Experience the beauty of the Scenic Rim of Werribee Gorge.

About this Event

Starting from Miekles Point Picnic area follow the Werribee River to the west. This walk includes many parts of the shorter circuits while walking some shorter unmarked sections and challenging climbs to reach some of the best highlights of this popular and exciting region.

Highlights on this walk include the Shelter Shed, built in 1908, Ironbark gorge, views of the island, Needles Beach, Pyramid Rock, the Werribee River and some rock hopping through the Gorge itself.

TRACK NOTES: 11 -13 kms. May vary depending on the group and the water level in the river.

This walk offers some great views whilst on the gorge rim, but has a few steep and rocky sections. The river trail is 300 m below the rim and is relatively flat. There is a variety of narrow grass and rocky sections along the river. You will need to negotiate one 50 m section across a rock wall that has a cable handrail for assistance – this section is not difficult, but is elevated above the river.

An added element of adventure is a couple of river crossings where we will guide you on a safe and fun route across the river.

Walking Notes:

Duration: 12.4kms

Time: 5-6hrs

Grading: 3-4 (reasonable level of fitness for some difficult terrain)

Bring along snacks and lunch plus adequate water for a 5- 6 hour hike.

Getting there: Werribee Gorge State Park is approximately 8 km West of Bacchus Marsh, via the Western Freeway. From Melbourne, take the Pentland Hills Road exit and then turn left on Myers Road – follow the signs.
