We are passionate about taking you off the beaten track, creating positive experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. We are committed to ensuring that our day trips, weekends or tours are unique, attainable, well researched, affordable and tailored for the enjoyment of small groups. Our adventures cater for people from many walks of life, age groups and motivations. We aim to give you the very best of what nature and the outdoors has to offer, leaving you with a smile from ear to ear and a sense of accomplishment.

Pack more action into your day with this combined experience. If you love walking and you’d like to explore some more of Melbourne with a great paddle down our iconic river then take this opportunity. With the usual Take Shape Adventures’ attention to detail and full support, PLUS all your gear provided and support form the crew at Peak Adventure!

What an opportunity to explore both up and down one of the best sections of urban Melbourne – without feeling as though you’re in the suburbs at all. We’ll take all our special tracks on the walk and you’ll be amazed at how much bushland walking we can find for you. From the well known pathways through to little side tracks and sneaky little shortcuts – we’ll have you well and truly lost in your surroundings in no time. Enjoy a yummy lunch on the banks of the river before going through a quick safety briefing and getting ready to paddle!

You’ll feel safe and secure in our stable sit-on-top boats, and have the complete attention of our certified and experienced guides. Jump on board and practice some strokes before paddling and drifting down the mighty Yarra River. Although it’s right there flowing through our wonderful city, and you’ve all definitely heard of it – to be on it, floating down with the current and seeing for yourself the way it winds through native forest, past some of the biggest houses in Melbourne and chatting about the way we’ve used and abusing it over the years is a great experience for anyone living amongst it’s many tributaries!

No paddling experience is necessary for this event so take this opportunity to join us on something a little different.
