On our last trip to Melbourne in November last year we enjoyed a Champagne Cruise with Venice on the Yarra. It was absolutely fantastic. The experience was so memorable as we enjoyed our bottle of bubbly and watched the sights from our Gondola. The sunset was perfect and I must mention our Gondolier - he was so informative AND a...

The guys were so helpful over the phone to organise all the details. We were greeted by a well dressed and very friendly boatman who was happy to chat but also very aware of the need for privacy. We were served a delicious champagne which is still one of our favourites today. Such a relaxing way to spend an evening.... More

You will be welcomed into the romantic ambiance complete with velvet seats, plush upholstery, soft music and chilled champagne in a cosily lit set-up. In cool weather, rugs will be provided to keep you warm. The gondolier will take his place from a separate section at the back, so you can enjoy all the privacy you want.

went on this gondola years ago. my husband and i were just so relaxed, we forgot to go to his mums birthday dinner after. so, to make up for it, we took her and her partner on the gondola. the women were treated like queens, each receiving a beautiful rose. with champagne waiting for us when we got on.

Venice on the Yarra was an amazing experience for our wedding anniversary a beautiful way to spend time together on the Yarra River, Melbourne sure looks different from the water at night. We loved it, it's a must do in Melbourne.

Very reasonable and great romantic packages available. Paul was our driver and took photos of us on our cruise and played our own music. Great selection of fresh roses, champagne and chocolates. Best time to do this is before sunset as we got to see all the lights on the waterfront light up on the trip back to the Casino... More

Went on Gondola with Michael as our driver and he was very pleasant and good for a chat without being in your face. The boat was beautiful and we had the cheese platter and champagne which was well worth it. We went on a 5.15 cruise and the lights of Melbourne were out by the time we finished but suggest... More

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful romantic cruise on an authentic venetian gondola on Melbourne's Yarra River - who would of thought ! This was much better then Venice. We enjoyed a bottle of sparking wine as we slowly cruised along south bank past all the sights. Our gondolier Shane was fantastic and this was a wonderful way to... More
