The Werribee George Circuit Hike

April 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This is a hike for parents to take their children out and about. Hikeitbaby number 1 rule – no hiker is ever left behind! We will all have a break when your little one needs a feed, a stretch, nappy change or maybe you yourself need a rest! 🙂 It is advisable to carry kids in the carriers on this walk and have plenty of water 😉 below is a description of what to expect:

This hike explores the length of the Werribee Gorge. Starting at Meikles Point Picnic area follow the Werribee River to the north west. The trail is quite awkward from this point until Needles Beach as it hugs the base of a few small cliffs. Needles beach is a good place for a rest stop. Follow the trail along the eastern side of the river as far as Blackwood pool. The trail then leaves the river to ascend a rocky ridge to western viewpoint. A great spot to take in the twisting river below. Continue to walk east from Western viewpoint past picture point, which overlooks Needles Beach, and on to Eastern Viewpoint where you can take in a view of the Island. From Eastern Viewpoint you now have the option of following the short circuit trail back to Meikles Point or continuing east past the Hanson Farm ruins back to the quarry car park. The trail from the carpark now follows Myers road for a few hundred metres. Leave the road and follow the trail across a few shallow gullies before descending Pattersons spur via a vehicle management track and back to Meikles Point.
