Today, Victoria is one of the most vibrant hubs of modern Australian culture and attracts visitors from both Australia and abroad. Glampers on holiday here will have no problems filling their days with different outdoor adventures—from exploring along the Great Ocean Road and wine tasting through the Yarra Valley to spending a few days in the hills near Ballarat.

Best time of year to visit Victoria

Australia may be notorious for its high temperatures during summer, but thankfully, Victoria ranks a little lower on the thermometer than its neighboring states. When planning a summer trip, be sure to remember that Victoria still has an average temperature of 26° Celsius (80° Fahrenheit), with some extreme summer days reaching nearly 37°C (100° F). Fortunately, there are numerous ways for glampers to escape the heat in Victoria—Melbourne, Bells Beach, Torquay, and Phillip Island all offer vast bodies of water for glampers to cool down in. Winters here are mild, and it rarely drops below 6°C (44°F) in June, the coldest month in Australia.
