This map is based on a ribbon map format. It illustrates the variety of terrain the river passes through. The River begins its journey in the Wombat Forest in North East Victoria. Like all rivers it begins as small streams that combine to form a stronger flow. It follows a path through the woods until in time, it breaks free into the light as it meanders its way, guided by the contour of the land, past the wheat fields and dairy farms. Further along it enters through the dramatic tall cliffs of the Werribee gorge. On it goes, meandering through the patchwork of farming communities. Its large tributary, the Lederberg River and small creeks will merge to increase the flow. Its waters irrigate the market gardens of Bacchus Marsh. Further on it widens out into the Melton reservoir. In and out its curvy trail goes, as it heads towards the suburban outskirts of Wyndham. It glides through the city of Werribee itself with many parks and reserves by its side. It passes beneath the bridges to flow on pass the Open Range Zoo, the Werribee Mansion, the local golf club and the dramatic K Rd Red cliffs. At last, it reaches its estuary. On one side there is a wetland reserve, and on the other the Werribee South foreshore until it becomes one with the sea at Werribee South.
