Rowing, canoeing and boating on the Yarra

Melbourne Water commissioned some specific research on the Yarra River that focussed on what the real risks are for bathing and boating on the Yarra River. This research concluded that activities where there is less risk of swallowing the water, such as boating, wading and fishing, are safe all year round in all parts of the Yarra except for up to five days after heavy rainfall.
