For one month, and one month only, get zippy over the Yarra

For one month, and one month only, get zippy over the Yarra

Words by Alice McDonald

It’s time to fly.

Your next trip to the CBD has been upgraded.

Firefly Zipline Melbourne is offering the first-ever zipline over a body of water in Australia. Grab together your most adrenaline-seeking buddies and zoom over Federation Square, over the Yarra and into Alexandra Gardens at a whopping 40 km per hour on a 130-metre zipline.

You’ll find yourself nine meters up into the heavens on a dual-line zipline – first date idea? I think yes.
