Wyndham City has developed a draft Master Plan for Werribee South Beach that aims to make visiting the coast an even more enjoyable experience and the community is invited to have their say.

The draft Werribee South Beach Master Plan forms part of the implementation of the Wyndham Coastal and Marine Management Plan.

The draft Master Plan was developed based on community feedback received over several years.

It aims to enhance the beach as a welcoming and fun experience for residents and visitors while also protecting the natural environment. Key improvements in the draft Master Plan include:

  • New public toilets with facilities for people living with disabilities and accessible beach matting to the main beach shoreline
  • Additional picnic facilities, barbeque shelters and shade trees
  • A new wetland deck overlooking the Werribee River
  • A new fishing deck and seating area
  • Renewal of the Wyndham Bay Trail and additional walking paths
  • An updated playground
  • A dog off lead beach
  • Sand dune restoration
  • A new summer overflow car park in Price Reserve

Wyndham Mayor, Cr Peter Maynard, said he was pleased to see the draft Master Plan respond to community feedback and that it makes the most of opportunities for exercise and passive recreation.

“There were many people who asked for all abilities access from the car park to the shoreline so that those with mobility and stability issues could be closer to the water,” he said.

“We’re pleased to include improved access to the beach in the draft Master Plan, in addition to improving the fishing experience with a new decking area and encouraging visitors to learn more about our wetlands with a new deck overlooking the Werribee River – not many know that our wetlands are home to migrating birds from as far as Siberia and Japan.”

 

“In the summer Werribee South Beach is a hub of activity with cyclists, kids on scooters and parents pushing prams along the paths – it’s a wonderful place to play and exercise and the draft Master Plan gives our growing community even more opportunities to make the most of this picturesque area.”
