KAYAKING ON THE YARRA

Although Melbourne is situated on the shores of one of the largest bays on the Australian coast, the city's main water feature is the Yarra River. As it winds down from the Yarra Valley, it enters the City and provides much opportunity for leisure activities along its banks and in the water. We are lucky to live close to a beautiful spot along the Yarra, here shown. It is the Yarra close to Fairfield Boathouse.









You've got to love dogs!

  19. Beautiful river -- quiet and peaceful, my kind of place. But, I think that girl is kayaking, not canoing. I know this because I am trying, with limited success, to learn to kayak!

    1. Yes indeed it is kayaking, Sallie! You can tell I'm no water rat - they looked the same to me till I disambiguated the pair canoe/kayak with trusty old google. Now corrected!
