Explore Melbourne's bayside suburbs and encounter some friendly (and furry) locals!
Beaches, penguins, fish & chips and the perfect spot to take in a Melbourne sunset
Summer evenings in Melbourne are best spent down by the beach! What better way to watch the setting sun over Port Philip Bay and the marvellous city skyline than by bike!
We'll ride the Bay's scenic bike path through the historic and picturesque bayside suburbs of Port Melbourne, Albert Park and St Kilda, all the way to Brighton Beach (home of the famous beach boxes). During the tour you will get a chance to meet some of Melbourne's friendly, feathered locals and take part in a classic Melbournian summer activity, Fish and Chips on the beach.
There are many photo opportunities along the way including great views of the city from the famous St.Kilda Pier.
We need to cover a bit more ground on the Penguin Plus tour than the others we offer. So to keep it relaxing, whilst still turning over the kms, we've decided to give you a little boost and jump on our new Lekker E-bikes.
