Help! I have questions about Australia and racing

I'm writing a romance between an Australian man and a southern gentleman. The Australian is also a race car driver more to the side of stock car racing than F1. I need some help. I've set the story in Victoria and am trying to get more comfortable with the location so that I can include more specifics so that it's not just some random city. I'm wondering if the stock car racing is believable in Australia (I've even written it as more rare than usual) and if anyone can help me with the specifics of Victoria if they've ever been there or have lived there or lived in Australia for that matter.

Any help would be appreciated. I have researched about Victoria but sometimes talking to someone who's been there can provide more help than anything else!

EDIT: Thank you for all of your help! I woke up this morning with all of this valuable information in my inbox! It's definitely helping!
