5 Incredible Victorian Weekend Getaways

With international travel off the cards, there’s never been a better time for us Aussies to explore our own backyard. To celebrate the launch of the Brand-New Mazda BT-50, we’ve pulled together five incredible weekend getaways across Victoria to help you get off the grid, relax, and enjoy this beautiful country of ours.

The Mornington Peninsula

Just over an hour out of Melbourne’s CBD, we go deep into the Mornington Peninsula and discover that the roads well-travelled still have more than a few surprise gems up their sleeves.


Daylesford & The Macedon Ranges

Less than 100km north-west of Melbourne, at the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, lie natural springs and waterfalls, historical townships, gardens, world-class producers and a burgeoning art scene that make up the quaint Daylesford-Hepburn-Springs region.


The Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley may be synonymous with Victoria's wine country, but as the wettest region in Victoria it’s also home to spectacularly lush scenery, first-class produce and unique wildlife. The Yarra Valley region is deserving of your attention over an entire weekend.


South Gippsland & Wilsons Prom

When you make the trek to South Gippsland and Wilsons Prom, you’ll be happy to have waited for a public holiday or have sacrificed a precious day of annual leave. Every inch of this regional paradise is totally worth it, and with its endearing towns, an abundance of wildlife and a warren of hiking trails and sandy beaches, it’s not hard to see why.


The Great Ocean Road

Along this world-famous coastal highway, you’ll find iconic beaches and surf breaks, panoramic outlooks, and a drive that urges you to continue on the road until it meets its end. The Great Ocean Road is a crowd favourite for locals and tourists alike; dotted with beauty, adventure and both high-profile and low-key gems all along the way.
