Come for the walk…
Come to make new friendships…
Come to escape life for a few hours and feel the fresh air of bushland…
Or simply come for yummy snack and a lovely healthy picnic lunch with a cup of tea or coffee, and a chat.
For those of you who have been craving a dose of the beach through the winter, this walk is for you! Although a challenging walk at Grade 4, we can honestly say it is also the most rewarding. 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!
Werribee Gorge State Park Myers Road, Pentland Hills, VIC 3341
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.
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 is approximately 9km, and 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!
