  • National Gallery of Victoria: The National Gallery of Victoria is the oldest public art gallery in Australia. Founded in 1861 - only ten years after the colony of Victoria itself - as an appendage to the Public Library in Swanston St in Melbourne, the Museum of Art (as it was then called) first opened its doors boasting a typically Victorian melange. 'Casts of the Elgin marbles, seventy antique statues (also casts), sixty-three busts and a quantity of other objects' formed the core of the display, mostly reproduction, chosen to edify and elevate 'public taste' in the remote but already wealthy colony.
  • Phiilip Island Penguin Parade: The Penguin Parade is located on Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia, only 140 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. It is part of Phillip Island Nature Park. The area is a reserve designed to protect and promote awareness of Little Penguins (previously called Fairy Penguins).
  • Puffing Billy Railway: Australia's unique century-old steam train is still running on its original mountain track in the scenic Dandenong Ranges, only 40 km east of Melbourne, Victoria. Running every day of the year (except Christmas Day), spectacular mountain views and cool fern gullies abound along the winding track from Belgrave to Emerald Lake (Lakeside) and Gembrook. Passengers have a range of tour options to choose from - journeys of one hour to a full day's adventure.
  • Queen Victoria Market: The Queen Victoria Market is more than just Melbourne's shopping mecca - it is a historic landmark, a tourist attraction and an institution for Melburnians. For more than a century, this vast and vibrant centre of trade and commerce has served the consumer needs of more than 130,000 shoppers a week.
  • Rialto Towers Observation Deck: The Observation Deck is located on the 55th floor of the landmark Rialto Towers, the tallest office building in the Southern Hemisphere. The Observation Deck offers spectacular 360 degree views of Melbourne and surrounds - which make it the ideal place to discover "the world's most livable City".
  • Victorian Zoos: Welcome to Victoria's Three Great Zoos. This website features Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and Victoria's Open Range Zoo at Werribee. It provides details on facilities and experiences for visitors as well as providing detailed animal information and images.
  • Victoria's National Parks and Reserves: ParkWeb provides information on the parks, rivers, marine areas and heritage properties Parks Victoria manages, downloadable publications and links to a wide range of park management websites.
