Although Werribee started life as a suburb of Melbourne, the settlement expanded so rapidly that it has now attracted its own suburbs and the town is currently home to around 38,000 people. However, the central business district of Melbourne is situated just 32kms to the north-east of Werribee and can be reached in just a few minutes by road or rail.
While there are plenty of great property options to be found in the heart of Werribee, the newer suburbs are also becoming increasingly popular with home hunters. Areas such as Wyndham Vale, Hoppers Crossing and Williams Landing in particular boast plenty of amenities as well as a strong community feel.
Werribee’s central business district is situated along Watton Street and boasts a large regional shopping centre known as the Werribee Plaza. This is the perfect place to indulge in a spot of shopping before getting a bite to eat at one of the central business district’s many cafes and restaurants.
Werribee boasts a large number of interesting attractions and new residents will be able to explore at their leisure. The large and lovely Werribee Park is a great place to take a stroll on a sunny day, while animal lovers and families with children will want to allow plenty of time to explore the famous Werribee Open Range Zoo.
People who want to get a feel for the natural beauty that this part of the world offers can start by taking a trip to the K Road Cliffs. This interesting cliff face overlooks the Werribee River and people who enjoy messing about on the water will be able to launch a canoe from here to take a scenic trip along the river. Other attractions of interest include Werribee Historical Museum and the impressive Werribee Mansion.
