Yarra River – Doon Reserve
Doon Reserve is one of the locals’ best kept secrets. The organic flow of the river is shady, gentle and mostly shallow making it a fantastic natural lazy river. Bring your own inflatable – ring, mattress, or small boat – get in at one end of the park and relax as the river takes you all the way around the reserve. This is an ideal activity for families and community groups.
