Size and Population Comparison

Victoria's landmass of 228,000 square kilometres is about the size of the United Kingdom or a little smaller than the US state of California.

By comparison, Australia's size is roughly equal to mainland USA and a little larger than continental Europe. As a result, the distances and travel time between places of interest can be very great. If you remember this when making your travel plans, you won't be so disappointed if you don't see everything you planned.

Victoria's population is drawn from some 160 different nationalities and number around 4.7 million. Of this number, Melbourne's population is about 3.4 million (2004).
