IS IT HAUNTED? What Was That? The play “What Was That?” is set in the 19th century and is based on the true story of the Chirnside family and more specifically Thomas, his wife Mary and his brother Andrew Chirnside. The Chirnside brothers, Thomas and Andrew, came out from Scotland to Australia in 1839. Over the years they accumulated enormous wealth as squatters, with their sole source of income coming from sheep farming. Thomas, the elder brother, never married but had the magnificent Werribee Park Mansion built for his brother Andrew, his wife Mary and their three youngest children. This was completed in 1877. Thomas resided mainly at Point Cook but was a frequent visitor to Werribee. http://www.essenceproductions.com.au

Werribee River Trail (Werribee and Tarneit)

Werribee River Bike Trail winds alongside the Werribee River from Presidents Park in Wyndham Vale to the Princes Freeway, Werribee.

This is a shared trail so keep your eye out for pedestrians and the Saturday morning Park Run at Presidents Park.

You can start your journey at many entry points along the trail, including the Werribee Train Station.

The Werribee Rive Trail has three main sections:

Presidents Park in Wyndham Vale travelling north to Tarneit along Davis Creek

The paths around Presidents Park are about 2km and the perfect place for learner riders.

For a longer ride, cross the river at the ‘Shaw’s Road Bridge’ and head north along the Werribee River to Tarneit, connecting to the Davis Creek Trail.

From Presidents Park you can also connect to the pathways in Wyndham Vale, via the flood way path. Access is between the skate park and dog obedience club.

Presidents Park in Wyndham Vale travelling south to Cottrell St, Werribee

With the trail along both sides of the Werribee River this is the perfect 5km loop or an easy and scenic 2.5km in one direction.

Car parking is at the Off-Lead dog park at Presidents Park.

Werribee CBD to Princes Freeway, Werribee.

This part of the trail takes you into Werribee City Centre, through Wyndham Park and past Chirnside Park. Head into one of the many cafes in Watton Street to refuel or take a break in the park.

Between Chirnside Park and the Princess Freeway there are several quiet places to rest and watch the riverbank.  This is the section of the river that you would be most likely to sight the elusive Platypus.   

If you want some local history, some sights along this trail are signed with both indigenous and early pastoralist history.

At the Princess Freeway end of the trail you have two options: to connect to the Federation Trail or continue your journey into the Werribee River Park and Werribee Park Precinct (Werribee Park Mansion and Werribee Open Range Zoo). The section of the trail which goes under the freeway is unmade, cyclists will need to dismount and walk their bikes.https://www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/services/sports-parks-recreation/active-wyndham/bike-paths-walking-trails
