Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground
Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground is much more than your average playground. There are 20 acres of fun to be had at Lake Pertobe, all centred around a network of lakes and streams, dotted with islands that can be reached by Instagram worthy bridges.
It's no wonder why families plan their holidays around it, and why it was awarded the Best Playground on the Great Ocean Road. Lake Pertobe Adventure Playground is a must-do. so, what are you waiting for? Spring is the perfect time to visit, nature is in bloom, and cute chicks are hatching. Enjoy the outdoors in warm weather while still avoiding the summer crowds!
Baby Animals Arrive at Tower Hill
Tower Hill is a haven for Australia's native wildlife, especially during the spring months when breeding season occurs. During this time you can spot many of Tower Hill's newest additions stepping out into the world.
It is a must to visit Tower Hill any time of year, but it is especially magical in spring. When all the plants start to bloom and all the Native animals (and their babies) come out to play so pack a picnic and bring your camera, you don’t want to miss this.
The Meet the Maremmas
The Meet the Maremma Tour is a fun, educational and interactive experience - a Warrnambool Spring Must for all ages!
Mondays to Thursdays at 10am during the spring school holidays families can meet the famous Maremmas. Learn about the little penguins and the importance of protecting them and how this world first conservation project uses Maremma dogs to protect bird life on Middle Island - made famous by the movie 'Oddball'. You will be given the opportunity to pay and have a photo with the Maremma dogs so don't forget your camera.
