Towns and cities

From the bustling City of Warrnambool -- western gateway to the Great Ocean Road and the hub of Victoria's southwest -- to the picturesque charm of small towns such as Koroit, Allansford, Port Fairy and Timboon, the Coast offers friendly hospitality and a great variety of shopping, dining, accommodation and entertainment options.

The seaside havens of Princetown, Peterborough and Port Campbell have long been favorite holiday destinations, while small communities such as Curdievale and Nullawarre offer a friendly welcome to travellers at any time of year.

Many of the towns feature historic buildings that date back to the early settlement of the district in the 1800's, and are excellent examples of colonial architecture, many constructed of volcanic bluestone, quarried from the extensive basalt plains of the coastal hinterland.

All the towns of the coast and its hinterland are within easy driving distance of each other, making it easy to spend a leisurely day exploring local communities.
