About The Mill Warrnambool sustainable living development

The Mill Warrnambool siteFirst and briefly a cannery for preserved meats to feed the Mother Country, but more famously a woollen mill for some 125 years, The Mill Warrnambool is reborn as a residential development with on-site mixed use community, recreational and cultural facilities.

Virtually a village within the South Warrnambool village precinct, the 3.9 hectares of The Mill Warrnambool will be home to private residents alongside large areas of public space reserved for shops, parks, paths, tourist amenities, cultural activities and cottage industries.

The elevated site joins and extends Warrnambool’s expansive foreshore of the popular Lake Pertobe playgrounds, parks and sports venues. Mere minutes from beaches, golf, tennis, the city and rail station, The Mill Warrnambool redevelopment gives lasting life to a local landmark.

Arial view of Warrnambool foreshore Warrnambool City Council, former owner of the woollen mill site, favoured The Mill Warrnambool proposal as the tender that best matched its vision of preserving the heritage and the social and cultural values of the site.

“The vision outlined in the proposal will have the most benefit to the community in terms of long-term use of the site”, said incumbent Warrnambool mayor, Councillor James Nicol, at the time the site was sold in February 2003.

Though dedicated to the past, the development will be modern, especially in its blueprints for environmental benchmarks in sustainable development. With Lake Pertobe, the Merri River and the Southern Ocean in view, the site is compelled to be clean and green.
