About Grow West

Grow West is one of Australia’s most ambitious programs of landscape restoration. Launched in 2003, its vision is to revegetate thousands of hectares of land in the Upper Werribee Catchment by connecting large areas of public reserves in Brisbane Ranges National Park, Werribee Gorge State Park and Lerderderg State Park through a mosaic of revegetation works across public and private properties.

Potential sites to visit for inspiration

The follow locations are sites where Grow West has achieved large-scale landscape change:

  • Revegetation leading into Bacchus Marsh from Ballarat on the Western Freeway
  • Revegetation and forestry in the Rowsley Valley, along Glenmore Road
  • Remnant vegetation protection on Iron Bark Road leading into the Werribee Gorge from Bacchus Marsh
  • Revegetation at the Racecourse & Recreation Reserve, Balliang – Bacchus Marsh Road, Bacchus Marsh
  • Revegetation and Forestry at Tramway Lane at Bald Hill Bacchus Marsh
  • Various sites near Palmers Lane and Myers Road adjacent to the Werribee Gorge
