Track Overview

Starting at Meikles Point Picnic Area this hike follows a loop around Werribee Gorge up the hill to both the western and eastern lookouts. After you have walked up the hill and passed by the lookouts you will reach the river section of this hike which requires you to cling to the rock walls using the wire that runs along the trail. Once you reach the end of this section you meet back at the picnic area. Some parts of the walk can be impassable after heavy rain so check weather conditions before you set off on your walk.
