If a cruise down the Yarra River floats your boat
Strap on your best boat shoes and channel your inner seaman for the return of the Inflatable Regatta. The annual pilgrimage of the inflatable boats down the Yarra River is back on February 11, 2017.
A whopping 1000 one and two-seater boats will lazily sail down the Yarra starting from the Yarra Bank Reserve. The dinghies will embark on their short run down the river throughout the day between 9am to 6pm, and your journey will be soundtracked by live music from a riverside stage. If you're not into rowing, you can watch all the action from the banks.
Courtney Carthy, one of the founders of the Inflatable Regatta, has been vocal in his support of returning the Yarra River to its former glory, and this year the event has teamed up with Melbourne Water to help clean up the Yarra.
