Clarity, Peace, Serenity. Watching the sun set over the Murray river never disappoints. Although foggy, the reflection is still so clear. Gorgeous photo via @tina_wilsonn #visitthemurray #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace

The Pinnacle lookout in the Grampians National Park truly gives hikers one of those 'wow' moments. This particular capture by @samabellcreative was at sunrise, when golden light cloaked the canyon and seemingly precariously perched boulders. 📸 : @samabellcreative @thegrampians #grampians #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace

New day, new snow. This stunning snap of the sun rising over Mount Hotham was taken after more than six inches of fresh snow fell on the mountain. Well known for its steep and exhilarating terrain, @hothamalpineresort also has nice and easy introductory slopes for first timers to learn and become familiar with chairlifts. 📸 : @hockster111 @seehighcountry@vicalpineresorts #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #seehighcountry

There's nothing quite like capturing the beauty of fresh snowfall, like this snap from @e.kadri in @daylesfordmacedonranges Less than an hour by car, north-west of Melbourne, the Macedon area is known for glorious gardens, old-world mansions and flowing waterways. It doesn't always snow - the conditions have to be just right and they were just that over the weekend. 📸 : @e.kadri #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #daylesfordmacedonlife

An iconic piece of Australian coastline combines with Mother Nature to produce this stunning image from @brenton_captures Constant erosion of the limestone cliffs off the mainland gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed, rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore to create what we now know as the 12 Apostles. 📸 : @brenton_captures#visitvictoria #greatoceanroad #yourhappyspace

2019 marks the 130th birthday of Melbourne's first electric tram. With over 250 kilometres of double track, 493 operational trams, 24 routes, and 1,763 tram stops, Melbourne's tram network helps to move people in and around the city and well as through iconic neighbourhoods like St Kilda, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Richmond and  Footscray. This particularly stunning image of the Collins Street tram was captured by @adzventurers , taking advantage of the puddles left but an evening shower. 📸 : @adzventurers #visitvictoria #melbourne #visitmelbourne #melbournetwist

Located one hour east of Melbourne, @PuffingbillyrailWay is one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. From it's iconic open-sided carriages, passengers get the feeling of the wind in their hair as they wind through the lush rain forest and beautiful fern gullies of the magnificent Dandenong Ranges National Park.

A (reading ) room with a view. One of the world's great libraries, @library_vic turns 165 years old this year and has never looked better. With a new renovations due for completion in late November and the Victoria Gallery opening in October, this is much more than a library showcasing thousands of significant items reflecting Victoria's cultural and social heritage from John Batman's journal to Ned Kelly's armour. This stunning capture by @nickxjones_ is from a balcony overlooking the famous Latrobe Reading Room and is a favourite for visitors looking to get that perfect shot for the 'gram. 📸 : @nickxjones_ #visitvictoria #melbourne #visitmelbourne #melbournetwist

Whatever you're looking for, you're sure to be enchanted by the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Grampians.  From walking tracks leading to dazzling waterfalls to wildlife and picture perfect panoramic lookouts (like this famous view from Boroka Lookout pictured above by @henryalekna ). The Grampians also boast celebrated local wine at cellar doors, multi-award-winning restaurants and an extraordinary art scene in galleries indoors and out. 📸 : @henryalekna#visitvictoria #grampians #yourhappyspace

Street art never gets old in Melbourne....quite literally, as there are always new pieces of work going up, especially in the popular Hosier Lane. Sometimes they reference the world's current affairs, sometimes it's personal and other times it's a reflection of pop culture. There's been lots of hype around the latest Lion King movie, so no surprise at this great piece of work by Melbourne artist @jonydee80 Photo by @milymiss #visitmelbourne

For a scenic drive from Melbourne, travel east along the South Gippsland Highway for lush green rolling hills. Just 2 hours from the city, you'll discover cute towns like Loch, featuring the rustic @lochbrewery and the homely @oliveatloch cafe. A little further afield, there's the town of Korumburra, where you can stop for brunch at @theboroughcafeandpantry and enjoy one of the best toasties using local @visitgippsland produce. Great capture by @arjun travel.photography from his journey towards the small fishing town of Port Albert #visitgippsland #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace

If you're looking for an outback experience, head to the far north-west corner of Victoria to Murray-Sunset National Park. The park is considered the second largest national park in Victoria and is known to be relatively untouched. Although it's a 6 hour drive from Melbourne to this part of @visitthemurray , you're bound to find plenty of space to yourself for bushwalking and camping, and depending on the weather, the lakes might be glistening pink due to their salt levels.

Rain, hail or shine, the city lights don't stop in Melbourne. There's a buzz with people crossing paths on the way to a night out and the chatter of crowds huddling into cosy bars. Need an idea of somewhere to start? @barmargauxmelbourne is the latest underground bar with French food, champagne and cocktails. They even accept bookings and stay open until 5am. Find it by looking out for some nondescript stairs ...of course. Photo by @photosbyraffy #visitmelbourne

Make sure to explore more than just the Twelve Apostles on your trip along @visitgreatoceanroad Don't rush, satisfy your curiosity, keep an eye for turn-offs and stop at a random lookout. If you travel 15 minutes beyond the Twelve Apostles, you'll find The Arch (pictured ), which looks even better when dramatic winter waves start to swell.

We talk about @thenightmarket a lot but make sure to visit @vicmarket during the day too. The market opened in 1878 - so locals have been buying their fresh produce here for more than 140 years! Not only is it the go-to-place for locals, but a place to experience Melbourne's multicultural influences. Sample the market's famous American doughnuts, warm up with a Sri Lankan curry, browse the quirky retail shops or sip a true Melbourne coffee at @marketlane Make sure to check their trading hours before you visit - they close Mondays and Wednesdays.

Another charming puddle photography shot, this time captured in the regional town of @explorebendigo Located 2 hours out from Melbourne, this area is known for its historic buildings, picturesque gardens, trams and art.

Raining in Melbourne? Find a laneway hideout - there's plenty to choose from. Pictured here is Liverpool St, located between Little Bourke St and Bourke St in the city. Here you can choose from a variety of restaurants, from the modern Asian at @ricepaprscrs to sake and soba noodles at @shimbashi_soba_melbourne If it's simply a chilly night, there are outdoor seats and heaters too, so you can truly experience the laneway vibe.

Located 90 minutes from Melbourne, @phillipisland is a popular daytrip from Melbourne due to @phillipislandnp 's Penguin Parade. But this time of year is also known for whale sightings due to their annual migration. Have you ever seen a whale around Phillip Island? If you want to see more of the island, visit @natgeoau 's Eco-Traveller hub for some short episodes focusing on eco-tourism. Photo via @tavishhhphoto #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #phillipisland

Why get your head out of the clouds when the clouds look like this? Great sunrise view at the top of Mount William in @thegrampians , a popular national park for visitors about 3-4 hours drive from Melbourne. Considering the distance, it's a great idea to spend a few nights in the area to tick off popular hikes or so you can explore great restaurants, wineries, shops and distilleries on the way through @visitballarat and @daylesfordmacedonranges Photo via @samabellcreative #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #grampians

A calming winter sunset caught at Sorrento on @officialmorningtonpeninsula , a 1.5 hour drive from Melbourne. Sorrento is popular for its beaches in summer as well as swimming tours that give you the chance to see seals and dolphins. However, in winter we also get excited for another form of wildlife - whales. Hop on the @searoadferries that run between Sorrento and Queenscliff (across the bay ), and try your luck at spotting one of these mighty creatures during their annual migration. Tip: you can also bring your car and/or dog on the ferry. Photo via @glennslens au #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #findyourwaymorningtonpeninsula

If you're ever up in @seehighcountry on the way to @brightandsurrounds , stop by the Red Stag Deer and Emu Farm in Eurobin. It's a unique experience, being able to feed the animals with Mount Buffalo National Park in the background. Not an animal person? @ringerreefwinery and @feathertop_wine are just down the road - enjoy a glass of red and local cheeses whilst you gaze at misty views of the countryside instead.

Walk aimlessly around Melbourne and colourful walls will pop out at you from the most unexpected places - not just Hosier Lane. This was taken in Whitehart Lane, just off Little Bourke St, which leads to the open air bar @whitehartmelbourne Also in the same block - @littleramenbar for noodle soup, some of Melbourne's best dumplings at @shanghaistreet mel, amazing pasta at @tipo_00 , hidden bar/barber/cafe/shoemaker @capsofindustry and the list goes on and on...!

Love the mountains? Drive four hours north-east of Melbourne and visit Mount Buffalo National Park in Victoria's alpine region. Complete the short walk to The Horn to get 360 views of the Australian Alps or chase waterfalls on the Rollasons or Eurobin Falls Tracks. In winter, there's occasionally snowfall too if you want to get a glimpse and go tobogganing! Great photo via @robmorellophoto @seehighcountry #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace

@VisitBallarat lies 1.5-2 hours west of Melbourne and is well-known for its gold rush history. The old buildngs transport you into the 1800's with exteriors like @artgalbal and @hermajballarat , but the city is also exploring a new era with modern businesses hiding within this historic town. Brewery @hoptemple lies at the end of an umbrella-lined laneway whilst hatted restaurant @underbarballarat might go unnoticed in its nondescript building. If you've visited Ballarat before, time to visit again and discover what's underneath the surface. Photo via @chip_shots #visitballarat #visitvictoria #yourhppyspace

Despite the rain, there's just something about the city lights in winter that seems photogenic. Don't worry if you happen to get a day like this, there's plenty of places to explore indoors. Within walking distance of Flinders St Station, you can see the Terracotta Warriors at @ngvmelbourne , where they also have late opening hours and live music for #NGVFridayNights More of a musical fan? Book tickets to see @comefromawayau , opening in July, and explore the hidden wine bars and restaurants of our East End Theatre District. Photo via @jenny fuji #visitmelbourne

When you reach the edge of the world... or should we say state? @visitthemurray and you'll find yourself in limbo between Victoria and New South Wales. You'll find these border towns don't give this a second thought and drive, ride and paddle freely across the invisible line. Mildura is about a 6-hour drive from Melbourne - although it's quite a distance, you'll find yourself amidst the unique Australian bushland. Explore the pink lakes of Murray-Sunset National Park, the sand dunes of Perry Sandhills, then hire a houseboat and catch a pink sunset over the iconic river.

Take a moment to look away from your phone and look up when you're next in Melbourne. Look out for the building on the left of this picture, Manchester Unity Building, across from Melbourne Town Hall. It was built in 1932 and is a towering piece of Art Deco with a New Gothic style facade. What's inside now? Dentists, jewellery stores and one of our tiniest cafes ( @switchboardcafe ). Take a peek inside or book yourself on a tour. Photo by @helena klapas #visitmelbourne

Whether you're about to embark on the famous @visitgreatoceanroad or you're going to explore the wineries of @visitgeelongbellarine , make sure to stop by the town of Anglesea in between. Home to popular surf beaches, the roaring ocean is hypnotising to watch. Although these places are full of atmosphere in summer, in winter it transforms into a peaceful getaway. Warm up with a coastal walk or enjoy the views from a lookout, then treat yourself with a hot chocolate at @greatoceanrdchocolaterie Tip: they're also running a Brownie Festival until June 23.

Don't you find it intriguing to see the same place in four different seasons? @thegrampians becomes darker and moodier in winter, but remains just as captivating. Plus, after going down and up the stairs from Mackenzie Falls, you have an excuse to indulge in local produce and craft beer at new brewery, @paper_scissors_rock_brew_co , or cheese and wine at surrounding wineries like @pomonalestate Photo via @vastdepthphotography #visitvictoria #yourhappyspace #grampians
