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.

Questa è una vista generale di 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.
