Events Calendar

This page hosts the previews of our upcoming walks and is normally updated with new events near the end of each month, except in November and December. All of our walks are open to the public except those marked as a member only event.

The details of our upcoming walks are also contained in our Club Newsletter, which you can download using the links at the bottom of the page. The newsletters, which are published every month except in January, also contain reviews of our walks from the previous month and general Club news.

Register To Attend A Walk

red exclamation markPlease note that registration for a walk closes at noon of the day before the walk.

Visitor or Guest

If you want to participate in a walk as a guest you must register using the Contact Form. Your details will be forwarded to the Walk Leader who will then contact you to assess your level of experience and determine if the walk is appropriate for you. If you are approved to participate, download the Guest Walker Form and sign the acknowledgement of risk, then present the completed form plus the $5 participation fee to the Walk Leader at the meeting point.

Children may participate as a guest on some of our walks, but they must be accompanied and supervised at all times by a parent or guardian.

Member of BV Affiliated Club

If you are a member of another Bushwalking Victoria affiliated club you are welcome to participate in our walks but you must register as a guest using the Contact Form and advise the name of your regular club. Your details will be forwarded to the Walk Leader who will then contact you and generally approve your participation. In this case a Guest Walker Form is not required and the $5 participation fee will be waived.

WBOC Member

If you are a member of the Werribee Bushwalking & Outdoor Club you should register directly with the Walk Leader.

Things You Need To Know

  1. The meeting point for all of our walks, unless otherwise advised by the Walk Leader, is 8.30 am at the car park opposite Hungry Jacks in Watton Street, Werribee. Enter the car park from Werribee Street South (Princes Highway) Melbourne-bound.
  2. All participants must sign-in on the activity register at the meeting point and provide their emergency contact details.
  3. The majority of our walks involve car pooling and it is expected that each passenger will contribute to the cost of fuel by making a small donation to their driver, normally $5 or $10 depending on the distance.
  4. Many of our walks conclude with the group adjourning to a local café for refreshments before returning to Werribee.
  5. If you are interested in a particular walk you should read the full walk preview in conjunction with our Walk Rating Scheme. The rating of a walk is based on the most challenging aspect of the track, with the grading level indicated by the Track Grading Symbol. Apart from distance, the grading may be unduly affected by the conditions in one section and therefore not indicative of the entire walk. The walk preview should provide sufficient details for you to determine if the walk is within your capability.
  6. Typically on a walk you will need a backpack, good walking shoes or boots, 2-3 litres of water, lunch, snacks, and your own small first aid kit including any personal medications you may need. Depending on the time of year you might also need sunscreen and a hat or cap. We also recommend a lightweight rain coat or poncho that can be stored in your backpack.

Three Creeks Walk

13 km circuit

We will walk along part of the Burchell Trail in the Brisbane Ranges. The itinerary is made up of good foot trails and some fire management tracks through hills dotted with box and ironbark gums. We may be lucky to see kangaroos and koalas. As the name suggests, we will cross several creeks, unfortunately all of which were dry at the time of writing: Graham’s Creek, Yankee Creek and Sutherland Creek.

The walk includes some interesting remnants from the mining era, such as: an old dam wall, the site of an old mine and mullock heaps, and mine shafts including the restored iron hut at the Century Mine.
