Not confined to local reserves such as Tower Hill or the Cudgee Creek Park, where interaction with animals is assured and therefore is slightly less exciting, visitors and locals alike can spot all sorts of bush critters around the back roads of the city.
Look up and you'll usually spy some our most remarkable native birds, including kookaburras and blue wrens, or a koala making its home among the gum trees. Keep an eye out on the side of the road too, and you may see an echidna burrowing its way back into the bush.
Hi Michaelie, Dont forget about The Ralph Illidge Sanctuary one half an hour from Warrnambool on the Cobden Road. Lots of birds and wildlife to be found and all for free!
