Luxury Gondola Cruises Melbourne
There is no better way to enjoy Melbourne than a cruise along the city’s Yarra River. From the exciting transformation of the Docklands, the bright lights and bustle of the Southgate precinct to the gentle seclusion of the botanic gardens.
Melbourne’s Yarra provides a host of sights and sounds and Venice on the Yarra offers you a special opportunity to cruise this beautiful river in our unique Venetian style gondolas.
Stroll down to the departure pontoon for your scheduled cruise and one of our experienced gondoliers will be there to greet and help you into the boat. Based on Venetian boat plans and built in Melbourne, our gondolas are a luxurious way to cruise the river. Each Gondola takes up to four passengers and is opulently appointed with upholstered velvet seats, plush cushions, warm rugs and a fold over canopy to keep customers warm and dry if the weather is cool. A cosy romantic ambience is created with soft music and gentle lighting.
When you step into the boat a bottle of quality champagne will be ready on ice. You can now just relax back with a glass of champagne and take in the sights and sounds of Melbourne’s Yarra river.
Your gondolier will row the boat for you from a separate section at the rear of the boat. Moving at about 2 knots your cruise will travel through the city section of Melbourne’s Yarra river. You’ll glide past all the main attractions – the Exhibition Centre, Aquarium, Southbank and Crown Casino, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and the tranquil Alexandra Gardens.
The cruises depart and disembark from the Crown Casino floating landing or from the pontoons at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre and Southgate (the departure point will be confirmed when you make your booking). At the completion of your cruise you’ll be taken back to the pontoon and our gondolier will help you disembark. You’ll be in the heart of the Crown/Southbank precinct with plenty of entertainment options to continue your evening if you so wish.
