This walk begins at Grahams Wetland Reserve where Werribee River meets the bay. With market gardens and beautiful coastline either side, walk from Werribee South beach until you reach Wyndham Harbour.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This area is adjacent to the Werribee South Boat Ramp and offers an excellent spot to have a picnic or BBQ, with new facilities, toilets and a playground for the kids.
As you walk along the shared foreshore pathway, you can't miss 'Boy' a sculpture of a young child's silhouette gazing at the grasslands. This piece is part of Wyndham Council's public art collection.
If you're in need of more space, Price Reserve (on Beach Rd) offers ovals and playing fields, a playground, toilets and a take away store, tucked away at the rear of the reserve on O'Connor Street.
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.
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.
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.
If you're feeling peckish, you can finish the walk at Joe's Cafe and explore the new Wyndham Harbour foreshore area. While still under construction in October 2015, it's due to be completed very soon!
