Discover the past and future of Melbourne’s river swimming culture on this boat tour.
As you cruise through the Yarra’s historical swim sites, local river lovers share their passion for remembering and returning river swimming in Melbourne. This boat tour with Michael O’Neill (Yarra Pools), Monique Woodward (WOWOWA), Felicity Strong (Lovell Chen) and international guest Marjetica Potrč (King’s Cross Pond Club designer) will explore the reasons why people stopped swimming in the Yarra and what it might take to for us to dive back in. The tour will take in Enterprize Park, the proposed site of a new riverside Yarra Pool.
