Getting there

Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

Overall rating
  • This was a really good trail and could have been awesome if there had been any water in the Werribee River and if the walk description had been more accurate and detailed. The details of how to commence the walk are inaccurate as is the description of the final 4-5 kms compared with the map provided. Perhaps someone can fix this up since if made the walk more difficult than it was supposed to be.
