As Jon Snow once said "Winter is coming", some would say it's already here. It's time to start planning some fun weekend trips to make the most of the season and pairing with the right outfit for the location. From cozy winter escapes to thrilling outdoor adventures, there are plenty of places to explore in and around Victoria. Nomadic Paradise brings you the best of the outdoors in Victoria, Australia with our picks to be on trend while being immersed in the elements.
Bright: If you're looking for a picturesque winter escape, look no further than the town of Bright. Nestled in the heart of Victoria's High Country, this charming town is known for its stunning autumn foliage and winter snowscapes. Take a scenic drive to Mount Buffalo National Park and explore its snow-covered trails or cozy up by the fire with a hot choccy in one of the town's many cafes. My favourite road trip hoodie this season is the Lumberton Relaxed Hooded Jumper. Pair with your favourite jeans for the look of the high country.
Phillip Island: Just a short drive from Melbourne, Phillip Island is a great destination for a weekend getaway. In addition to its famous penguin parade, the island is home to stunning coastal walks, wineries, and farm-to-table restaurants. Take a scenic drive along the coast or explore the island's many nature reserves.
Daylesford: Known for its natural mineral springs, Daylesford is the perfect destination for a relaxing winter weekend. Spend your days soaking in the hot springs or exploring the town's many art galleries and boutiques. Be sure to try the local cuisine, which features fresh, seasonal produce.
Mount Buller: For those who love skiing and snowboarding, Mount Buller is a must-visit destination this winter. With over 300 hectares of skiable terrain, this alpine resort offers something for everyone, from beginner slopes to black diamond runs. After a day on the slopes, warm up with a bevvy at one of the mountain's many cafes or restaurants. The Bjorkdale Pull Over Jumper is the perfect addition under the black Rossburn Quilted Ski Jacket to keep you warm on the slopes. Who said fashion had to be sacrificed to stay warm?
The Great Ocean Road: The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia's most iconic destinations, and it's just as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer. Take a drive along the coast and marvel at the stunning scenery, including the Twelve Apostles and the Loch Ard Gorge. Be sure to stop in the charming coastal towns along the way for a taste of the local cuisine.
From cozy winter escapes to outdoor adventures, there's something for everyone. So, pack your bags, hit the road, and explore all that Victoria has to offer this winter season.
