This maritime town features an enduring history with past sea incidents having taken place on this infamous stretch of coastline. The town offers premium accommodation options, superb dining choices and beautiful beaches. Load up the picnic basket and head for Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground, perfect for families and a stroll around the pretty Botanic Gardens will have you unwinding in no time. Ignite your passion for creativity at the Art Gallery and roam the streets on a self-guided heritage walk through town.

Warrnambool township is nestled amongst lush dairying countryside flanked by the rugged south west coast on the edge of the Southern Ocean. Be enchanted by the visit from Southern Right Whales as they stop off at Logans Beach every June to October where they often venture in as close as 100 metres off shore giving spectators the chance to get as close as possible without being in the water with them.

Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum is a recreated 19th century village complete with bank, hotel, schoolhouse and surgery. This award winning attraction reflects the Shipwreck Coasts rich maritime history where more than 180 ships have come to grief. Featuring priceless pieces of maritime events the museum houses Victoria's largest maritime and shipwreck collection and offers a varied experience between day and night visits. A must do!
