Home and Contents – Victoria
Victoria is Australia’s most densely populated state, with around 75% of its 5.8 million residents living in Melbourne. A quarter of all Australians live in The Garden State, which averages 25 people per square kilometre. Over a third of Australia’s manufacturing workers also live in Victoria, which boasts the world’s one and only Vegemite factory near Port Melbourne1.
Homeowners in Victoria are all too aware of the state's history of devastating bushfires. A spate of fires during 2012/2013 destroyed 46 homes and the heartbreaking Black Saturday bushfires in 2009 were the worst in the nation's history – burning over 2000 properties and 61 businesses2. The state also has its share of severe storms, which cause significant damage to homes and cost Victorians $28 million each year in repairs and clean-up costs3. Just as in every other part of Australia, it's essential for Victorians to protect their valuable homes from these sorts of risks with reliable Home and Contents Insurance. That's where Budget Direct can help.
