    • Paddle self guided along the Yarra River at your own pace
    • Admire a host of native fauna and flora by the riverbank

    Strike out on your own or with some friends and explore the sparkling Yarra River lined with untouched bushland and brimming with bird life. On arrival, you get a quick instruction on kayak basics like how to hold your paddle and how to adjust the foot pedals. Then, it's time to grab your life jacket and be on your way down the river. The first section of the river is full of parks with natural bushland. Enjoy the peace and serenity of your surroundings, filled with lovely birdsong, as you smoothly glide across the water. You'll also be able to see beautiful historic houses along the river banks.

    Cruising at your own pace, you can decide where you would like to stop for lunch, at one of the many riverside rowing ramps or amongst the sculptures at Herring Island. Herring island has BBQs and toilet facilities - so bring along some food to cook up. Remember to keep an eye out for native lizards, water dragons and seals that frequent the river as you stroke along. Towards the end of the 12km journey, admire the stunning city views from your kayak. Once you have arrived at Princes Bridge, you will be transported back to your car, at the start point.
