Panoramic views over Griffiths Island and its coastline from the top of a sand dune. Early in the 19th century a whaling station was established on the island. In 1835 the island was purchased by John Griffiths after whom the island is now named.

Ceci est un aperçu de Victoria

Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories.

Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline.

Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day.

Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
