Werribee Park


Werribee Park

Werribee Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape in the traditional Country of the Bunurong People. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Bunurong Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.

Soak up the richness of Werribee Park, an estate built on the wealth of an Australian pastoral empire. Explore the heritage-listed Werribee Mansion, set up a picnic in the beautiful formal gardens or see a kaleidoscope of colour when the 5000 roses bloom in the Victoria State Rose Garden.

Experience the grandeur of the Werribee Mansion. Enjoy a picnic or explore the formal gardens and marvel at the expansive manicured landscape, intricately designed grotto and ornamental lake.

Once the working heart of the Werribee Park estate, the remaining bluestone outbuildings of the farmyard provide a stark contrast to the elaborate craftsmanship of the Chirnside Mansion. Wander down to the heritage orchard and see the work the community and Parks Victoria have put in to preserve and restore the fruit orchard originally planted by the Chirnside family in the late 1800s.

Werribee Park Formal Gardens

Like many notable early settlers the Chirnsides were members of the Acclimatisation Society, an organisation which introduced several European flora and fauna species to the Australian landscape. As a result the ten hectares of manicured landscape contain a variety of exotic species combined with Australian natives.

  • Notices Affecting Multiple Sites

    Werribee Regional Park - No vehicle access & pedestrian bridge closed

    The pedestrian bridge over Werribee River, which connects Werribee Park to Werribee Regional Park is closed.

    Flooding has caused significant damage to the footing of the bridge, and it is not safe to use. The work requires careful planning and design, with many site and environmental factors to be considered, to minimise impact on flora and fauna. Works are expected to take place in mid 2025.

    Werribee Mansion and Victoria State Rose Garden remain open. Access via gate 2, off K Road, Werribee South
