Victoria’s popular tourist destinations are safe for visitors

Victoria’s most popular tourist destinations and attractions are open, safe and welcoming visitors.

While bushfires have had a significant impact in parts of far east and north-east Victoria, Melbourne and many internationally popular destinations are safe and welcoming visitors. These include the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Ballarat, Bendigo, the Grampians, Daylesford and many others.

Melbourne is hundreds of miles from the fires and continues to offer visitors world-class culinary and cultural experiences, museums and galleries and a late night culture that is definitely the country’s most varied and vibrant.

Many of Victoria’s well-known attractions, including the iconic Twelve Apostles, Phillip Island Nature Park and Peninsula Hot Springs, are located more than 217 miles from the affected communities.

In the weeks and months to come, Victorians will continue to rally behind the resilient fire-affected communities to help them recover as quickly as possible and encourage visitors to return as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Right now, the best way to support the Victorian tourism and communities, is by visiting Melbourne and regional areas that have not been impacted by the bushfires, in which there are many wonderful places.

Travellers coming to Victoria are advised to seek the most up to date information prior to departure from their accommodation and tourism providers, and to check Visit Victoria’s website for areas not impacted by bushfires.
