The Capital City Trail is a dual-use cycle and pedestrian trail. Getting around it would be an awfully long walk, so most people prefer to cycle. The Yarra Bend park is a good place to start. The Capital City Trail also connects to other trails,...More

I’ve cycled this circular trail in both directions and multiple times but you can run it or walk it. The path is fairly clearly marked, where it isn’t either follow the river or follow others! Two lanes (keep-left) are marked on much of the pavement...More

It is a great route, with easy grades, well made paths, occasional shade trees and seats and some rare water sources. However, there are no toilets along the route. A pleasant walk or cycle and well connected to major roads, where there is food and...More

The trail starts at the St Kilda Road end at Alexandra gardens and continues along the river and is a great way to see the city across the river and the parklands to the south.
