STRETCH YOUR LEGS

Need some sea air? The Wyndham Bay Trail is a paved scenic route along the coastline of Port Phillip Bay between Werribee South Foreshore and Wyndham Harbour. Pop into The Elements Coastal Activity Park while you’re there for a salty spray and mini – yet mighty – 18-hole course!
Or admire stunning lagoons and saltmarsh on the Cheetham Wetlands Tower Walk.
