Victoria is located in Australia’s southeastern coast and lies between the states of
New South Wales and
South Australia. Victoria is most accessible either by plane or car. Victoria has two main airports, Avalon and Melbourne, and you have the option to fly into either airport, depending on where you’re flying from and what you intend to do in Victoria. The Melbourne airport takes most international flights and is best if you are intending to stay within the capital city of
Melbourne. The Avalon airport takes mostly domestic flights and is best if travelling to Victoria’s outlying regions, or for discounted flights from other capital cities like
Hobart. Driving to Victoria is also another alternative as the scenery along the way is breathtaking. For either option, click on Direct Flights for the best discounted rates on flights and car hire.
