Werribee Gorge State Park has a selection of shorter and long loop walks to choose from. All walks are Grade 3, meaning a moderate level of fitness is required, walking on uneven ground with many steps, some rock hopping and steep hill sections involved.
1. Short Circuit Walk – 5km, 2 hours circuit
A good sample of the open rocky woodlands with a half-way opt out at Meikles Picnic Area. This track overlaps the eastern half of Werribee Gorge Circuit Walk.
2. Werribee Gorge Circuit Walk - 10km, 4.5 hours circuit
Excellent views are provided along the gorge rim. An exciting 50 metre section of cable handrail is provided to assist walkers on tricky high angle rock above the river upstream from Meikles Point Picnic Area.
Walking anti-clockwise will return you on the gentler riverside track leaving the completed, steep sections behind you. Start at either the Quarry or Meikles Point Picnic Area. There are no shortcuts. Allow plenty of time and daylight.
3. Centenary Walk – 4km, 2.5 hours return
Start at Myers or Quarry Picnic Area carparks. Follow Werribee Gorge Circuit Walk before diverging to the right passing through open woodland to the bridge across Myrniong Creek. After crossing the creek there is a very steep climb to the top of the James Whyte Island Reserve where you will be rewarded with panoramic views.
4. Ironbark Gorge Walk - to Falcons Lookout - 3km, 2 hours return
Enter from the Ironbark Gorge Carpark on the Ballan-Ingliston Road. Follow the first section through the scenic Ironbark Gorge Walk before turning right onto Falcons Lookout Walk. An excellent walk with panoramic views of the gorge and beyond.
