Warrnambool’s city centre continues to be a hive of activity.

The city centre is in the midst of a once-in-a-generation upgrade with works in excess of $15 million under way. 

While the renewal is delivered Warrnambool City Council is encouraging people to keep supporting their favourite shops, cafes and professional services in the city centre.

Council has provided free 90-minute parking in Ozone Car Park and Cramond and Dickson Car Park along with making grants available to eligible retailers and property owners within the project area to help improve shop facades and access into their buildings.
