The Aboriginal meaning for Warrnambool is & quote between two rivers, which accurately describes the cits’ location between the Merri and Hopkins Rivers. The city is bounded on a third side by ocean and spectacular beaches. Warrnambool is the centre of a region known as the “Shipwreck Coast”. At least 28 wrecks are listed in the Warrnambool area and a further 29 at Port Fairy.
The coastline, although extremely dangerous for the early sailors, is absolutely spectacular. One of the best ways to discover the history and heritage of the area is via a visit to the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village Museum that recreates the appearance, atmosphere and activities apparent in a small coastal port during the 50 years prior to 1900. A highlight of our tour will be the sound and light spectacular “Shipwrecked” which will be performed at the Village.
