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 and new Drifter II kayaks, lifejackets and paddles!
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 very stable and secure double boats – complete with space for your gear and seats with backrests. Plus have the complete attention of our experienced guides on the river. 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 have both used and abused 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.
16 people maximum on this event. Minimum age is 14 years.
Our guides will have a waterproof bag for electronics, phones etc.
One of the most common questions we get asked is “ Can I come on the trip by myself?”
Most of the people that come on our tours come by themselves. Our community is built on friendships that have been made on our trips, experiencing something life changing together, the shared memories and also goals to do more in the future!
We encourage people not to be anxious about coming on these trips by yourself as we promise you will leave with some like minded friends and be really glad you made the decision to get out of your comfort zone and join in.
Our community is our backbone. We have had so many people start with no hiking experience, basic fitness and not knowing anyone on our trips. These same people have gone on to do some incredible multi day hiking trips with us and their friends they have met in our community. Witnessing the development of their fitness, confidence, experience, friendships and happiness is why we do what we do. Come join us and let us help you get from the couch to the top of the mountain!
Experiences, not things. The moments that take your breath away. The feeling of accomplishment and the realisation that you are capable of so much more than what you thought. The views that blow your mind and the ticking off of bucket list items. We take all the hard work out of it for you- we organise the lot so you can just turn up and get the best of your experience without all the headaches of organising/logistics. We make it easy for you to do all the things you want to do- you just need to turn up and be ready to jump into life!
