What magnificent natural beauty Victoria’s west country has to offer. Especially the less developed areas of the Great Ocean Road, which are predominantly in Victoria’s west country. There is much serene, pristine beauty to be found off the beaten track for those self-drivers to the region.
Other nature-based tourism products within the region include a visit to Tower Hill just west of Warrnambool, Budj Bim , and Seals by Sea at Cape Bridgewater. Children get immense pleasure from nature based tourism destinations, as is the case with Timandra by the Sea.
Port Fairy is a hive of activity nearly all year. With some of the best clothing shops, especially for the ladies, excellent dining places including Bank St + Co for a casual lunch, and Merrijig Inn for dinner, this town is a must see for people to the region.
Portland and its environs are the places yet to be ‘found’. There is a homeliness about this region that is currently untapped with tourism, for people not wanting to go where everyone else goes. This then enables better viewing of what is on offer in the area. There is the cable tram that visitors enjoy and whale watching as Victoria’s whale watching capital are both treats for tourists visiting the region. Good eateries include Edwards Waterfront Restaurant and Clock by the Bay for both lunch and dinner.
Narrawong’s tourism greats include the Narrawong Holiday Park
the Bay of Whales Gallery showcasing world-renowned Brett Jarrett’s wildlife art at 47 Liebelt’s Road, Narrawong. Open Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
