We booked a 2-room apartment at Blue Whale Motor Inn & Apartments for our 1-night stay in Warrnambool. It is just a few minutes drive away from the town centre. The apartment was spacious and clean.
There are quite a lot of restaurants in town but a number of the popular ones were closed for the holidays. We had a good meal at Piccolo Restaurant, one of the popular ones based on reviews online.
Breakfast at a nearby cafe the next morning.
