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.

Maribyrnong River Trail


This path starts and finishes at Southbank, just over the Yarra River from Flinders St Station, although you could easily join (or leave) it at other points where it comes close to the train line, such as in Docklands, Kensington or Flemington.
