Melbourne Nature & Wildlife Tour

Visit the Blue Lake, spot local kangaroos, bushwalking & picnic


Want to get off the beaten track, out of the CBD and into the real Australian nature?

We want to take you on a relaxing afternoon picnic to a secret spot we know, the Blue Lake in Plenty Gorge! 

We'll pick you up from the CBD meeting point outside of the St Paul's Cathedral, and then we will head to Plenty Gorge to go bushwalking through this urban bushland. We will spot heaps of wild kangaroos, visit the Blue Lake and hike around the area.

The Blue lake is special because it really is a local only spot, usually very quiet or a few other people floating on the lake and hanging out. It's in the Aussie bushlands so you get a real taste for Australian nature by visiting this spot, only a short 40mins from the CBD by car.

What's included:
  • Local Aussie guide for the afternoon

  • Transport from the CBD to the Blue Lake in Plenty

  • Picnic food! Vegetarian & Vegan (e.g crackers and dip, fruit salad, chips, cakes and chocolate etc)

  • Water and Cordial - feel free to bring your own drinks

  • Chance to see wild kangaroos who are very a common sight in this area

Meeting Point
