Werribee South Triple Treat.

Sun Oct 2nd 2022 8:55:00 -4:15:00
This walk is a little bit different . Where else do you get to walk on the beach with 40% of Victoria,s vegies growing across the road. (Even the 439 bus ride is an eye opener to just how many vegetables are grown in the area ) The first section is a 6-7 km walk along the newly widened beach and back on the walking path going via the Wyndham harbour which seems to have modelled itself along the lines of Port Douglas with palm trees , fancy decking etc and judging by the no of people and no of boats around, has become a favourite haunt of the locals . The next part of the day includes bus-ing back to to the Werribee Mansion for a quick lunch and a look around the grounds and the gardens, including the rainbow chard parterre gardens and hopefully, a detour to the State Rose gardens will reward us with the first of the Springtime roses. Back to Bus 439 again for the return trip to Werribee proper . A 5 min walk will take us across the footbridge to the newly upgraded ( $13 million) Wyndham park which the Council have transformed into something rather special. Depending upon the weather, the time and the inclination , the out and back walk to the harbour can be reduced to one way and picking up the bus from another area. Werribee coffee shops seem to close at 3pm so an afternoon drink can not be guaranteed. Sneakers will be fine . No hills , not even a hint of one ! This is a public transport walk. Meet at the Flinders St coffee shop area at 8.55 for the 9.07 Werribee train which gives us 10 mins to connect with the 10.06 bus.
