Our passion for the environment should extend beyond the products we use and the way we do things at home. The activities and experiences we choose to take part in when we go out with our friends and families can be eco-friendly too!
Don't worry if you're not sure where to start, we've put together this list of the best eco-friendly activities to do in Melbourne, whether you're visiting for the weekend or you've lived here your whole life.
1. Visit The 12 Apostles
One of Victoria's best known attractions, The 12 Apostles are located a few hours drive west of Melbourne. With the stunning Great Ocean Road as your backdrop, you'll never regret a trip to this part of Victoria. Pack a picnic lunch in your Keeper Satchel and enjoy the sights!
2. A Cycling Tour in Echuca
Hire a Green Pedal E-bike or book a guided cycling tour. This is a relaxing and eco-friendly activity for solo travellers, couples, groups of friends and families. With beautiful cycling tracks, river trails, incredible views and tonnes of natural beauty, cycling through Echuca should definitely be on your list during your stay.
3. Visit CERES
CERES is a beautiful community made up of markets, cafes, organic farms, community gardens and play spaces. It's the perfect relaxed day out for anyone wanting to spend the day somewhere lush and green but not too far out of the city.
4. Lal Lal Falls
Venture out to some lesser known waterfalls, like Lal Lal Falls, located 20 minutes away from Ballarat. You'll arrive at the Falls and be met with a large grassy area, a playground for kids, picnic tables, toilets, and an undercover. The perfect day out!
5. Lost and Found Market
If you're into thrifting, this is thrifting at the next level. The huge space at the Lost and Found Market has more than 60 stalls full of vintage furniture and clothing, eclectic art, books, records and more! It's located centrally too, so you'll have plenty of choices for coffee stops too.
6. Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park
A beautiful day out, the diversity and abundance of marine flora and fauna in this region are next to none. Wandering through a national park is an eco-friendly and animal friendly option to visiting a zoo.
Hopefully you've found something eco-friendly and fun to do while you're in Melbourne. All of these activities are doable as singles, couples, with a group of friends or with your family. Don't forget to pack your Keeper bags full of yummy snacks to keep you going!
