One of the best playgrounds in Victoria. Warrnambool’s fantastic Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground is a year-round family attraction. This 20 hectare adventure playground is paradise for kids with giant slides, flying foxes, a maze and boat rides. There are lovely walking tracks around the lake, and the park features delightful picnic areas and sheltered BBQ facilities.
Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village is located in Warrnambool, a regional city on the south-western coast of Victoria, Australia. The museum is built on Flagstaff Hill that also holds the original lighthouses and Warrnambool Garrison.
The Warrnambool Breakwater was designed by the eminent British harbour engineer Sir John Coode in 1879 and constructed between 1884 and 1890. Warrnambool was the centre of a prosperous farming region from the 1840s, and following the construction of jetties in the 1850s the harbour was extensively used and was a regular stop on the coastal steamer route.
The site of these botanic gardens was selected in 1866, replacing an earlier site near the mouth of the Hopkins River. The early development of the gardens owes much to Charles Scoborio, curator, and Government botanist Ferdinand von Mueller.
