What you can expect

For one of the most comprehensive cruises of the Yarra River in Melbourne, this option incorporates all the major highlights of the city's waterfront sights and landmarks into a single great cruise package! Relax aboard the large, comfortable cruising vessel, soaking up the informative commentary while gliding past all of Melbourne's essential river attractions including Southgate, The Victorian Arts Centre, historical Docklands, river gardens, shipping port, Sporting Precinct and panoramic city skyline.

This 2-hour cruise departs every morning at 11:00am and makes for an outstanding way to see the best of Victoria's capital from one of the unique vantage points available - the water. Be sure to bring your camera along for the cruise as the Yarra River offers views of Melbourne's essentials that those walking or driving typically don't get to see; simply a great morning out in Melbourne!

The cruise was nice and the crew were friendly. Thanks.

I had a problem with gift vouchers, but Experience Oz solved the problem and gave the equivalent money as credits and I used them for the next purchase. Sorry I misjudged Experience Oz. I'm looking forward for my next experience, Sydney hop on hop off bus tour.

The Melbourne sightseeing river cruise was amazing

The Melbourne sightseeing river cruise was amazing. The staff were very friendly, The tour guide was extremely funny and very knowledgeable. The boat we went on also had free coffee provided. I would recommend the garden cruise if you just want a calm boat ride but if you want a more exciting informational one, I suggest the downstream Yarra tour. I would definitely ride again!

Beautiful river cruise

Beautiful river cruise, very informative tour guide. The guide did have a tendency to mumble sometimes, so some information was lost. The other crew seemed a little tired and over it but overall I would recommend the cruise for sightseers and history buffs.
