Family Activities

You are planning the summer holiday around the dinner table, the 9yr old says she wants to do all the activities, surfing, mini golf, fishing, boating, rock pooling. The 6yr old says he wants to make a sand castle on the beach, go swimming and boogie boarding and catch a movie and go shopping. Your other half wants to stay somewhere close to the centre of town so there isn’t too much driving and can relax with a local drop and spend a few hours at a museum or gallery, and you?

Well you just want everyone to have a great holiday and read your new book on the beach, have a picnic in the gardens and enjoy a crayfish dinner. Lucky you don’t have to think too hard about where to go as you know Warrnambool can tick all the boxes for everyone!
