The Werribee River Estuary

The Werribee River Estuary is about 30 km from the Melbourne CBD.

The compact outer western suburb of Werribee South is located on the east bank.

The Werribee Park and Open Range Zoo is about 3 km to the north.

A foreshore, small boat harbour, seaplane landing area, and nice beach are the main features. Fishing is popular.

There is a large bird population, including many pelicans.

The (western) opposite bank is out-of-bounds to the public, being part of the large area managed by Melbourne Water. A new National Park is planned for this area, with walking and bike paths to be constructed. This new NP will be reached by a bridge to be built from the eastern foreshore.

I visited the Werribee Estuary on June 4, 2008, on a very foggy day!
