Werribee's well-known for its wildlife and wineries, but did you know that you can also explore this Melbourne suburb's network of nature spots and tuck into its thriving foodie scene? Make a day of it and discover why we’re wild about Werribee.

Bay West Driving Trail

Head out of Melbourne’s CBD, over the Westgate Bridge and west of Altona, where Werribee and surrounds are an easy turn off the M1. Stretching from Werribee South’s foreshore and up beyond the region’s lush market gardens – cherry pick your favourite spots to explore on a relaxed road trip out of town.

Werribee South Foreshore

Stop off to scrunch the sand between your toes on a seaside leg-stretch with views across Port Phillip to the You Yangs Regional Park. The foreshore has boat and jet-ski ramps so you can splash about in boats, canoes and kayaks or zip across the water on a jet-ski.

Point Cook Coastal Park

Continue along the coast to neighbouring Point Cook Coastal Park for a beach picnic, barbecue or to spot local birdlife. The park loops around to Point Cooke Marine Sanctuary and Cheetham Wetlands beyond, providing a shoreline reserve filled with lagoons, saltmarshes and sandbanks. Pick one of the network of walking trails that delve into this natural habitat sheltering a variety of shorebirds.

Werribee South market gardens

Drive back via the Werribee South market gardens – Melbourne’s food bowl – which sprawl out across 3,000 hectares around the coastal strip of Werribee South Foreshore. Irrigated by water diverted from Werribee River, the area is a living history of Melbourne's agricultural roots in Italian marketing gardening, dating back to the early 1900s.
