Cheap flights to Victoria

A rough triangular-shaped state that lies in the southernmost of the eastern mainland of Australia, Victoria is half an hour ahead of its southern counterpart because it keeps up with the time of neighbouring South Wales and Tasmania.

The so-called “The Garden State” lives to its motto of “peace and prosperity”. Victoria rules under a constitutional monarch run by a governor and a premier. Victoria was named in honour of Queen Victoria who reigned in the British throne for 14 years since its establishment in 1851.

Victoria is composed of eight cities and six towns. The list of cities include Melbourne (the capital city), Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Shepparton, Swan Hill, Warrnambool, and Wodonga, while the towns are Bullarto, Euroa, Mildura, Wangaratta, Apollo Bay, and Daylesford.

Tourism in Victoria are brought by major events held, specifically with cultural and sports tourism. These events are mostly done in Melbourne. Other cities, however, also have these events like the Phillip Island where the V8 Supercars and Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix are held. The Australian International Airshow at Geelong and the Grand Annual Steeplechase at Warrnambool are also some of the examples.

Overall, Victoria has made a huge impact to the whole of Australia in terms of tourism, economy, and governance.
