Katherine McAlpine on
 
Melbourne and its surrounds offer numerous trails designed for walking, riding and getting away from ‘it all’. Follow a heritage trail through city streets or cycle along a picturesque Yarra River path with views of the city. Experience the cultural and architectural elegance of central Melbourne or take a short drive to the city's scenic hinterland and beautiful beaches. Take this book with you for inspiration, walking the Yarra was a bsoloutley and cost you nothing more than a bottle of water, forget the expensive theme parks.
