  • Only 50km from Melbourne Werribee Gorge give you a great place for bush walking and also a good spot for a picnic. There are long drop toilets there, plus picnic tables and open fire bbq’s (BYO wood) ...  more »
  • This is a lovely 10km hike with great views, just outside of Melbourne. Why go to Kakadu if you have it on your doorstep. Seriously, I have been to Kakadu and even the best walks there do not match th...  more »

  • Great park with decent facilities (no BBQ however), but is in dire need of renovation when it comes to signage and finding your way around. The first time I went it took the group I was with about 20 mins to find the actual walking path which requires you to go out of the car park and back in the direction you drove in from to find the start of the main circuit loop. Other than that, amazing vistas, huge 10km circuit loop walk that will test your endurance and a really fun 'wall climbing' section that requires you to hold onto a metal rope and shimmy across about 30m of rock face just above the river.
  • Had a great afternoon at Werribee Gorge! Hiked the circuit that took us to a lovely little swimming hole a bit after the half way mark. Highly recommend, takes 3-4hours.
  • Challenging in parts, but worth the effort. If you park at the miekles car park at the bottom and go anticlockwise, you hit the hardest climb of the circuit first. You also leave what I think is the best part of the circuit walk in the second half of the hike.
  • A great place to spend a day tracking. A hidden treasure. Come prepared with good walking shoes and water because there is a track that takes you asking the river and you just want to keep walking. Plenty of photo opportunities and places to sit and rest. Take your rubbish home.
  • Was really looking forward to this trip, roads were terrible (And I have a 4w Drive), signage was very poor. The kids were looking forward to playing in the water but with the lack of signage we didn't no where to go. Followed track along the water, but never found a good safe spot.
