The 3.9 hectares development 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 Mill Warrnambool development will give the old Woollen Mill new meaning in keeping with its historic significance.
