Rowing on the Yarra has a long tradition as Melbourne's historic rowing boathouses on the banks of the Yarra River in Alexandra Gardens testify. These are home to following Melbourne rowing clubs:
- Banks Rowing Club 
- Mercantile Rowing Club 
- La Trobe University Rowing Club 
- Melbourne Rowing Club 
- Melbourne University Boat Club 
- Yarra Yarra Rowing Club 
- Richmond Rowing Club 
These photos were taken early in the morning and most fo the rowers are University students doing their practice runs.
