VICTORIA

ESSENTIALS

Getting there Several international airlines ly from London to Melbourne, including Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Etihad and Qatar Airways (from £725; qantas.com.au). Flights take at least 22 hours, including a short transfer in Asia or the Middle East.

Getting around

Central Melbourne has a good network of trams and trains, but the best option for rural Victoria is a rental car. Some locations, such as Powers Lookout and Mount Stirling are accessible only via unsealed roads, so a 4WD is a good idea (from £155 per week; rhinocarhire.com).

Further info

Plan your trip with Lonely Planet’s Melbourne & Victoria guidebook (£14.99; shop.lonelyplanet.com), and ind inspiration and relevant information at visitmelbourne.com. For an evocative history of the Kelly Gang, try Ned Kelly: A Short Life, by historian Ian Jones.

Day 1

Start your bushranging adventure at the Old Melbourne Gaol, where Ned Kelly was hanged (£15;oldmelbournegaol.com.au), then wander the city’s laneways in search of works by Kelly-referencing street artist Regan Tamanui (regantamanui.com). Rest your head at quirky QT Melbourne, a boutique hotel with rooms inspired by contemporary fashion and a handsome rootop bar looking out over the city (from £200;qtmelbourne.com.au).
