Villages

Wander Victoria

Some of the greatest travel discoveries happen when you least expect them. When you slow down, head off the beaten track, take a left, a sharp left and another left and leave any agenda well behind.

That's why Victoria's villages are so enticing – you don't know what you're going to find, but you know it'll be good, and even better, it'll be your secret to tell or not.

Secrets like where to find the best vanilla slices, an echidna waddling across a sleepy road, craft gin and bakery sandwiches, vintage boutiques, second-hand records, artisan salt, postcard-perfect front gardens and captivating front-room galleries.

The pretty landscapes are inarguable, and we know there are some incredible restaurants and wineries dotted around Victoria's regions. Take time to wander beyond these headlines and discover the quieter stories waiting to be heard in tiny villages. There are only 20 people living in Walhalla, so pull up a stool at the local pub and get to know the real stories of this tiny town.

If you fancy your chances you'll pull up in a village in time for a quirky local festival, like the Yackandandah Spring Migration Festival or the monthly Strzelecki Stringbusters performance in tiny Yinnar.

So give yourself some time to meander just a little further afield and you'll find everything you didn't know you were looking for in Victoria's villages. Once you've started exploring, you can't stop.
