A beautiful town, close to Melbourne, Geelong and the Great Ocean Road. Some wonderful buildings and parks in town and this square almost dominates the town with its central location. A good place to relax if you've had a long drive.

A little bit of peace and quiet in the cbd of Colac. Great place to sit in the shade of the trees and have a coffee and to reflect on the history surrounding the memorial.
