Wander with me to discover 6 Hidden Gems

Rugged beaches, Sandstones cliffs, Manicured Gardens and Pristine Coastlines, that pretty well defines Victoria.

With numerous warm days at our disposal and with the extended sunny weekends, you must be hunting for places which you haven’t seen so far?!!

So, here I am to give you the top 6 picks of the Hidden yet stunning locations/Gems I Victoria, which probably you might have missed out or not known before.

I plan to find out at least one such place in Victoria every weekend, sounds interesting oh yes this state offers possibly everything from mountains, beaches, hot springs/ spa or waterfalls.

#Diamond Bay

Perched at a silent curve in the Mornington Peninsula, this place features to be a must-visit destination for a weekend Trip.

The sandstone cliffs and the stony beaches make this coastline nothing less valuable than a Diamond, it definitely stands by its precious name.

Whether your an adventurous person, who loves trail walking or a beach person who loves his/her me time a the beach, this place has something for everyone.

Walk down the trail stairs to get a panoramic view of the Rugged Cliffs, it’s a bit windy always so make sure to carry a jacket along.

I am a big fan of street arts and if your a Melbournian, then you definitely can’t deny the fact how much we love these. Morning Peninsula has plenty of these Street arts too, don’t forget to catch them on the way back from the Diamond Bay. They serve the perfect shots of your Insta-love!

#Cape Schank Lighthouse

Probably one of the best places I have been in Victoria, this place definitely needs a mention, in the weekend Notes. Known for its unspoiled beaches and stunning landscapes.

#Aurthers Seat Lookout

Take a Cable car ride with Family to capture the stunning view of the bay or walk up to the several lookout trials that leads you to an unexplored path.

Whatever you do, you will end up having an adventure, there’s a lot of history attached to this place when Flinders found Aurthers seat and the peninsula.



#Lavendula Farms

Perched on 20 mins drive from the Daylesford central, this Lavendula Swiss farm (Daylesford, Victoria) offers a wonderful location for a family day out. Plan a picnic or just drop by for a morning coffee, kids would love this place and couples would find it soothing to romance around the fields.

Settle down by the shade to feed the swans or see them flocking around while you enjoy the Lavender Scorn, Jam & cream.

This place has its own rustic vibes, which probably takes you back to an era, where you wish to stay a little longer.

The cafe offers a wonderful view of the Lavendula fields, join in for a family celebration or see someone take a vow!

#Albert Park

Possible the best place in the city to unwind, can you image a place in the city which offers such tranquillity? Well, you cant until you have experience Albert park before.

Settle down with a coffee and enjoy the sailing with the Black swans flirting around. Grab a lunch or enjoy a family picnic. This place is certainly on my monthly escape list always.

# Crib Point/French Island

Virgin rocky beaches with amazing sunset views and places to go fishing and camping with the family. This region of the western port is more secluded than the peninsula area and offers perfect tranquillity.

Love the sea? Don’t forget to hop on to the Westen ferries to have a taste of the French Island just 15 mins by the ferry.

If you have been already to the above destinations, let me know what’s your favourite? My favourite is Cape Schanck Light House, the stunning sea cliffs with the Lighthouse view, which I can keep staring for ages.
