This stunning Kayak Melbourne tour of Melbourne starts off on the banks of the Yarra River in central Melbourne across from the Convention Centre and the famous Polly Woodside tall ship.

Discover why Melbourne has been voted one of the world's most bike friendly cities as you start the tour pedalling along the spectacular Yarra trail track. The tour is almost entirely on safe scenic bike paths and takes in all the iconic sights of the city and many hidden secrets. Your local guide shares insightful commentary and stops for great photo opportunities along the way.

You will get a real feel for Melbourne's character as you pedal past the legendary Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, Fitzroy Gardens, Federation Square, Victorian Parliament Buildings and Queen Victoria Market. Your guide will give you a unique insider's take on the city as you pedal through graffiti covered alleys and get the scoop on the hip cafés, bars and shops along the way.

The tour uses unique "urban" bikes that are light, compact, manoeuvrable, easy to use and fun to ride. As Melbourne is mainly flat this tour is manageable for all levels and appropriate for ages 10 and up.
