New: Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre and Café
The new Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre is open to visitors Wednesdays to Sundays, set on the shores of Lake Condah. Explore significant Gunditjmara sites on a guided tour, and discover a vibrant Indigenous culture through shared stories. See the landscape through Gunditjmara eyes. Relax at the bush tucker café, where the menu features local produce infused with native seasonings, and sample one of the signature Kooyang (eel) Tasting Plates.
Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve
Travel 80 kilometres south east to Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve near Warrnambool and discover a wildlife haven contained in a volcanic formation that erupted around 32,000 years ago. Archaeological surveys of the area have uncovered axe heads and other artefacts in the volcanic ash layers: clues that local Aboriginal people witnessed these eruptions.
Take in panoramic views of the area from the top of the hill and join a local Aboriginal guide from Worn Gundidj at Tower Hill to get an understanding of the volcanic landscape and native flora and fauna.
