Exford: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Werribee Gorge State Park


Werribee Gorge retains a wild, rugged natural beauty. The park offers spectacular views and great opportunities for bushwalking and rock climbing.

There are a variety of walks in the park. A popular walk follows the Werribee River from Meikles Point picnic area, offering impressive view of both the river and the cliff faces of the gorge. It leads to popular swimming holes, historic sites and other park features.

Things to do
- The Bacchus Marsh district acquired world-wide fame last century as one of the earliest known occurrences of ancient glacial deposits and Werribee Gorge State Park is still a place where many interesting geological features can be seen. These point to a remarkably varied geological history.
- A variety of walking experiences is available in the park. A popular walk follows the Werribee River from Meikles Point picnic area. This walk gives visitors an impressive view of both the river and the cliff faces of the gorge. It leads to popular swimming holes, historic sites and other park features. The track is difficult in places and requires a reasonable degree of fitness.
- A longer day walk can be made by completing the Circuit Walk up the hill from Meikles Point Picnic Area and returning along the River Walk. Tracks are generally well marked but the degree of difficulty, length and time required for completion are not currently shown.

Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve


This park provides the opportunity to view Mallee vegetation in close proximity to Melbourne. Plants typical of arid landscapes and small creek escarpments make the reserve a fantastic retreat for bushwalkers and birdwatchers.

Things to see and do
- The reserve is open to visitors for walking, nature study and bird watching
- If you are interested in helping look after the reserve contact the Friends of Werribee Gorge and Long Forest, who organise regular working bees, by calling the Parks Victoria Information Centre on 13 1963
- Walking tracks are the only facilities. Note that fires and camping are not permitted in the reserve.

Heritage
Today, mallee vegetation is widespread in Victoria's dry north-west, but some thousands of years ago, during a warmer and drier period, it extended much farther south. Subsequent climatic changes favoured other vegetation such as box and stringybark eucalypts and the Long Forest is now the only naturally occurring mallee south of the Great Dividing Range.

Wyndham Cultural Centre


It consists of the 477 seat Tattersall's Theatre, with full Fly Tower and Orchestra Pit, The CBD Library, Art Gallery and Cafe.

Formerly Centenary hall, the building was a common meeting place for community groups to gather and participate in functions such as Deb Balls, presentations, awards ceremonies and social activities such as dances/wedding celebrations. The most gruesome use of the hall was to hold immunisations which many residents will remember not so fondly!

There are several original features remaining of the former Centenary Hall including the western supporting wall, the original staircase that leads to the gallery and the wooden floor in the library, which was formally the supper room. The most distinguishing feature is the 8m fly tower, which transformed the old Centenary hall stage area into a fully functional theatre.

The foyer has many interesting plaques, which pay homage to the supporters of the venue in both its heyday as Centenary Hall and as the Wyndham Cultural Centre. There is also a time capsule buried in the floor of the foyer and will be opened in 2051. It contains pictures and memorabilia of the former Centenary Hall and the original concept plans for the current building.
