Enjoy a serene cruise with Punt Tours Melbourne around the islands of the picturesque Ornamental Lake in Melbourne's stunning Royal Botanic Gardens. Settle back in an elegant wooden punt to enjoy a unique view of one of the world's finest gardens as your professional punter tells you about its history, environment, wildlife and plants.

Punts depart regularly from the Punt Tours Melbourne landing in front of the Terrace Cafe, inside Gate A of the Royal Botanic Gardens (corner Alexandra Avenue and Anderson Street). Tours take 30 minutes and are suitable for all ages. Reservations are recommended, and can be made through the website.

You can also enjoy a Punt Tour-High Tea Package with Punt Tours Melbourne and the Terrace Cafe, or book a charter cruise for your wedding or function in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
