Melbourne - Docklands to the Royal Botanic Gardens with bike share

Melbourne yarra river tour by city bike, Docklands to Kings Garden
One app, some friends, sunshine and a bit of time. All you need to spend the perfect sightseeing time along the Yarra river. The best about Melbourne Bike Share system is that if you manage to drop your bike at the next station before 30min have gone by, there is no need to pay more. You can get a new bike later on completely free! For less than 3€ it is therefore possible to cover large distances.

I never owned a bike as child, so I am not very good at cycling. In fact, I was quite scared to try this because of my past experiences in Stockholm, where I tried to learn but each and every attempt would be a super stressful event. Swedes are all seasoned on wheels but also completely unable to tolerate someone who would move somewhat slowly and in a relatively shaky way. However in Melbourne, people are chill. I did not have any trouble and enjoyed the ride - while feeling super accomplished after completing all the way from Docklands to the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The views along the Yarra river are impressive. Tones of skyscrapers blended seamlessly with more traditional buildings and customs, like this kayaking team.

Once in the Royal Botanic Gardens we took a walk around the small lake and observed birds as cool as the black swam below. We also learnt how to smell the Eucalyptus and explored the lovely cactus garden.Melbourne yarra river tour by city bike, Docklands to Kings Garden

Atop the Shrine of Remembrance, the views are breathtaking with all the skyscrapers lining along the Yarra River.
