No visit to Melbourne would be complete without an award-winning cruise on the Yarra River with Melbourne River Cruises. Enjoy fantastic views, informative commentary and complimentary tea and coffee in the comfort of a river cruiser.

Choose from the River Gardens up river cruise or the Port and Docklands down river cruise.

For the complete city experience why not combine both cruises on the Melbourne Highlights Cruise? All vessels are fully enclosed with a small outdoor deck.

Melbourne River Cruises also offer cruises down river and across to Williamstown. This service cruises down past the historic port and docklands area.

This ferry service departs daily and allows you to explore a wonderful array of cafes, restaurants, galleries and spectacular water views.

You might also like to join Melbourne River Cruises' own cruising restaurant. The Spirit of Melbourne Cruising Restaurant offers spectacular scenery of Melbourne while you enjoy a four course wine and dining menu.
