Photographer's Note

This two boats were amongst the small boats moored in the narrow boating channel close to where the Werribee River flows into Port Phillip Bay.

The name Werribee is an aboriginal name meaning "backbone" or "spine". It is thought that this name was given as the shape of the Werribee River valley and the landscape look like a backbone.

The Werribee River seems to have provided a boundary between the territories of the Woiwurong aborigines to the north east and the Wothowurong to the south west, although other tribal groups visited the area.

Taken late in the afternoon in the company of a bunch of Melbourne TEers (skippy007, macondo, daddo, afltrek)
