We went on this cruise with great anticipation - ready to learn and enjoy the very significant Yarra River that weaves its way from the ocean through the CBD of Melbourne. Alas, while the cruise was pleasant, the commentary was disappointing. Despite this River playing...More

A lovely old boat with seating mainly inside but room for about 12 on the open aft deck we enjoyed a leisurely one hour cruise from Southgate. For $22 (adults) you have about 30 minutes upstream plus 30 minutes downstream from the departure point taking...More
