The state of Victoria in Australia is home to a host of natural wonders as well as cultural and entertainment attractions, making it a great holiday destination for everyone of all ages. The best way to savour all it has to offer at your own pace? Go with Aussie specialist Chan Brothers Travel on the 7D Glamping Up Melbourne & Beyond Self-drive Convoy With Mediacorp Artiste Jeffrey Xu.
Here are four experiences you mustn’t miss during your road trip in Victoria.
1. Don’t camp; glamp!
Spend two nights in a tent at luxury glamping retreat, Iluka Retreat & Camp. Set among rolling hills and a wetland lake, this place features tents furnished with fluffy rugs, fresh linens and comfy mattresses. You can even request your own private campfire for a smores cookout.
2. Take a hike
Take an afternoon to explore the quaint little surf town of Anglesea along the Great Ocean Road. Pick a section of the Surf Coast Walk to explore – the Point Roadknight walk is an easy hike that leads you from the town to the idyllic Point Roadknight beach, while the more challenging Angelsea Heath track brings you into heathlands where you might spot kangaroos and wallabies. Don’t forget to grab a treat from the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery where you can enjoy decadent desserts and hand-crafted ice creams, and take home a box of chocolate treats.
3. Restore that spring in your step
Soak away your aches and pains at Peninsula Hot Springs. Located on Mornington Peninsula, the naturally heated spring flows from an underground aquifer 637 metres below ground, and is rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. Head to the bath house, which offers everything from a hilltop pool and reflexology walk, to a Turkish steam room and cave pool.
4. Go tree surfing
Exhilarating experiences await at natural wonderland, the Enchanted Adventure Garden. Known as “the home of tree surfing”, it offers top-notch treetop surfing activities suitable for all ages and physical abilities. Conquer suspended rope and swing bridges up to 10 metres above the ground, or take a swing on the 12 metre-high Tarzan swing and land in a giant cargo net. You could also test yourself on the climbing wall, or speed down zip-lines that range from 40 to 100 metres in length.
