Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village has a range of packages available for groups.

Through the day you can explore Australia’s most awarded maritime heritage precinct, climb the lighthouse, take in the views and learn about the regions maritime history.

By night Tales of the Shipwreck Coast Sound and Light Show takes you on a journey through the ages. This award winning nightly event will be something your group will talk about for the rest of their journey.

Day Visits

All groups are offered an escorted tour of the village and museum. A morning or afternoon cup of tea and coffee can be included.

The Maremma Penguin Protector Experience

We also offer the chance to learn about the Middle Island Project. This is a world first project that uses Maremma doges to protect Warrnambool’s Little Penguin colony.

Catering Options

There are a number of catering options to choose from including:

  • Devonshire Tea - our village baked scones are the best on the Great Ocean Road.
  • Platters Lunch – freshly made mixed sandwiches with a scone slathered in jam & cream. 
  • Captain’s Hot Lunch – a teacup of homemade soup with a savoury scone and a mixture of hot pastries.

All are served in the Stella Maris Tearooms where in winter you can enjoy the open fire and through summer the air conditioner will give your group a refreshing break.

By Night

See the village come to life and experience the stories told through projections onto a nine-metre water wall.

Tales of the Shipwreck Coast takes you on a journey through the ages. From local Aboriginal stories to our colourful whaling past then to events that gave our coastline a reputation that inspired fear and trepidation among mariners.

Shows begin at dusk, with start times changing seasonally. The Wharf Theatre is open fronted so warm clothing in cooler months is recommended.
