The Werribee River Trail is a shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians, which follows Werribee River in the outer western suburb of Werribee in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.[1][2][3]

North of the Werribee train line the path runs both sides of the river. The path on the eastern side is longer by about 2.5 km.

The Werribee River Aqueduct project resulted in the construction of a footbridge in 2010 at the Federation Trail / Princes Freeway juncture, that allows riders to continue further south, following the west side of the Werribee River.

As part of the Werribee Regional Park development a second footbridge was also built in 2010 linking to the Werribee Mansion and Werribee Zoo.[4]
