If you’ve already explored Melbourne on foot, see the city from a different perspective on an evening dinner cruise—a great way to avoid the daytime heat and see Melbourne illuminated by night. Without having to jostle among crowds, you’ll sail the Yarra River and pass Federation Square, Flinders Station, and the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria while enjoying a 4-course meal and unlimited sparkling wine, beer, and spirits all night.

What to Expect

Your evening excursion begins at Southbank Promenade, where you’ll board your vessel and take a seat. As you sail down the Yarra River, you’ll see top Melbourne attractions such as the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Flinders Station, Rod Laver Arena, and Riverside Park illuminated by night. 

Enjoy a premium 4-course meal of Australian-inspired cuisine, including lamb, beef, and seafood, accompanied by free-flowing wine, beer, sparkling wine, and spirits. Your meal culminates with cheese, coffee, and a glass of port or liqueur.

At the end of the cruise, the boat returns to Southbank Promenade.

Underwhelming and disappointing

Having experienced river cruises in other countries and in comparison to one taken in Brisbane, this cruise by far left a sour note. The river cruise is advertised as a 3 hour cruise, the actual FLOAT on the boat that zig zagged back and forth...More

Cold, boring and alcohol the only savior
