Weribee Gorge ‘Wearibi’

Werribee Gorge State Park

What would it feel like to be refreshed? Renewed?

Our journey through the ancient Wearibi, 'the swimming place', will guide us through spectacular and rugged sections of gum lined ochre-red cliffs. We will wind our way along hill tops and creek beds, to the Eastern and Western Viewpoints of the Gorge, before descending rocky terraces into the magnificent Werribee Gorge. Here we'll laze among cleansing pools, to find stillness and renewal, and mindfully follow the quiet call of the Werribee River back Home. Together we will rediscover the Ancient, and emerge refreshed, invigorated and reconnected.

Our day retreats are supportive, nurturing, and deeply connective experiences. We draw on mindful hiking, meditation, yoga, nature interpretation and ecology, seasonal bushfood and re-wilding practices, to help you de-stress, rest, and reconnect with your true self and the earth. Join us, and rediscover yourself in the wild.

* Moderate hiking grade: Moderate level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Some peaks with decent incline and large steps. Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain. Some rock scrambling required, A cable handrail is available along a 50m section of the walk to assist walkers on high angle rock above the river. Some level of general fitness and sturdy footing required. If you have any questions about the trail, feel free to contact us here: hello@belindachristie.com 

Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).

We pay respect to their Elders past, present, and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
