Float Maribyrnong

The Maribyrnong Course

Why should the Yarra get all the action?
This year we’re taking Inflatable Regatta into the heart of the West.
This maiden voyage starts besides Flemington Racecourse, taking in the unsung beauty of the Maribyrnong and featuring amazing view of the CBD skyline.
After floating lazily for 2km (with a bit of paddling), you’ll disembark and head straight into to an after party with live music, drinks and great food.
