Warrnambool – The Whaling City

It certainly took me a decent amount of time to get around to writing (and even posting) this piece, especially since it was Easter 2015 when I was last in Warrrnambool (at least at the time of writing, which is actually May 2016, over a year after I was there). Mind you, it isn’t that I hadn’t written anything of Warrnambool since that time, since I did write about the Maritime Village, the Cheese Factory , the volcano, the church, and of course the Great Ocean Road. … More Warrnambool – The Whaling City

Warrnambool Botanic Gardens – Peacefulness by the sea

Well, I guess when I noticed that there was a sign pointing towards the botanic gardens I decided that I might go and have a bit of a look around.

Okay, you can also see the steeples and towers of the various churches as well, but you can generally tell that they belong to the churches (which is quite helpful when you are looking for a church, because you can see the steeples and towers, but unfortunately they generally don’t tell you what that church actually is – though I’ve never accidentally wandered into a room full of cultists). … More Fletcher Jones – More than just an abandoned factory

Warrnambool Art Gallery – A collection of Random Paintings

Well, I guess every major town deserves an art gallery, even if it turns out that there isn’t all that much inside – which is what I discovered at the Warrnambool Art Gallery, otherwise known as The WAG (though that sounds like something you do when you don’t want to go to school, however it is also interesting that when you are working, you don’t wag work, you chuck a sickie – or at least that is what you do in Australia). … More Warrnambool Art Gallery – A collection of Random Paintings
