A park in the making
In 2022 the Victorian Government announced a new 340 hectare regional park straddling Wyndham Vale and Tarneit. To be located north of Presidents Park, this future public space will span Wadawurrung Country and Bunurong Country, taking in the western and eastern banks of Werribee River as well as a section of Davis Creek.
Currently referred to as Werribee Township Regional Park, this project will be overseen by Parks Victoria and includes revegetation works to bring back its pre-colonial grasslands character. Open space for outdoor recreation will be integrated into the creation and management of the park.
Davis Creek can be traced to old farm dams within the creek area. It is a habitat for the endangered Growling Grass Frog. Since 2020 Werribee River Association has worked alongside Melbourne Water, Wyndham City Council, and other partners to enhance conditions for wildlife through indigenous plantings at this site.
Connecting Davis Creek to the future Werribee Township Regional Park, and extending the wildlife corridor in the lower Werribee region, is as beneficial to nature as it is to the wider community.
Things you can do
Take a walk from Davis Creek to Riverbend Historical Park using the Victoria Walks map.
On the west side of Davis Creek, along the paved track, you will also find outdoor gym equipment and a playground; fun and fitness across the ages.
Getting there and around
There are a number of entry points for viewing Davis Creek. We recommend parking at Little Growling Café on 180 Davis Rd, Tarneit and heading east toward the grassy bank and footpath that follows the creek.
