Bacchus Marsh is a suburb in Victoria, Australia. Bacchus Marsh is about 50 and 14 kilometers from the west of Melbourne and Melton respectively. The town has a population of over 6,000. It is the largest urban area in the local government area of Shire of Moorabool. And being located between two rivers (Lerdergerg and Werribee Rivers), Bacchus Marsh became large producer of fruits and vegetables.

Bacchus Marsh has a long history and is the place where European and indigenous people lived. It became a district on 14 October, 1862 and is surrounded by Gisborne Road, Werribee Valley and Lord Streets.

The town was named after a Captain William Henry Bacchuswho occupied the valley in 1838. (The “Marsh” part is associated with the previous condition of the place —marshland).

Bacchus Marsh began to become known because an inn located in the area (The Borden Inn)became a stopover for people traveling from Melbourne to the goldmines.

And due to the growth of businesses and settlements, in 1971, Bacchus Marsh became a municipality.

Top Attractions Within Bacchus Marsh

The Long Forest Flora Reserve. A naturally occurring patch of mallee, south of the Grate Dividing Range, The Long Forest Flora Reserve is a beautiful place for various activities such as strolling, nature study, and bird watching.
 
One time, mallee scrub was common in the area. But as the climate cooled, most of the mallee scrub was replaced by eucalypt forest (the twist is that the Reserve is situated on a bed of shale and sandstone which is not favorable for eucalypts). Aside from eucalypts, you'll also find turkey bush, the fragrant salt-bush, and some rare orchids. The Reserve also has about 200 species of birds, as well as kangaroos, koalas, echinas, wallabies, possums, and gliders.
 
Even though the Reserve is open for visitors, one should not forget not to throw garbage in the walking tracks. Camping and campfires are also prohibited.
 
The Pykes Creek Reservoir. From the Pykes Creek exit off the freeway, turn right across the overpass and you'll soon see a side road on the left that will bring you to the Pykes Creek Reservoir.
 
Pykes Creek Reservoir was completed in 1911 and named after an early European settler. The place has a beautiful picnic area and you can also go boating, swimming, and fishing.
 
The Werribee Gorge State Park is very popular with bushwalkers and rock climbers! (The Gorge really has spectacular views and beautiful and historical geological features)
 
Werribee Gorge State Parkis about 8 kilometers west of Bacchus Marsh and is accessible by two routes. The first is via Westen Freeway and the Pentland Hills Road to Myers Road (this provides acces to the Gorge itself) and the second is via Ironbark Road which is approached from the Bacchus Marsh-Anaki.
