Top Ten Things to Do this Spring

Roses in bloom, Mansion picnics and mini golf by the sea!

See 5,000 roses in bloom at the Victoria State Rose Garden
See the Victoria State Rose Garden at its spectacular spring best this month! And then mark your diaries for the free, two-day State Rose & Garden Show on 10 –11 December, featuring workshops, gardening exhibits, plant stalls, live music and leading gardening personalities. For the ultimate day out, pre-order a High Tea Hamper from The Refectory Parlour to enjoy in the grounds.

Tee off at The Elements Coastal Activity Park
Ditch screen time for sea time, at Wyndham Harbour’s new activity precinct!  Grab a coffee, enjoy those bayside views and tackle the new mini golf course. There’s no need to book ahead – drop in anytime from 7am to sunset, with tickets from just $10.

Picnic in Werribee Park
The gardens of Werribee Park are beautiful at any time of year, but particularly so in spring! Pre-order a picnic hamper from The Refectory Parlour to enjoy in the grounds, or grazing box from Wyndham Cache or The Little Deli Panini Bar or Meli’s 21 Deli.

See out the week at Shadowfax Winery
Make the most of the warmer weather with Friday Nights at Shadowfax Winery – every Friday night this Spring and Summer. Catch up with friends over dinner, enjoy live music and taste top drops from the latest vintage.

See Wilam Biik at Wyndham Art Gallery
This spring Wyndham Art Gallery will host Wilam Biik – a major exhibition from TarraWarra Museum of Art featuring First Nations artists from South-East Australia. Opening on 27 October, this free exhibition invites visitors to appreciate how First Nations people see, listen and connect to country.

Go behind-the-scenes at Werribee Open Range Zoo
Surprise someone special with a Ranger Mystery Tour at Werribee Open Range Zoo! Discover the hidden sights and stories of the Zoo with this unique experience, where no two tours are the same!

See Werribee Park Mansion in a whole new light
Sure you’ve visited Werribee Park Mansion by day, but have you experienced it by night? Enjoy Essence Productions’ immersive theatre experience, What Was That? with Friday and Saturday night bookings available this October and November.

Book a table outdoors
Time to swap the cosy fireplaces of winter for sunny street dining, spacious beer gardens and waterfront views. Try 3030 Boulevard, Casa Cantina, Teddy Picker, Bridge Hotel Werribee, Truckstop Deluxe, Wyndham Cache, The Park Werribee or take your pick from these top cafes and street eats

Take in the view at Cheetham Wetlands
Never been to Cheetham Wetlands before? It makes for a great family walk (1.5 kilometres each way), with the reward of the observation tower and its stunning wetland and city views. You can also extend your adventure with a walk along the beach at Point Cook Coastal Park or side trip to Campbells Cove Boathouses.

Treat yourself to High Tea
Indulge with a lavish spread of sweet and savoury delights with High Tea every weekend at Lancemore Mansion Hotel Werribee Park (bookings essential) or pre-order a Heritage High Tea Hamper from The Refectory Parlour to enjoy in the park grounds.
