IR2020 is pumped up by Melbourne Water

We're also contributing to WaterAid this time around. They do great stuff for clean water.

Handy Things to Know

1. Total boat capacity is 180kgs. Single boats available on the day, just let someone know if you'd like to do it solo

2. Public transport is by far the best. Trams and trains (Footscray or Flemington station) will serve you well.

3. No booze on the river. That's for celebrating when you finish!

4. Travel light. It's Feb in Melbourne so it's warm and the boats are snug with two.

5. Look out for new friends on the river. We try to be as hands off as possible once you cast off. It's your river to explore with others on the journey.


Environmental considerations of IR2020? Yes. We can now recycle the boats if we can't use them for another IR event. No plastic bottles either.

Kids? Only if they're 13 or older. If under 18 you'll need to be with someone 18 or older. That's our insurers talking.

Parking? Yes, at Footscray Park, but it's limited and you'll have to walk back and pick up your car.

Finishing spot? Near Footscray Community Arts Centre.

Keeping boats? Not this time. We need to reuse them, and that's more environmentally beneficial.

What's IR for? Fun! And we actively support many organisations that work on river health, clean water and bettering urban environments - WaterAid, Yarra Riverkeepers Association and Melbourne Water.

Volunteer? Yes. Check our website.
