Run the Tan
The Tan is Melbourne’s most popular running track. It’s 3.8 km and circles the beautiful Botanical gardens. It goes right past the Shrine of Remembrance and the Arts Centre spire. Find out where the Tan is.
Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC)
MSAC has two swimming pools, indoor basketball courts, squash, badminton, table tennis and a gym.
Yarra Bend Park
Walk or run along the tracks next to the Yarra River amongst the trees and birds!
The 1000 Steps Walk is an institution for fitness enthusiasts across Melbourne. The 3km trek is one of the most popular spots in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, but its steep terrain is not to be underestimated.
