Description

START: Begin at Grahams Wetland Reserve and explore an area known for its rich birdlife. With the You Yangs in the distance, and the bay behind you, it's a great spot for landscape photography.

FACILITIES: Werribee South foreshore has an abundance of facilities and parks. The Werribee South Boat Ramp is a pristine spot for fishing or walking along a jetty or two. There are toilets and car parking located here, as well as playgrounds, picnic areas, drinking fountains, shaded BBQs and seating along the foreshore in James D Bellin Reserve and across Beach Road in Price Reserve.

HAZARDS: There are several signs warning to look out for snakes! Even on the beach. This is probably for pets more so than people, but best to use your common sense when exploring on foot.

FOOD: There's a take away store on O'Connors Rd, behind Price Reserve and Joe's Cafe at Wyndham Harbour.

TRANSPORT: The 438 bus route runs from Werribee Station to Werribee South, along Beach Rd.

Points of Interest

1. Grahams Wetland Reserve

Wander through a vast area of wetlands, with the You Yangs in the distance and boats bobbing in the bay to your left. It's largely unsigned and without paths, but impressive all the same.

2. Werribee South Boat Ramp

Beside the wetlands, where the Werribee River meets the bay, there's a marina of jetties and boats waiting to set sail. Excellent pathways and facilities here, if needed.

3. Look out for birdlife

Look out across to the pointy sandbank on the other side of the river mouth. Here you might spot birdlife relaxing on the shore. This area is home to flora and fauna unseen in other parts of the bay.

7. Werribee South foreshore beach

While you're here, why not wade in the shallows and walk along the shoreline? You can reconnect with the shared foreshore pathway when you've had enough of the sand in your toes or when the path ends.

8. Werribee South market gardens

There aren't too many places in the world where vegetables grow across the road from a beach! With 41% of Victoria's food grown in this region, it's a good time to stop and savour what's around us.

9. Pathways under construction

This new stretch of path leads to Wyndham Harbour, following new residential developments, past the marina that is currently under construction. It promises to be a thriving hub in years to come.
