Eight of New Zealand's best-known bloggers, social media heavyweights (and even the stars of The Bachelor NZ) recently flew across to Melbourne with Qantas to get to know the edgy, sophisticated city and the state of Victoria beyond.

Art Green and Matilda Rice from The Bachelor, food blogger Delaney Mes, photographer Lola Wright,  travel blogger Megan Singleton, health and wellness bloggers Julia & Libby Matthews and social media style guru Aimee Fleur Young wasted no time in exploring the best bits of Melbourne – the street art, coffee culture, rooftop bars, galleries, boutiques and the labyrinths of hidden laneways and arcades

After indulging their senses in Melbourne, the eight Kiwis headed into Victoria's regions for untold adventures. Penguins, platypus, koalas and kangaroos were spotted, and there were hot air balloon flights over the Yarra Valley, scenic helicopter rides over the 12 Apostles, and houseboats down the  mighty Murray River.
