Victoria Discovers took a Spring break overnight road trip to Warrnambool. The weather was not on our side with persistent scattered showers coming through all weekend. However, we didn’t let a little bit of drizzle put a damper on our discoveries…
Warrnambool is around a 3 hour car journey from Melbourne or about a 1 hour car journey from the 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road.
Known as Shipwreck Coast, the dramatic coastline will leave you in awe of mother nature and her dramatic temper.
Victoria Discovers started their one night excursion at Tower Hill, which is around 12km outside of Warrnambool . Tower Hill Nature Reserve is an extinct volcano that is bursting with wildlife. Victoria Discovers enjoyed a picnic that we brought from home at the Picnic Ground. There were public toilets and BBQs free to use.
Our next port of call was the magnificent Thunder Point. Even from 30 meters above sea level, we still got wet from the spay of the ocean.
After a full day, we were ready for a hearty meal so ventured over to the local RSL for some good old Aussie pub grub.
The sun may have gone down on Warrnambool but the lights shine brightly as we headed to the unmissable award winning light and sound show at Flagstaff Hill.
It was then time to bed down for the night at the Elm Tree Motel. For a comfortable bed and a good night’s rest.
In the morning, we returned to see Flagstaff Hill by day.
To checkout the Shipwreck Museum;
And the incredible Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village.
Victoria Discovers feels we have only scratched the surface of this incredible town and do intend to return to discover further shortly.
