A new community on the banks of the Werribee River
The Werribee River makes Riverwalk a unique environment. Whether you love quiet walks, heart-pumping runs or scenic bike rides, you'll relish the ambience of a river not too far away. The rhythm of nature along the river's edge and adjacent parkland adds to a feeling of freedom from daily life too.
Riverwalk today is developing into a neighbourhood that offers a diverse range of housing to cater for a variety of lifestyles. Over 300 houses have now been constructed or are under construction.
The Werribee River makes Riverwalk a unique environment. To keep with its natural setting, Riverwalk includes 24 hectares of open space, wetlands and parklands, links to the Werribee River and Federation Bike Trail, 1.4-hectare Village Park which includes a basketball court, water play areas, bike trails and playground and barbeque facilities and provision for two schools and a neighbourhood centre.
Development Victoria is working with Melbourne Water to include a range of sustainability initiatives at Riverwalk, including stormwater harvesting and recycled water for garden watering and toilet flushing.
The former Werribee Satellite Aerodrome is located on the Riverwalk site, and is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register for its historical and architectural significance. Development Victoria and Melbourne Water continue to work closely with the group to explore options for the permanent home and museum precinct at the site.
