Originally went here with my family about 6 years ago for the night time display and had a great time. Plenty of stuff to do and enjoy, have recommended it to many people

You have to go and see the light show when visiting Warrnambool, we were totally amazed by it. The staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful and nothing was too much bother for them... Will definitely go again!

This historic township is beautifully recreated, hosted the wedding we attended and all the staff were great to deal with. We didn't have time for the sound and light show but heard it is great, most regrettable on our part. :(

Quaint buildings and cobblestone paths. Highly recommend having a tour guide as their wealth of knowledge adds so much value to your visit. The light show is brilliant and entertaining. The home of oddball

We went on a rainy day but managed to keep dry by ducking into the various homes and businesses around the village.

An evening stroll through the recreated village takes you down to the 'outdoor', but undercover, seating area to watch this fantastic sound and light show. Very well presented on screen and water, and the seats move sometimes too, as though you are on a boat....More

A great place to learn about and teach children about the history of the coast. A few hills, but easy to get around, the night sound and light show has been up graded and was a fantastic way of teaching history.
