Being active and getting outdoors is the perfect way to boost the mind, body and soul. We have selected the best local walking and bike trails around Melbourne’s west for you to explore.

Federation Bike Trail

The Federation Bike Trail is a safe off-road, sealed path for pedestrians and cyclists. The 23 kilometre trail provides a scenic link between Werribee and Brooklyn. Starting at Werribee River, the Federation Trail meanders through flat and open country allowing for a leisurely ride through the heritage listed reservation of the Main Outfall Sewer (MOS) and then the MOS reserve through the western suburbs of Brooklyn, Laverton North and Truganina. There are a few drinking stations along the way, but no food or drink stops after Werribee, so remember to pack your essentials before you commence you ride.

K Road Cliffs

Take the little ones on a real adventure to K Road Cliffs. The reeds are long, the paths are rugged, and the views are spectacular with afternoon skies and cliff faces rich in colour like those of Central Australia. Venture down to the riverbed for a stroll along the banks, or a picnic by the water. The natural landscape is truly breathtaking! Don’t miss sunset from the picnic area at the top of the cliffs, with a high vantage point for a sundown view.
