If kayaking in Melbourne wasn’t a unique enough experience for you, why not kayak in Melbourne by moonlight? This Melbourne kayak tour is certainly not one to be missed, as it’s a way to not only get a feel of Melbourne but also discover the city from a perspective that so few get to experience.
Your Melbourne kayak tour will start in Victoria Harbour, which is located in the Docklands. After a quick but thorough safety brief that will introduce you to a few paddle techniques, you’ll take to the water and explore the Docklands. This will give you a chance to get acquainted and comfortable with your kayak, and learn a little about this area of Melbourne, too.
Next up it’s time for a bit of dinner, and instead of getting out of your kayak to find food, the food will be bought to you! You’ll enjoy an ‘on water’ dining experience by tucking into some fish and chips right from the comfort of your kayak. As if this tour couldn’t get more unique!
After your meal you’ll continue onwards on this Melbourne night tour upstream, under the iconic Bolte Bridge and through to Melbourne’s downtown. Kayak past swanky Crown Casino and alongside stylish Southbank. Paddle by the legendary Flinders Street Railway Station and beneath Princes Bridge before arriving at the approach to Melbourne’s enormous sporting precinct. This Melbourne tour will show you all these infamous Melbourne landmarks from your kayak, creating a magical evening you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
Your Melbourne kayak tour will end at the boat landing area in Southgate, right in the heart of Melbourne and directly across from Federation Square. Here your local guide will be able to give you a few tips on where to continue your evening in Melbourne, or can help you arrange transport back to your accommodation.
Melbourne’s Yarra River is an excellent location for novice paddlers to experience kayaking for the first time.
