about and services

Yarra Trail Medical was formed during the COVID-19 global pandemic, where the people of Melbourne endured some of the longest lockdowns in the world. Severely restricted in their activities and suffering from the effects of lockdown, people turned in droves to walking in nature - on the trails of the Yarra and her tributaries that extend across Melbourne.


These trail walks had meaningful and lasting effects on many people's physical, psychological and emotional health and strengthened relationships with each other and their communities. 

We look forward to working with you as you continue your health journey at Yarra Trail Medical.
