Punting on the Lake

Treat your special someone — and your dog — to a leisurely BYO boat ride through the Royal Botanic Gardens.

It's something straight out of Bridget Jones' Diary, except there's nary a wet, smokin' Hugh Grant in sight. Sorry. We might not be as flashy and have as much bravado as our counterpart Sydney, but that's not to say Melbourne still doesn't pay its dues when it comes to outdoor activities in, on or around bodies of water. You can settle back in a wooden punt boat on the lake in the Royal Botanic Gardens with your special someone and be propelled into your most relaxed selves by a charming punter (again, sadly not Hugh). This fella will be in the full punting regalia of boating hat and red vest. BYO parasol, snacks and drinks, 'cause nothing says romance like being punted. Oh, and dogs are welcome, too.
