The vegetation of Tower Hill was originally very diverse, consisting of manna gum, blackwood, black wattle, swamp gum and drooping she-oak. However, early settlers soon removed much of the vegetation in the Warrnambool area, and it wasn't long before Tower Hill met with the same fate.

With the invaluable assistance of many volunteer groups more than 300,000 trees have been planted. The aim of the restoration program is now to re-introduce indigenous understorey plants including ferns and grasses.


The revegetation of Tower Hill has provided new habitats for many animals. You may see koalas, emus, kangaroos, magpie geese, echidnas, and possums, as well as waterbirds.
