Melbourne Walking | Bike Paths

There are many walking and cycling shared paths that wind along our waterways and allow you to take in the 84Hundred*.

Whether you like going for a bike ride, a jog or a leisurely stroll, there are many places for you to enjoy.

Before you go, see if there’s a Know Your River brochure for the river or creek you’re going to visit, to learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the waterway.
