small state still hides travel se­crets

North East Tourist News - - Myrtleford -

AUS­TRALIAN Trav­eller has un­earthed a num­ber of “hid­den gems” in Vic­to­ria, pub­lished dur­ing au­tumn in the col­lec­tor’s edi­tion, “100 amaz­ing places you haven’t been to (yet)”.

The list was compiled by the Aus­tralian Trav­eller team af­ter in­ter­view­ing hun­dreds of well-known and well-trav­elled Aus­tralians.

It re­veals their favourite se­crets, with many sur­prises.

For­mer Wal­laby turned jour­nal­ist and proud New South Welsh­men Peter FitzSim­mons chose Vic­to­ria’s High Coun­try gem Beech­worth, de­scrib­ing the her­itage­laden town as “the most beau­ti­ful town in Aus­tralia”.

“It proves just how many amaz­ing places there are in Aus­tralia when Vic­to­ria, small by size and large by pop­u­la­tion, can have so many ‘hid­den se­crets’.

“Tourism Vic­to­ria are so right when they say ‘you will love ev­ery piece of Vic­to­ria,’” says Aus­tralian Trav­eller founder Quentin Long.
