We’re heading southeast this week into the state of Victoria. Not only home to one of the best places to live in the world (looking at you, Melbourne), Victoria is also the second largest state in Australia which means tons of space for gorgeous national parks, magnificent mountain ranges and all the best in beaches and wineries. And while living here may be on the pricey side, we’ve gathered a handful of the cheapest houses in Victoria so you can have your pick of lifestyles.
From beach towns to city dwelling and rural lands, each of these houses gives you the choice of how you want to live. After all, buying a home is one of the major financial decisions in our lives, and we want to make sure living by the beach is what we truly want… or was it living near the CBD? Or was it getting away from the city?
