Make your dream home in the sand with turrets adorned with seaweed and shells, then take a well-earned refreshing dip in the cool waters of the bay. Grab your board and make for the break as you teeter on some of Australia’s best waves.

Tower Hill, located 14 km west of Warrnambool before Port Fairy is one of the most fascinating geological formations in Victoria. After good rain, hills on the floor of a massive volcanic crater are surrounded by a shallow lake.
There are amazing views overlooking the lake and the island-hills from the rim of the crater across to Port Fairy. There are several walks, picnic facilities and plenty of wildlife.
