Mercy Place Warrnambool, Victoria

An inviting and cheerful community by the sea.

Surrounded by a wealth of parks and gardens, and with the Merri River and beach close by, Mercy Place Warrnambool is an inviting community in a tranquil seaside township.

Participate in an active coastal lifestyle — with whale and seal watching opportunities in the harbour — or visit the Sunday market at the nearby showgrounds.

Once you venture into our home, you’ll discover an environment designed to keep you engaged, connected and living life your way. Try your hand at art, cooking or gardening activities, or relax and enjoy a film in our on-site cinema room. Or, simply sit back with a cup of tea and have a chat at the café: it’s your choice.
