Victoria in business

SHOW your support to Victoria's tourism industry as soon as you can.

This wonderful state is still open for business and needs our patronage to help it get back on its feet after a devastating month of loss and tragedy.

On March 27-29, the fantastic Apollo Bay Music Festival kicks off, transforming the beautiful seaside town on the spectacular Great Ocean Road from a sleepy village to a thriving concert venue.

An amazing line up of local and international stars will keep things jumping with jazz, rock, hip hop, gospel and country - whatever your musical taste, you'll find someone to bring you joy.

Go to www.apollobaymusicfestival.com for the full program, accommodation guide and ticket booking.

Also coming up is the Autumn Eucalypt Festival at the Royal Botanic Gardens' Cranbourne Australian Garden.

From April 3 to 13, the Australian Garden will offer nature lovers the chance to explore 363ha of untouched heathland, wetland and woodland.

A range of fun walks, workshops and family activities will feature in this wonderful part of the world, only 50 minutes drive from Melbourne, on the way to Philip Island.

This amazing new garden features a gallery of exhibition gardens, sculpture and displays - all highlighting the beauty and diversity of our Australian landscape.
