Spring is finally in the air, and what better way to get yourself excited for the summer ahead than exploring the stunning Werribee Gorge.
Although a challenging walk at Grade 4, we can honestly say it is also one of the most rewarding day walks you will do. There is a tiny bit of rock hopping, and for the true adventurer in you we scale over a river holding onto a chain for support. This may seem daunting but your sense of accomplishment at the end will outweigh any doubts you may have!
Walking through a disused water channel, the trail hugs cliff faces until we reach Needles Beach, where will stop for a well deserved, and very yummy treat of scones, tea and coffee.

This walk will challenge you in new ways if you are feeling comfortable with a grade 2, or even 3, walk. This is definitely one of the best shorter walks we do at Take Shape Adventures, and we are very excited to be sharing it with our community!
from Melbourne, take the Western Freeway past Bacchus Marsh and take the Pentland Hills Road exit. Look out for and follow the brown ‘Werribee Gorge State Park’ signs from the Highway.
You can also get there via the Iron-bark Road (Ballan-Ingliston Road) from Bacchus Marsh. The drive is approximately 1 hour from Melbourne’s CBD.
