Yeah, summer is nice and all, but personally we feel Victoria comes alive without the sunburn, mosquitoes, backpackers and other November-March annoyances (just kidding, backpackers, you are very welcome here any time of year). Cosy whiskies by the fire, roasts with red wine at dinner and cutting up the slopes are our idea of a good time – and lucky for us, Victoria has those things in spades.
For some reason, we are feeling a bit of cabin fever this year (wonder why!) and there's no better tonic for that than hair of the dog – an actual cabin, that is. Or if active holidays are your jam, it's time to stretch those legs on the slopes. Whatever kind of winter getaway you're into, here are our favourite spots for a cool-climate caper.
According to advice from the Department of Health, Victorians are currently only allowed to travel for day trips only. From June 1, overnight stays will be allowed across regional Victoria, including hotels, campgrounds and caravan parks. Check with the venue directly to confirm.
