Our intrepid roving Reporter Paul Henstock has sent this positive report on Werribee South Caravan Park which is located at 39 Beach Road, Werribee South:
“Many tourist sites now have direct water views across Beach Road to Port Phillip Bay since previous permanent site bookings or residential occupiers have been relocated. This has proved a welcome move and has resulted in the park now having a strong repeat visitor booking list -us included!
Cross the road and there is plenty of sandy beach to enjoy, most of which offers safe swimming from the gradual beach slope. Adventure playground for the kids plus there’s also a good length walking pavement for the energetic! Fisherman can launch from the purpose built boat ramp that has a jetty nearby.
Good management and maintenance from Brett and Julie means the grounds are neat and tidy and the two blocks of fairly new amenities are kept spotless.
Big vans, buses and 5th wheelers can fit onto many of the tourist sites. A bonus is most of the front tourist sites have their own dump point!
Free BBQ facility, gas available and a nearby take away food shop that also has basic needs.
Dog friendly park (usual conditions) and an oval alongside the park is also great for dog exercise, watching the football or cricket!
Only minutes drive away are Werribee Open Range Zoo, Werribee Mansion, State Rose Garden, Shadowfax Winery (not a bad drop!) and the Air Force Museum (free entry and a very worthwhile visit).
Retail therapy is more than satisfied by a 10 minute drive to Werribbe’s main street, the Plaza or Old Geelong Road Hoppers Crossing.
Melbourne can be accessed from the park without going through a set of traffic lights, and you can usually get there in about 25-30 minutes out of peak times.
Brett and Julie have turned this park into a word of mouth success, so these days I would recommend you pre-book to avoid disappointment.”
