The Werribee River Association officially launched a new website on Thursday 22 June, to support engagement and enjoyment along the lower Werribee River.
The new Werribee River Guide website stems from a collaborative partnership, working to enhance the lower Werribee River. Project partners include Melbourne Water, Wyndham City, Parks Victoria, Werribee Zoo, Western Melbourne Tourism, and Wadawurrung and Bunurong Traditional Owners.
The launch event held at the Western Treatment Centre was a hive of activity as partners from government, business and community organisations gathered to help share in the excitement. Copies of a printed Meet Me by the River guide were also circulated and will soon be popping up around Wyndham and beyond.
The Werribee River Guide website www.werribeeriverguide.com seeks to showcase the special places and hidden gems along the river. Whether planning a family day out, or looking to get on the move along the trails, the Werribee River Guide is a resource to explore.
Werribee River Association’s Community & Business Development Manager, Lisa Field, said the guide would continue to promote how people can connect to the Werribee River.
“This guide will help make Werribee River a destination in itself” said Ms Field.
This new online guide enables people to explore and plan out their trips, and also to get involved in the river-keeping aspects with the Association.
The guide includes information about the Traditional Owners, as the lower Werribee River marks a shared boundary with the Wadawurrung and Bunurong people.
This work has kindly been supported by Melbourne Water.
