We are proud to announce that the Mahogany Motel has received a 4 and a half star rating and that we comply with the Budget Motels Environmentally Friendly guidelines (which is our commitment to conservation and protection).
There are six room types to choose from, including: queen rooms, queen rooms + sofa, queen rooms + single bed, queen rooms + two singles (family), queen rooms + three singles (family), and spa rooms.

With so much to see and do in the Warrnambool area, choosing accommodation at the Mahogany Motel will ensure that you’re in the thick of it. We have covered just some of the attractions available in the area.
Each year, between May and October, you will find that Warrnambool becomes a hub of activity. This is when majestic Southern Right Whales return to Lady Bay to give birth and raise their calves. Whale Viewing Platforms overlooking one of the whale’s favourite underwater playgrounds are available at Logan’s Beach. You can also book yourself onto a boat charter that will allow you to get much closer to these gentle giants and their adorable young.
There are two main beaches to choose from holidaying in Warrnambool – the main drag, Logan’s Beach, stretches across Lady Bay and is a popular place for swimming, surfing, yachting and even windsurfing. Lady Bay is also home to 29 shipwrecks, so don’t hesitate to explore a little. The secondary beach, at Stingray Bay, is found only a short drive away and provides families with a sheltered cove to swim in. Here you will also find crystal-clear rock pools.
For those interested in maritime heritage or Australia’s early days in general, there is plenty of history to be discovered in Warrnambool. The Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village is one of the region’s most popular attractions – set on more than 40 hectares, the village gives visitors the opportunity to learn about life in the 19th century. Explore the historic lighthouses, original buildings and museum, authentic garrison, and the Shipwrecked Sound and Laser Show.
If you love getting outside, Warrnambool will not disappoint. There are a number of trails that are suitable for walking and cycling, including: the Thunder Point Coastal Walk, CBD Heritage Trail (3km), the Promenade, Port Fairy to Warrnambool Trail (37km), and the Mahogany Trail (22km). Your kids will love the parks at Lake Pertrobe Adventure Playground, the Botanic Gardens, Cannon Hill and the Fletcher Jones Gardens.
A number of events and festivals are held in and around Warrnambool each and every year, so if you’re in town when one of them is on we definitely recommend checking it out. The popular Fun4Kids Festival is held in the mid year school holidays, Day on the Hill is held every Easter Sunday, the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic is held every January, the Warrnambool Show is held every October and the Australian Whale Boat Racing Championships are held every summer.
Did you know that Warrnambool is home to one of the most beautiful golf courses in Australia? And to Aussie pro, Marc Leishman? Whether you fancy yourself a pro or enjoy getting out on the course every so often, the Warrnambool Golf Club is a must visit. Choose to play the traditional 18 holes or halve your day with 9. Guests are even welcomed to join in the competitions (which are held every Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday).
