Victoria has a diverse geography, including coastal areas, mountain ranges, and fertile plains. The state is known for its cultural richness, with Melbourne being a hub for arts, fashion, and cuisine. The Great Ocean Road, one of the world's most scenic coastal drives, stretches along Victoria's southwest coast, showcasing stunning natural landmarks like the Twelve Apostles. The capital city of Victoria is Melbourne, which is also the second-most populous city in Australia, and where the AYA Global Congress will be held.
