Local Highlights

Hopkins River Falls
Driving along the road between Warrnambool and Terang, it's not immediately apparent that there is a charming waterfall just a few kilometres off the highway. Pretty and picturesque, the Hopkins Falls are a renowned feature of the region, attracting visitors and locals all year long.

Whale Watching
Each year, roughly between late May and early October, Southern Right Whales return to their nursery at Logan's Beach to give birth and raise their calves. Just offshore, in clear view, the giant, gentle mothers and their giant children loll about and play, enjoying the shelter of Lady Bay.

Lake Pertobe
Warrnambool’s fantastic Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground is a year-round family attraction. This 8ha adventure playground is paradise for kids with giant slides, flying foxes, a maze and boat rides. There are lovely walking tracks around the lakes, and the park features delightful picnic areas and sheltered BBQ facilities.

Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve
Tower Hill, just to the west of Warrnambool, is one of the most fascinating geological formations in Victoria. It has an important place in local Aboriginal history and it teems with wildlife. Tower Hill is an enormous volcanic crater rimmed by beds of volcanic ash. The swampy floor of the crater is punctuated by conical hills which, after good rains, virtually become islands surrounded by a shallow lake.

Allansford Cheeseworld
Just down the road from Hopkins River Holiday Park is Allansford Cheese & Butter Factory, in the heart of a major dairy farming region, Cheese World brings together a museum, free cheese tastings, a licensed restaurant, and a wide selection of local and regional wines.
