Werribee Gorge Scenic Rim

Upcoming

Distance: 13.7 km

Walk Description

Werribee Gorge State Park is an area of wild, rugged beauty. Located approximately 8km west of Bacchus Marsh, the park offers spectacular views and great opportunities for bushwalking and rock climbing.

The Gorge Rim Walk is a fairly challenging walk with rocky terrain, steep climbs and water crossings. Part of this hike follows existing trails with sections being completely off-trail for that added sense of adventure. The hike should take approximately 5-6hrs to complete. Please be reasonable about your level of fitness before rsvping.
