SUNSET ON A WATERBIKE IN THE CITY
Sunset is a beautiful time on the water, and the changing colours of the City make a stunning backdrop as you cruise along the Swan River on a performance waterbike, in the heart of the City.
An hour long pedal, taking in sweeping views and changing colours of the City, South Perth and Kings park as the sun sets to the West. Elizabeth Quay is a magnificent sight from the water as the lowering sun reflects beautifully on surrounding buildings, creating a very special experience for couples, families and friends.
Safe, stable and incredibly easy to use, waterbikes are a whole lot of fun. Cruising at a leisurely pace, there’s plenty of time to take in incredible views, stop for some iconic photos, and learn a thing or two along the way (if you feel inclined)
