll discover the pure alchemy of four extraordinary regions. Travelling between them is simply effortless – and what you discover along the way will stay with you forever.
The Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges, Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsula, Geelong and the Bellarine. Four very different regions, four totally different experiences which you’ll only fully discover when you spend a few days beyond the city.
You can travel from mist-wreathed mountains and forests to perfect white sandy bays in just 90 minutes. Float over Yarra Valley vineyards in a hot air balloon at dawn, then watch Phillip Island’s penguins waddle up the beach that evening. Explore historic villages – perhaps Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula then cruise across Port Phillip Bay on a sleek vehicular ferry to Queenscliff on the Bellarine.
And there’s no need to waste time returning to the city each night and hassling with peak hour traffic…you simply motor on to your next destination in about 90 minutes. And there’s accommodation which you simply can’t experience in the city…vineyard estates, historic mansions, peaceful country retreats, luxury seaside apartments, romantic B&Bs.
