Listen to the sounds of Victoria on your next road trip


Visit Victoria and Music Victoria have partnered to engage six artists and bands from Melbourne, the Murray, Grampians, High Country, Great Ocean Road and Gippsland to create unique playlists that reflect their region’s sound.

This initiative celebrates Victoria’s talented musicians and performing arts culture. It is supported by Visit Victoria’s Stay close, go further campaign, encouraging Victorians to turn the music up, hit the road less travelled and explore more of what Melbourne and regional Victoria has to offer.

Meet the makers below:


Melbourne CBD – Evelyn Ida Morris

“The inspiration for my playlist is locally made music that makes me think and see things differently, when listening to it. I advise listeners to pop their headphones on and see how it changes your relationship to the city as you walk around.”

The Murray – Benny Walker

“My inspiration came in the moment, when I reflect on all the good music in my life, especially coming from other First Nations artists, but also I love the Blues, soul, rock, the lot!, The land and my relationship with it is always an inspiration. Music is everything to me, so I created this playlist like a sort of sound-bed to my life that day. Every day is different.”

Yorta Yorta singer Benny Walker shares his favourite destinations along the Murray River.


High Country – This Way North

“Our playlist was created drawing inspiration from the rugged mountain tops, ferny gullies and crisp clear rivers that are present in the high country, alongside the wonderful artists that reside in the valleys.”

The Grampians – Alice Skye

“Gariwerd (the Grampians) and its landscape has a life of its own, this playlist captures my memories of the mountains and waterholes and how I feel about home. Listeners will hear the mixed emotions of deep love, respect, and confusion, all of which is felt, often all at once, when I think about home.”

Wergaia and Wemba Wemba songwriter Alice Skye shares her favourite spots in The Grampians (Gariwerd).


Great Ocean Road – Tom Richardson

“All artists featured on the Great Ocean Road playlist either live or grew up on the rugged south-west end of the Great Ocean Road. Ages & genres are as varied as the Warrnambool weather patterns, but there’s definitely something in the water down here…”

Warrnambool indie artist Tom Richardson shares his favourite spots along the Great Ocean Road.


Gippsland – Harry Hook Is Real

“Gippslanders are an unexpectedly diverse bunch, united by the natural wonder of the place they call home. This place is big, mountains to sea big, and ancient, culturally and ecologically ancient.  I have chosen an eclectic bunch of songs by eclectic Gippslanders or people inspired by Gippsland that meander through the broad spectrum of emotions you can feel in a place this big and this ancient.”
