#2 of 19 in Things to do in Werribee
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.

  • Melbourne go right next door to the Zoo come to non-weapon waste of non-I went to the mansion. Antique feel of the building and the spacious gardens neatness is well endowed. Flowers and trees, grass and neatly arrange them have Woods says. People have been looking up much, but enough to be well known. Once if you experience about good memories as you walk lightly.

  • 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.
  • All i can say is wow.... beautiful mansion... plan on coming back n seeing the bits i missed including the open zoo
  • 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
