Werribee River Park is a natural setting ideal for exploring the beauty of the Werribee River. The river and wetlands provide an opportunity to see a diversity of water birds and enjoy recreational activities such as fishing and kayaking, whilst the majestic River Red Gum trees provide shelter and line the river. The park also contains numerous artefact scatters indicating a long history of Aboriginal occupation of the area.
Werribee River Park is located in Cocoroc (Melways ref: 224 J5). The vehicle entrance is accessed from Old Geelong Road onto New Farm Road (Melways ref: 205 E11). Follow New Farm Road through the Western Treatment Plant, over the Princes Freeway, and turn left at the end of the road.
Gates at the entrance to New Farm Road are opened daily from 6am to 9pm.
