Werribee Park Formal Garden Sensory Park Walk.

A wonderful opportunity to explore nature surrounded by such beauty.

Blind Sports and Recreation Victoria (BSRV) and Parks Victoria have partnered to create opportunities for people experiencing vision loss or blindness, to have meaningful, accessible, and enjoyable experiences at Park Walk events.

This collaboration encourages BSRV members, and the broader community of people living with vision loss to join Park Walks at select sites across Melbourne.

BSRV volunteer Ambassadors and co-guides are invited to attend these walks to offer their experiences of engaging in nature using their non-visual senses and walks will include opportunities to engage in nature with all of our senses.

Come and immerse yourself in nature on a Parks Victoria volunteer-led walk through the beautiful Coolart Wetland and Homestead gardens. Enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings, chat to fellow group members and spot some of the birdlife that call the sanctuary home.
