PLEG Planting Day at the Werribee River

Sunday 1st July 9.00 am – 12.00 noon

‘Help us restore the dramatic Werribee River Volcanic Gorge at Pinkerton Flat!’


Pinkerton Landcare and Environment Group (PLEG) will be planting at Pinkerton Flat on the Werribee River, besides Western Water Treatment Plant.

Restoration works are funded by Vision for Werribee Plains (DSE), Western Water and Melbourne Water; at one of the most dramatically scenic sites on the river.

As well as planting beside the river you will have the opportunity to view this section of the Werribee River volcanic gorge. Everyone is welcome.

  • The track then passes through a gate, and gradually descends down the escarpment to Pinkerton Flat.
