Tower Hill National Park, enjoy the nature, a walk and a beautiful coffee
I'm not afraid to confess that I'm a big fan of the Tower Hill National Park, in South West Victoria just 10 minutes from Warrnambool and Port Fairy. I'm lucky enough to live so close to this amazing volcano that I often drive there several times a week, enjoying the fantastic scenario of this fascinating ecological site, that is also a showcase for the local indigenous culture.

The aboriginal co-op Worn Gundidj, together with Park Victoria and with the help of school children and other volunteer, has planted thousand of trees in a revegetation project started in the Fifties, when all the bush was completely lost to farming and quarrying. Now Tower Hill is a magnificent park, where it's possible to experience Australian birds and animals in their natural habitat and learn about local aboriginal culture.

The guys from Worn Gundidj organize personalize bush and nature walk for adults and families, and also walks with wildlife under the stars.

After enjoying the walk and the myriad of kangaroos, emus and koala, as well as owls, sugar gliders and bats, you can enjoy a perfect cuppa with Slitti coffee or buy a box of Slitti chocolates.

The access to the park is free, and the indigenous centre is open seven days from 10am to 4pm.

If you are looking for a fantastic accommodation in the area have a look at the Killarney Beach House, just 5 minutes from Tower Hill.
