The suburb of Eynesbury is located 44 kilometres west of Melbourne’s Central Business District. It’s under the local government districts of Melton and Wyndham and its population is more or less than 3,000.
The Australian Gliding Museum is one of the popular attractions in the suburb. On February 26, 1999, the Museum held its first committee meeting. This drew together a group of people who shared a passion for conserving older and antique gliders. Since then, the Museum has gathered gliders from around Australia, many of which were either almost lost or destroyed. Over 50 historic gliding archive material, including photographs, glider launching winches, and aircraft drawings are part of the Museum’s collection.
Also found nearby Eynesbury is Rupert Vance Moon Reserve. It’s a lovely spot for a picnic, especially if you’ve just finished picking strawberries across the street at Naturipe Fruits. You might perhaps take a walk along the river. There are numerous wonderful old gum trees around the picnic spot. This reserve features a 2.9-kilometer easy walking track that begins and ends near the shelters. It has many birds, roaming rabbits at the appropriate times of day, and follows the river for a while. There are numerous toilets and grilling spots available. The trip is certainly worth it.
Melton Reservoir, near the suburb of Melton, is a popular spot for passive relaxation west of Melbourne. The reservoir supplies water to the Werribee Irrigation District’s farmers. As a result, levels might fluctuate throughout the year. It’s located at the bottom of a ravine along the Werribee River between Bacchus Marsh and the weir at Exford. The Werribee River has carved a deep valley into the volcanic plain at his location, creating a deep volcanic gorge. The tiny lake winds between deep granite escarpments, providing excellent vistas. Natural revegetation is progressively restoring native flora. Red gums are returning to the high water mark, where seeds were deposited during the floods that occurred in 2011. Drought conditions have returned, thus revegetation will be gradual.Call Us Enquire Now
