Woowookarung – ‘place of plenty’ is part of the traditional lands of the Wadawurrung Aboriginal people.
“Woowookarung Regional Park is a 641-hectare park in Ballarat by the people, for the people.
Established in 2016, the park is perfect for bushwalking, trail running and cycling among the Messmate Stringybark, Grass Trees, and native heath.”
"In 2021, Australia’s first Dementia-friendly Forest and Sensory Trail was created in the park.
Just inside the park boundary, off Elsworth Street East/Katy Ryans Road, the gentle 1km trail features sensory aspects and quiet places for reflection. These features have been chosen to quietly evoke positive memories, feelings and sensations.
With pathways to allow wheelchairs and carers, assistance dogs, and groups from residential aged care facilities, the trail is an accessible opportunity for people living with dementia to enjoy being in nature."General accessibility features:
