It's a pleasant ride or stroll along a well-defined pedestrian/cyclist path. It's great for locals to enjoy a stress-free outing. However, I wouldn't recommend overseas travellers who have a tight schedule or who can find similar trails at home.

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
