Werribee River Park, Werribee

4.5
A sprawling, manicured estate centered on a large, architecturally ornate and stately home, Werribee River Park offers you a charming view into Australia’s colonial past. Lush gardens, an orchard, as well as an equestrian center and zoo cluster around the Italianate Werribee Mansion, giving the estate a grand, idyllic atmosphere. Construction of the estate began in the mid-1870s, and the Victoria State government in 1973 subsequently purchased it.

    A great garden to enjoy a picnic or relax. Recommend checking out the grotto which lies beneath the stone stair case. A historical find and adjacent to the nice lake with some wetland wildlife.  more »

    Great place for a walk very quiet and peaceful. With nice scenery. Dogs are not allowed on lower section of the walk along the river but can walk along the top. Also saw 2 birds of prey up close circiling over head. Road access is currently full of potholes

    This should be better signed so more know about this beautiful place. Lovely trails to walk along and view the red cliffs or to walk along the river trails and see wallabies, lizards etc. Of course it is a lovely way to walk into the Werribee Mansion too.

    The Main Drive road is full of potholes. I wouldn't travel here unless you are prepared to have your suspension damage. The council or parks rangers need to fix the Main Dr road. If you want to go to the mansion go the other way around.

    It's seems like wrong plot. Passing through all the way of construction site and empty fields but end up reach an abandoned parking area
