This is a beautiful trail that winds its way around the outskirts of Melbourne. It follows the Yarra River in parts and there are also parts that are quite industrial and are covered by motorways overhead. I did not have time to complete the full...More

We did this cycle trail a few years back and really enjoyed it so thought we would try it again. Like the true pioneers we are we decided to do it clockwise this time. Big mistake, as the signage is close to non-existent. Last time...More

It is a great route, with easy grades, well made paths, occasional shade trees and seats and some rare water sources. However, there are no toilets along the route. A pleasant walk or cycle and well connected to major roads, where there is food and...More

I love to walk so I walked this trail although a lot of people cycle it. Lovely bush scenery along the Yarra and plenty of places to stop and relax if the weather is nice. It’s pretty flat most of the way. The signage in...More

The trail starts at the St Kilda Road end at Alexandra gardens and continues along the river and is a great way to see the city across the river and the parklands to the south.

This was highlight of trip!!! All of it was lovely but I'd particularly recommend under the motorways weirdly enough. Very cool ride, enjoy. Take lots of breaks and it'll take you a good 4-5 hours

I had previously walked along part of this trail. This time we decided to bike a long section of it. It is well maintained but we did get lost and this could be due to a lack of signage at a particular section where it...More

If you get one of the blue hire bikes in Melbourne CBD, you can ride it along the capital city trail. Well worth doing, although strenuous in parts. Great place to walk along the Yarra and soak up the Melbourne lifestyle. If you are highly...More
