    Victoria is the smallest of the mainland states in Australia. Around 5 million people live in Victoria, which makes it heavily populated by Australian standards. Almost 75 % of people live in Melbourne, the largest city and state capital. Victoria is bordered by Tasmania to the south, New South Wales to the north and South Australia to the west. Victoria was named after Queen Victoria, the monarch at that time.
    Victoria stuttered into life with the first permanent European settlement at Portland in the year 1834. In 1851 Victoria seceded from New South Wales. Within weeks gold was discovered and prosperity and the new state’s population boomed. The countryside is still littered with magnificent public buildings and hotels.
    Victoria has for a small state a lot of attractions. The Great Ocean Road, the Wilson’s Promontory, the Goldfields are amongst the best known but there are also wineries, coastal resorts, the inland ports of the Murray and some wonderful mountain scenery. With comfortable distances to cover and good roads, Victoria is an easy state to explore.
