What you can expect

Explore Melbourne’s Yarra River in a unique and eco friendly way on a 90 minute waterbike tour. It is exactly as it sounds. Get pedaling as you cruise down the Yarra River on a waterbike that sits on top of the water with no experience necessary. Everyone can get involved as you pedal at your own pace. Begin the session with a safety briefing before you head upriver to admire the Botanic Gardens, Government House and the iconic Rod Laver Arena Precinct. Continue the journey passing the Flinders Street Station and Princes Bridge in the heart of Melbourne city.

Next, you'll turn at Webb Bridge, taking in Yarra's Edge Marine before passing the Polly Woodside Tallship and Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre and the Crown Casino. This fun and safe experience is suitable for all fitness levels and perfect for both tourists and locals. You'll discover Melbourne's stunning waterfront, picturesque parks, and iconic landmarks from a whole new perspective.
