Geological features, spectacular views, native flora and fauna and opportunities for bushwalking and rock climbing are the attractions of the 443 hectare Werribee Gorge State Park, about 65 km west of Melbourne. Things to Do * The Bacchus Marsh district acquired world-wide fame last century as one of the earliest known occurrences of ancient glacial deposits and Werribee Gorge State Park is still a place where many interesting geological features can be seen. These point to a remarkably varied geological history. * A variety of walking experiences is available in the park. A popular walk follows the Werribee River from Meikles Point picnic area. This walk gives visitors an impressive view of both the river and the cliff faces of the gorge. It leads to popular swimming holes, historic sites and other park features. The track is difficult in places and requires a reasonable degree of fitness. * A longer day walk can be made by completing the Circuit Walk up the hill from Meikles Point Picnic Area and returning along the River Walk. Tracks are generally well marked but the degree of difficulty, length and time required for completion are not currently shown. Precautions * Be aware that after heavy rain the river can rise suddenly.
