The Werribee River Regional Park was announced by Minister for the Environment John Thwaites Wednesday 4th October 2006 at the K Road Cliffs Werribee. Launching the park’s draft management plan, the Minister said the new works would include a trail along the Werribee River, a pedestrian bridge to connect to the Werribee mansion precinct, an entrance road, car park, visitor facilities and fencing. WRIVA was present and spoke with members of the official party about being involved with the new park.
The Werribee River begins near Leonards Hill, on the southern slopes of the Great Dividing Range just to the north and east of Korweinguboora when a number of small creeks join, in the Wombat State Forest.
The creeks commence from slopes around Leonards Hill (739m above sea level), Beavers Hill (716m) and Edwards Hill (708m), between Kurweinguboora and Bullarto South. These creeks near Kurweinguboora begin on undulating farm land, or inside Wombat State Forest.
