Capital City Trail

Consisting almost entirely of smooth, flat pavement, the 29 kilometre Capital City Trail circuit is a fabulous way of seeing Melbourne by cycle or walk.

It starts at Southbank following the Yarra past landmarks such as the Victorian Arts Centre, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the MCG, Melbourne Park and Como House, Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park, Burnley Gardens, Dights Falls and Yarra Bend Park.

For the second half of the Capital City Trail, you follow the old Inner Circle Railway through Royal Park, Moonee Ponds Creek towards Docklands, pass the Polly Woodside Maritime Museum and then the Exhibition Centre, before making it back to Southbank.

What makes the route so wonderful is that besides taking in many of the city's highlights, it contains plentiful shops, cafes, restaurants and parks in which you can refuel and recharge.
