Great place for sightseeing. Great cafes nearby. A little marina behind the breakwater. I sailed my Hobie out there a while ago off the breakwater, when the surf/wind was a bit milder than today.

Definitely worth walking along if you are visiting Warrnambool. It can be very wind up there so be prepared for that. Keep an eye out for Sammy the Seal who hangs around and feeds off the scraps as the fisherman come back in.

An enjoyable walk along the breakwater gives views over the ocean and into the busy harbour. We chatted with fishermen who had varying luck and found it interesting and enjoyable.

This is great place to enjoy a nice walk with the family, which has great views of the ocean and beaches of Warrnambool! Take your time to enjoy, and then head to The Pavillion for a snack. Perfect way to spend the morning!
