Overview

Werribee Park is a truly unique property with many stories to share. From Aboriginal communities that are known to have wandered the area, to the arrival of Scottish immigrants making their fortune in the 19th century and subsequent use as a seminary by the Catholic Church, Werribee Park offers an authentic insight into three facets of history. Step into the Mansion and experience the opulence of the 1880's whilst listening to the chatter of the Chirnside family with an audio headset tour (fee for mansion entry applies). Take a stroll to the original farmyard where rustic bluestone outbuildings provide a stark contrast to the craftsmanship of Chirnside mansion. Wander through the unique riverine, journey through the contemporary Werribee Park Sculpture Walk or stroll through 10 hectares of beautiful formal gardens and open space park land. Only 30 minutes from Melbourne, take a walk at Werribee Park, today.

A visit to the Werribee Mansion enables one to get a comprehensive understanding of how about the wealthy lived in Colonial Victoria. I found the display of household servants livery and responsibilities particularly interesting.

This is a hidden gem in Werribee. Back behind the shops is the river. And it appears that not even locals utilise it's beauty for picnic spots. Well worth a lovely bike road or a walk along. Could pack a picnic too, as parking is...More

We never get tired of taking friends and family to Werribee Park to stroll through the beautiful manicured gardens and see the historic mansion. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of yesteryear.
