Kids I know love climbing on the cannon or climbing around the giant fig trees. We can easily spend a couple of hours here. Especially if we have a picnic with friends. There are also several events held here. My favourite being Wunta Fest with an outdoor movie at the end of January each year.

Visited the Warrnambool botanic gardens for the first time. Street parking outside the fence.
The gardens has a very well maintained lawn area with wide paths suitable for wheelchairs or prams. No steps.
The garden is a mixture of very established figs and palms and other well looked after gardens. Disappointed in the small amount of Australian Native Plants, but still enjoyed the exotic plants in flower at the time. Fernery was a little wet underfoot.
In the large Morton Bay Figs there was a colony of fruit bats which were chattering away. They didn't really seem to be impacting on the vegetation and seemed to be a manageable size group. One of the high lights was the man made lakes with a bridge over them. Many native species of birds were to be found with black ducks, chestnut teals, moor hens, silver gulls etc. A great place to picnic or just to visit with young or old. Well done to the grounds people.

Aviva and I tend to check a botanical garden in almost every town/city we go to - if they have one.

Sure enough, Warrnambool which has to be one of the tidiest towns on the planet, offers quite a delectable offering. As indicated, its size is relatively small, however it is a truly a beautiful place, one where you can whittle away the time for as long as you feel inclined.

Botanical lovers must check this one out.

Very disappointed that we could not enter these gardens with our dog on a leash. The Melbourne botanical gardens allow dogs on a leash so we assumed Warrnambool would be the same. Maybe time to review this rule.

Here's a delightful paddock of peace in Warrnambool. Quiet, lovely and green. Ponds, bridges, arbors, flowers, trees all in a compact site just over the hill north of the main town. You can stroll from most of the city motels in 10-15 minutes and see another side of Warrnambool. Say "G'day" to John.

Be sure to take a leisurely stroll to the duck pond, with its quaint arched historic bridge, the pond abounding with ducks and water birds. A lovely place to take the family and enjoy a picnic. Very historic gardens which many domineering trees being talking points.

We spent an hour wandering around this lovely garden. Lots of bird wildlife, well laid out gardens, with some historical markers to provide information.

Visited with my family in the last summer. Not very crowded, but quiet and calm. Lake in the middle of the park was a hit for my kid as there were swans ( as i can recall, i may be wrong).

I think the stone bridge is gorgeous with the willow trees framing it. A lovely little circular track to walk around which is approximately 500m so a great distance for young children.
