Globy does Melbourne

The time has come to open the door on Victoria in the way that only Global Paddler can. Where better to start than its cosmopolitan capital Melbourne? The Visit Victoria website says that “Melbourne is a city of endless possibilities” and dares you to “take a chance and see where it leads you” so that is exactly what I have done. I have taken the past couple of weeks to put together an itinerary that I hope will help me to experience the best paddling that Melbourne has to offer as well as taking in a few extras. It goes a little something like this…

I will be reporting my progress on the Global Paddler Facebook page and with any luck I might even get a chance to post some trip reports on the Water Views Blog. Paddle guides for the best of these places will also feature on the Global Paddler website and in future Global Paddler publications for Victoria.
