Walks and Trails

Escape the daily grind and explore somewhere new!
These short walks are perfect for little legs and include great picnic spots for a relaxed day out. For the ultimate summer picnic, plan ahead and pick up a grazing box, scones, fresh cannoli and other local supplies with our top five picnic hampers.


Wyndham Bay Trail
This scenic 2.5 kilometre return route ticks plenty of boxes, with water views, playgrounds, BBQs and an ice cream pit stop. The shared path hugs the coastline of Port Phillip Bay between Werribee South Foreshore and Wyndham Harbour.

Start at either end of the trail and bring along your beach gear to enjoy a dip at Werribee South Beach.  If you’re feeling peckish from all that walking, the gourmet pizzas and hot dogs from 3030 Boulevard  in Wyndham Harbour will certainly hit the spot.

You’re also just a short drive away from Werribee Park Mansion, K Road Cliffs and Werribee Open Range Zoo.

For those looking to stretch their legs a little further, or perhaps work off lunch from Shadowfax Winery, you can also enjoy a 2 to 4 kilometre walk from the Mansion grounds along the Werribee River and ancient River Red-Gums to Werribee River Park.

Post-walk refreshments at The Refectory Parlour or Lancemore Mansion Hotel Cafe are highly recommended!
