Rich with natural and cultural attractions, Warrnambool has wholesome, family-friendly fun chuck-full of seaside strolls and colonial history to mix up your next weekend trip. Maritime merriment awaits in the area’s many coastal reserves and sweeping bays, where crashing surf meets roaming pastures and meadows filled with wildflowers. Round up the kids to relish the feeling of salty sea air at Thunder Point or take in the jaw-dropping views at Logans Beach Whale Watching Platform.
Sprinkled across the shipwreck coast are local nooks for the family to nestle into when it comes to calling it a night. Think of enchanting historic residences with a roaring open fire, homemade breakfasts at a farmland cottage and reviving boutique hotels for spa time by the sea. You’ll soon be settling in with the family for an evening of board games under the ocean breeze, or convening with kangaroos as you wander through patio doors on your private country estate.
