Description

There's so much to see and do on this walk. Allow at least an hour to look around or longer if your little ones will want to play.

Wyndham Park was redeveloped in 2020 and the facilities are amazing. The design makes the most of the river - the beautiful natural asset in the heart of Werribee.

There are two large playgrounds, expansive lawns, woodland areas and places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. The park has drinking water, public toilets, bike maintenance equipment. Barbeques, picnic tables, outdoor exercise equipment are also available.

Leaving the park, the walk continues downstream along the river to Bungies Hole and the Angler's Club. Platypus have been seen in all sections of the Werribee River with recent sightings at Bungies Hole.

You can pick any point on the loop to start and finish your walk. Werribee Station is a great option for people taking public transport.

This map connects to Werribee to Riverbend Historical Park loop (8.21 km).

Thank you to the Werribee River Association and Wyndham City Council for contributing information and photography for this map.
