More about family stays in Warrnambool

Warrnambool is about a 3-and-a-half hours drive away from Melbourne, so it isn't ideal for a day trip, but that's ok because there's plenty of fun and adventures to fill a whole weekend and longer. It's also a great basecamp for day trips into the regional parks inland and to visit the protected marine sanctuaries along the coast.

The city is at the end of the Great Ocean Road with the Princess Highway running through it and onward to Port Fairy 30-minutes away, so it's often a pitstop on a longer road trip down the coast, as well as a destination in its own right.

Once you've locked in your accommodation, then plan your days with the best things to do in Warrnambool.

How to get last minute family accommodation in Warrnambool?

Accommodation in Warrnambool can be hard to come by, especially during the high demand school holiday and public holiday periods. Try these tips to find affordable accommodation just in time.

πŸ‘Ά Travelling with an infant

When travelling with an infant, consider buying a portacot or safely co-sleeping. This can often unlock many more hotel options which may otherwise not work for you.

Travelling with young kids

Similarly, bringing a small inflatable mattress and a sleeping bag can be the difference between locking-in accommodation or missing out.

In either of these scenarios, you may need to:

  • list fewer kids when searching accommodation sites online
  • make sure the property policy is ok with this; you may need you to get in touch with them
