You’ve had your fill of typical beachside holidays and whirlwind weekends in the city–sometimes you need a dose of something a little simpler. For that, there are countryside and farm stays around Victoria where the grass is literally greener.
These chilled-out spots let you take time out in the tranquillity of lush landscapes, so far from the stresses of the city that you’ll forget they even exist. Rest in the company of cackling kookaburras and feast on locally sourced produce–maybe even picked by your own hand–all in the fresh open air. You’ll wander grape-laden vineyards to sample expertly crafted wines, and breathe in the natural perfume of delicate wildflowers on an early morning walk.
It could be that the sumptuous furnishings of an alpine apartment in the High Country will call you out beyond the city’s borders. Perhaps your pick will be a luxury farm stay in Victoria where a centuries-old cellar door leads you through to a generous tasting session.
Or, maybe you’re simply seeking some spa time by the quiet beauty of a shimmering lake. Whatever your needs, country holidays in Victoria have never been more inviting, so pack a bag and head for the hills because the serenity of the simple life awaits.
