Bacchus Marsh, Bacchus Marsh,
Take a train journey out west for a wintertime wander around Bacchus Marsh.
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Easy, approximately 9 km, with shorter options of 6.5 km or 4 km, circuit walk on sealed and unsealed footpaths.
It’s wintertime and it’s cold so let’s rug up and head off to do Bacchus Marsh by train and on foot. This is a relatively short and easy walk with shorter options of 6.5km and 4km available for anyone who chooses. The Werribee River flows between the township and the railway line and we’ll take a wander along the foot tracks alongside the river. Firstly we’ll take a loop to the west, giving the first chance to opt-out of a section. A reserve on the banks of the river with undercover picnic tables will be our lunch spot. After lunch we’ll head in an easterly direction along the river then turn to flank the township passing by market gardens. We’ll head through to Masons Lane Reserve and take in the scenic vistas of the hills to the north. This second loop gives another option for those who wish to take a shortcut and meet us as we head for a cafe in the township for coffee. A final crossing of the river and a wander through Maddingley Park will take us back to the station for the return journey to the city. Our choice of trains are scheduled to arrive back at Southern Cross Railway Station at 3:40pm and 4:40pm.
BOOK by Thursday Thursday 11th July. To PURCHASE and for more details, please follow http://tdy.cl/se/cd2NEGs to GET a TICKET on the Nomads website.
