We survived our walk at Werribee Gorge! We only did the “short circuit”, which at 2½ hours took long enough – maybe in late autumn or winter weather I’d consider braving the “long” route. The scenery was lovely, too, although you can definitely tell the climate is more arid here compared to the temperate rainforest to Melbourne’s east. The only downside was the long and unpleasant drive it took to get there (thankfully a bit better coming back). Plus the inevitable patch of sunburn on my neck where I must’ve left a gap in my sunscreen… but overall, a rewarding experience 😁
