Even in summer, bring a jumper and hat, just in case, and it's often windy even in Summer.
All other seasons: definitely bring a hat and wear warm clothing. In summer you'll need a high protection sunscreen, and in the other seasons use it too, to avoid windburn if you'll be out in the elements for a long time. In summer, bring your bathing costume, towel, etc, and surf board if you have one! A sun umbrella or shade might also be useful (providing it doesn't blow away)
This is one of Victoria’s largest dormant volcanoes.
Within the large crater is a lake and wetland islands (currently though the lake has receeded dramatically and is dry in many places due to the drought)
A lot of forest clearing took place here in the past, to such an extent that the crater slopes were laid bare, but in the 1960’s the lake and surrounds were classified as a Game Reserve.
Since then over 300,000 trees have been planted, plus native grasses and other flora.
You can find Tower Hill about 15 kms west of Warrnambool, on the coast.
The Warrnambool Trout farm is somewhere you are guaranteed to catch a fish.
All equipment is supplied. You can feed the fish.
Catch the fish and cook on the campfire. Good fun and will keep the kids happy.
Group bookings available.
Open daily from 10.30am to 5pm
Largest city on the Great Ocean Road
Like most of the towns along coast, Warrnambool was originally settled as a humble whaling and sealing station. Nowadays Warrnambool is a major industrial and commercial centre. Despite its growth, Warnambool maintains a relaxed seaside feel. The city centre has some historic buildings, and many of the main streets are lined with Norfolk Island pines and New Zealand Christmas trees. The town is a popular family summer resort, with some good sheltered swimming beaches as well as open surf beaches.
