Get Moving & Discover Melbourne Outdoors


With bright and sunny days without the scorch, one of the best ways to explore┬áMelbourne is through outdoor activities. Discover Melbourne’s electric vibe as you run, bike, drive, and stroll your way through what is considered to be one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Outdoor activities in Melbourne


One of the best ways to discover Melbourne is through walking around its lush parks, gorgeous gardens, lovely CBD, and charming bayside scenery. Whether you want to take a walking tour or go at your own pace, your walk is going to be easy-peasy with Melbourne’s flat landscape.



When the weather is pleasant through most of the year, you’re going to want to make the most of it. Pack a picnic lunch for the day and wander through any of the charming riversides, coastlines, baysides, or even the lush botanic gardens of Melbourne. It’s a great way to get some fresh air, light exercise, and exploring all in one.



You can bring your own if you’re a serious biker or you can rent a bike in the city to start pedalling between Melbourne’s cafes, bars, parks, and trails. Don’t worry, Melb has a good bike culture so you can coast along through bike paths no problem. The slopes are slight and gentle so you’ll barely break a sweat as you glide through the Yarra River’s gardens and parks.

Pro tip: Safety first! There’s an actual bike culture in Australia and they take rules very seriously. Follow the road rules, wear appropriate clothing, wear helmets and other safety gear, and affix lights and reflective gear when driving during the night. If you respect the rules, people on the road will respect you.



Gone are the days when golf is just for old and elite men, and Melbourne’s niche market for golfers of all kinds and ages is steadily growing. From Mickey Mouse courses where anyone can finish under, to championship courses for the pros of tomorrow, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Melbourne’s exquisite Golf courses.


Scenic Flights

If you want a more daring way of discovering the city, watch as it comes alive from the skies as you float over in the basket of a balloon or helicopter. There’s nothing quite like watching the hues of yellow and orange rise as the city wakes in a buzz.


Water Sports

From chartering a yacht, to kayaking downstream, to swimming in the sea, to exciting water rides in pools, you’ll be spoilt for choice with so much to do in Melbourne’s sparkling waters.
