Discover the bends of the iconic Yarra River that runs through the vibrant city of Melbourne. Pass by famous landmarks while riding a fun waterbike on a guided journey and learn about all the major sites sitting on the edge of the river, as well as some of the main bridges.

After an informative safety briefing, you'll be taken to your waterbike and given a lifejacket before heading upriver to explore the Botanical Gardens and views of the Government House. Turning under the Swan Street Bridge, pass the iconic Rod Laver Arena Precinct, with MCG in the background.

Ride along Birrarung Marr Park and continue downriver. Pass under the Princes Bridge into the heart of Melbourne, past Flinders Street Station and SEA Life Aquarium with the Rialto building towering in the background.

Turn at Webb Bridge, taking in Yarra's Edge Marine before passing the Polly Woodside Tallship and Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre. Continuing upstream, pass Crown Casino, the South Bank precinct with Eureka Tower soaring to the skyline above.
