Werribee Gorge State Park


Werribee Gorge State Park covers an area of rugged natural beauty. The park is close enough to Melbourne for day trips and is popular with bushwalkers and rock climbers.

Parent Regions


The 200m deep Werribee Gorge was formed about a million years ago when movements along a fault in the Earth's crust steepened gradient of the Werribee River.


The park contains four official tracks ranging from the 3km River Walk through to the 10km Circuit Walk. Rock Climbing is permitted at Falcons Lookout. There are two picnic areas: Meikles Point and Quarry. There is also a swimming hole near Meikles Point Picnic Area.


The park is approximately 8km west of Bacchus Marsh via the Western Freeway an dPentland Hills Road to Myers Road, or via Ironbark Road (Ballan-Ingliston Road) from Bacchus Marsh-Balliang Road.
