Warrnambool is a frequent tourist destination for those hoping to spot the Southern Right whale and its calves off the shore of Logans Beach. They can be seen from June to September. In town, you can find locals by the Hopkins River Mouth, enjoying the beautiful cliffs, rock formations, and rock pools. The Deep Blue Hot Springs offer a wellness sanctuary with hot springs, aromatherapy pools, and rainforest caves for adults and children alike. While exploring Warnambool, visit the peacock statue within the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum and Village, valued at over $4 million and famous for being onboard the Loch Ard vessel when it sank in 1880, washing ashore unharmed. Surf, rock, sea, and river fishing are popular, particularly at Levys Beach, Killarney Beach, and on the Hopkins and Merri Rivers. If you would like to go for a nature walk, hike, or have a picnic in nature, make sure to visit Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve. It is about a 20-minute drive from Warrnambool, and if you are lucky, you can spot koalas, kangaroos, and emus.
