2Hr Sightseeing Cruise Up & Down Yarra River

The Yarra River is the beating heart of Melbourne, snaking its way  through the city’s major precincts. A river cruise is the best way to escape the loud city noises and set off on a relaxing voyage, enjoying the sights and sounds of Melbourne from a fresh perspective.

This river cruise goes up and downstream – to the Docklands and River Gardens. Cruise the serene waters of the Yarra, pass under world-famous bridges, and marvel at Melbourne’s iconic skyline from the waters. Experience all of this and more from the spacious outer decks of a comfortable boat, or relax inside and enjoy them through the panoramic windows.

As you glide by renowned landmarks like Federation Square, Royal Botanic Gardens, Government House, the Crown Entertainment Complex, Docklands Stadium, and more, you will gain a deeper appreciation for Melbourne, known as one of the 'most liveable cities in the world'.

Keep your cameras handy at all times as the views just keep getting better by the minute! You’ll even see a 19th Century sailing ship, the ‘Polly Woodside’, not to mention Herring Island, the only artificial island on the Yarra. Oh, and did we not mention you’ll be sailing past Rod Laver Arena, where the Australian Open takes place every year? Yes, this cruise is full of surprises!

During your sightseeing adventure, you’ll also gain fascinating insights into Melbourne’s abundant history and culture from one of your knowledgeable guides. This makes it a fun, yet informative, sightseeing tour, so there’s no need for a second thought. Book your cruise today!
