Werribee River Shared Path

A shared path across the Werribee River underneath the Werribee to Geelong railway line is now open, filling a critical missing link for pedestrians and cyclists.

Werribee River shared path and boardwalk allows pedestrians and cyclists to travel along the river from Cottrell Street to Wyndham Park, completing the Werribee River Trail.  It also ensures a continuous route along the river corridor from Davis Creek in Tarneit to end of the Federation Trail in Altona. 

With the opening of the Werribee River Shared Path, pedestrians and cyclists now have a safe route to the Werribee Railway Station and the Werribee City Centre, which allows people catching the train or doing some shopping to leave the car at home.

The Werribee River is one of the jewels in Wyndham’s crown and this new path will also ensure more people than ever before have the opportunity to experience its natural beauty up close.
