Introducing Warrnambool

Warrnambool was originally a whaling and sealing station – now it’s booming as a major regional commercial and whale-watching centre. Its historic buildings, waterways and tree-lined streets are attractive, and there’s a large population of students who attend the Warrnambool campus of Deakin University. The major housing and commercial development around the fringes of the city looks much like city suburbs anywhere in Austral-ia, but the regions around the waterfront have largely retained their considerable historic charm.
