Vibrant, dynamic and fast-growing...it’s easy to see why Warrnambool City is consistently ranked as one of the most liveable locations in Australia. It's Victoria's largest coastal city outside Port Phillip Bay.

The flourishing population of this enticing regional area know they’re onto a good thing. With an enviable mix of seaside location, education, health services, tourism, cultural activities, employment opportunities and undeniable family appeal, Warrnambool City is the go-to destination for an ever-growing number of relocators. It’s a city perfect for those wanting to get away from it all, while still having all the infrastructure and services they need at hand.

At the western end of the spectacular Great Ocean Road, Warrnambool is home to the famous May Racing Carnival featuring the Grand Annual Steeplechase and, for fans of speedway, the Grand Annual Sprint Car Classic draws thousands of spectators. The hit Aussie movie Oddball was filmed here, telling the true story of how an eccentric chicken farmer and his Maremma dog saved Middle Island's dwindling penguin population.
