Victoria – Australia – Top 5 Places you have to visit

By on 15. Januar 2017

Victoria – Australia, the smallest state in this country, is really fascinating. In some way it is comparable to Europe, but still everthing seems bigger and wider. It is a dream for everyone, who loves calm and beautiful nature. Especially, if you bring some time, you can discover some truely beautiful places. These are my top 5 places to see in Victoria – Australia…

 

Victoria – Australia – Top 5 places you have to visit

At the start of this blog I have to say, that everyone has its own opinion on what they consider to be the best places to visit in Victoria – Australia. The following ones are my top 5. I have chosen them, because I really visited these places and they are by far the most known and in my opinion the most beautiful in whole Victoria – Australia.

Buzzin city of Melbourne – Victoria – Australia

Melbourne is great! I lived there for 3 month. During that time, I really fell in love with this city for many reasons. It is the pivotal point of Victoria – Australia. Everything you can imagine, is possible in Melbourne. There is almost nothing you can not do. It is very arty. It’s full of young and cool people. It has pretty beaches. It is very green. You can visit the zoo, an aquarium or the tennis and footy stadium. It has good transportation links. Melbourne is also a very sporty city. You have many good places to go out to. Aaand, there is always something going on in Melbourne.

Besides that I think it is the most diverse metropole I have seen so far, which still does not loose its beauty, even though it is quite big. Very cool! There must be a reason why it is voted the most livable city on earth a couple times in the last 6 years 😉

Great Ocean Road – The place where I want to live

The Great Ocean Road is one of my favourite places, not only in Victoria – Australia, but maybe from all of the places I have seen so far. It is magical there. It reminds me a bit of the european coastlines, but it is just more beautiful. And everything there seems bigger and stronger. Along the Great Ocean Road you will find many spots, that are worth staying at for some time like Bells Beach and the 12 Apostles.

I went there with 3 german friends – read more here – and I loved it. I really started to get the Travelbug there. The Great Ocean Road is basically a nearly 250 km long road along the coastline of southern Victoria – Australia. Most travellers discover it by car. You can camp on some official camping grounds or do it like us and stay on some dirt roads near some massive cliffs. Just spectecular! And definitely worth a trip.

Grampians in the middle of Victoria – Australia

The Grampians National Park lies circa in the middle of Victoria – Australia. It is a great place for a 1, 2 or 3 day trip. When I was there, a lot of it was burned by a bushfire. So watch out in summer, because that happens occasionally and you do not want to be in there I guess 😉 The Grampians are very beautiful and there is a lot to see. You can spot some different animals (I saw my first wild kangaroo there), go for a hike, visit some waterfalls or have a look at old aboriginal paintings.

Besides that, I recommend to just take some time and get in contact with mother nature itself. If you hike up some bigger hill, you will see the whole beauty from this wonderful piece of nature 🙂 A must see in Victoria – Australia.

Phillip Island – Victoria – Australia – Island of the penguins

This beautiful small island lies east of Melbourne/ south-east in Victoria – Australia. It takes about 1 to 1,5 hours to get there by car. This island is one of the places, that nearly every traveller and a lot of locals visit every year for many reasons. For australians it is the perfect spot to get away from their busy worklife. They probably go there, because it has a lot to see and to do. Tourists also like to go there because of the Penguin parade, the different water sport opportunities, the motor sport race track or to just relax at one of many lovely and quiet beaches.

There is a lot of other things to do as well, but these are the reasons why so many people go there – about 3,5 million per year. For an island with a size of 100 km², 3,5 millon visitors is definitely a lot and in my opinion Phillip Island is something you have to visit in Victoria – Australia.

Wilsons Promontory National Park

This is also one of my favourite spots in entire Australia. Wilsons Promontory lies even further sout-east in Victoria – Australia and is the most southern point of Australia, if you do not count Tasmania. Wilsons Promontory is less visited than Phillip Island, but even more beautiful in my opinion. It is the perfect spot for nature and animal lovers as well as people, who generally like to be in the outdoors.

Because of the many various mini climate areas in this park you can see a lot of different cool stuff, that you would usually not expect. You will find rain and teatree forests and even mangroves. You do not find that to often in Victoria – Australia 😉 Besides that the beauty of this park is absolutely incredible. The beaches, the cliffs, the views from top of the small mountains. So wonderful! Just go there, believe me…

All of that is what makes Victoria – Australia such a beautiful state. It might be the smallest, but it certainly has a lot to discover…

It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍

The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them

They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!
.
I am only here since 6 days and I can already highly recommend to make this one of your top destinations to travel to in 2018 👍

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃

  • Is there anything better than a great sunset by a wonderful beach??? 😀🌅
.
I don't really know 😅
.
I have to admit, however, that I like a pretty sunrise a little more than a sunset to be honest
.
But why?
.
I guess, because a sunrise symbolises a new start 👌
.
A start to a new day
.
A start to a new week
.
A start to a new life
.
A start to whatever you want to be new
.
And that's what life comes down to a lot of times anyway, right? It's about starting things over and over again until they work out the way you want them to 💪
.
TELL ME: What do you like more, a sunset or a sunrise??? 😄

  • Portrait of a Filippino kid at Coron Island 👧
.
You guys already know that I often talk about what you can learn from travelling
.
THIS picture is the perfect example why I do that so often❗
.
Visiting the Philippines and especially seeing the local homeless kids in Coron made me learn something really valuable again
.
Even though these kids literally have nothing, they still seem very happy and they always have a smile on their face
.
The only thing you need to do is to wave, take a picture or just simply talk to them 📷
.
These kids taught me a lot about gratitude and happiness
.
Since I saw them, I try to be grateful for each and every single day, because I don't have to live under these kind of circumstances (and never had to)
.
Plus, if they can be happy with the life they live, then I can do it too!
.
Most people, including me, complain waaay to much about things that are not worth complaining about 😒
.
Sometimes it just needs a situation like seeing some homeless Filippino kids to put things in the right perspective again 🙏

  • Throwing stones around while sitting by a crystal clear swedish river in the middle of nowhere 🌲🙏
.
For me, this is the ultimate example for a perfect timeout
.
I don't know how you guys see it, but I feel that having a proper timeout once in a while gets more and more important in our modern world 🌏
.
Everything gets faster and faster every single day
.
Sometimes it's almost impossible to keep up with the pace
.
I am not saying that hustle or working hard is a bad thing (actually the opposite), but in oder to give a 100 %, you need to be fully focused and energized 💪
.
This is why I try to get my german ass to other countries as much as I can, to just simply be disconnected from the hustle and to recharge my batteries
.
For my next timeout I have Marocco on my list, starting from the upcoming sunday! 😀
.
I will climb North Africa's highest mountain, visit Marocco ' highest waterfall and ride camels through the desert
.
And all that to just simply get my head free and to enjoy life❗
.
TELL ME: How do you disconnected from daily life in the best possible way???

  • One of the moments where I felt completely free was this one 🙏
.
Driving down the great ocean road with a couple of friends .
The pure feeling of freedom I had, was absolutely incredible for me and in my opinion, that's pretty much what every person should aim for 👌
.
Only a couple percent of humans on our planet really have this privilege of being free - time and money wise
.
Being able to decide how you want to spend your day, doing whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, without having anyone telling you that you can't, is the ultimate goal for me ⭐
.
And until I get there I try to get this feeling of freedom as much as I can to fuel my brain 👊
.
This is also why I like traveling so much, because you experience crazy things that give you this feeling
.
Why am I saying this???
.
Because I honestly think that we all need something in our lifes that keeps us going
.
For some it's driving a nice car
.
For others it's buying their own flat
.
For me, it's living life on my own terms
.
And this is why I can only recommend anyone, who thinks in a similar way, to travel foreign countries as much as possible, because it gives you a good glimpse of best feeling in the world - FREEDOM
