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.
