We started this adventure along the banks of the Yarra opposite the MCG, where we met our guide, Paul, from Kayak Melbourne. After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on dry land, we set off for an exploration of the sights in Victoria Harbour.
We kayaked past Flinders Street Railway Station, Crown Casino and alongside stylish Southbank.
We witnessed helicopters landing at the helipad opposite Crown, coming from the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park. Some of the passengers were the Formula One drivers who had finished for the day.
We then proceeded to the Bolte Bridge, where we witnessed a breath-taking sunset.
After making it to the Bolte Bridge, we tied up the kayaks to a dock in a beautiful marina, where burgers and chips were waiting for us. It was a well-earned break after all the paddling to get there.
It was then time to witness the dramatic fireball display at Crown. It was a spectacular view from the water.
We then headed back after seeing some "Crocodiles" in the water. It was a fantastic night for all that came, and we would like to thank Kayak Melbourne for making our experience special!
