Great ride around the beautiful inner eastern suburbs and then into the north. But very easy to take a wrong turn due to the lack of signage.

Merri Creek is quite famous. To the credit of the local authorities, the Merri Creek Track has been restored and upgraded, so now you can go from Clifton Hill to the inner city, walking or cycling. More needs to be done, but it's off to...More

I’m not going to lie - we got a little bit lost. It’s one of those places that Google Maps doesn’t seem to really know exactly where it is and what paths are accessible. We hired bicycles and after taking a wrong turn that lead...More
