Short on time? We’ve got you covered.
From the grandeur of Werribee Park Mansion to the African savannah you’ll feel like you’re a world away with this easy day trip in Werribee and Surrounds.
Explore Werribee Park Mansion
Start your your day with a leisurely stroll through these beautiful gardens and the heritage-listed Werribee Park Mansion. Make your way through the beautifully restored rooms and take time to explore the farm and heritage orchard before a well-deserved pot of tea and scones at L.M Café or The Refectory Parlour. Entry to the gardens is free, with Mansion entry from $8 - $11.10.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Victoria State Rose Garden
From Werribee Park Mansion it’s a short walk to Victoria State Rose Garden. Featuring garden beds landscaped into the shape of a rose in bloom, this stunning garden is spread over six aces, with 5,000 roses on display. The garden is open all year round, with the blooms at their best from November – April. Entry is free with gold coin donation welcome.
Indulge with a cellar door tasting and lunch at Shadowfax Winery
Make your way along the gum-lined drive and settle in for lunch at this beautiful winery and cellar door. Bookings are recommended, especially on weekends with the added buzz of live music and underground Barrel Hall Tastings.
Go on Safari at Werribee Open Range Zoo
You’re never too old for the zoo! Werribee Open Range Zoo’s Safari Bus Tour through the savannah (included in entry) is a must do, but if you’re looking for something extra special, try the Deluxe Safari Adventure or a special animal encounter (bookings required). Zoo entry closes at 3.30pm.
Take a little detour along the coast
Take in the beauty of K Road Cliffs before heading to Werribee South Foreshore where you can walk or drive along the coast to Wyndham Harbour. From the harbour it’s a short drive to Campbell’s Cove Boathouses and Cheetham Wetlands, or you can loop back to Werribee’s ‘eat street’ on Watton Street for a bite to eat.
