Absolutely beautiful and worth your time. There is nothing like Mother Nature in her prime and you definitely see that here.

A vantage point to watch whales during their seasonal migration. An excellent beach for the surf lovers or a swim for the strong swimmers.

Even without the whales, this spot is just amazing. A stretch of magnificent ocean beach, with waves powering in on the beautiful golden sands. Just to look in awe, or to walk along this beach is a wonderful experience. I check it out every time I travel to Warrnambool. I have spotted whales on occasions and that is a bonus.... More

The Logan’s beach whale watching platform is located just over the Hopkins River and just outside of Warrnambool, heading east. Although it wasn’t the right time to view whales while we were here, (which is June to September), there are steps that lead down to the beach for a nice walk along the foreshore.

Lovely yellow stretch of smooth sand, steep steps leading down but well worth the trek if you are able bodied

An excellent beach for walking along. Dogs are allowed on the beach. The wooden viewing platforms and seats on the way down to the beach are excellent. A volunteer local was happy to inform visitors about the beach, the whales etc. We were not lucky enough to see any whales, but enjoyed the visit nonetheless.The wooden steps make it easy... More

This is a great place to take your dogs for some walking time. Summertime dogs should be on lead but plenty of space for them to play
