Restaurant Dining With a Difference
Take restaurant dining to a whole new level and see the sights of Melbourne from a completely unique perspective.
Yarra River Cruises offer a range of exciting ways you can combine a beutiful lunch or dinner- with a boat trip on the Yarra River.
We offer visitors and locals the unique, memorable experience of culinary delights at three hand-picked restaurants along Southbank or the Docklands precinct. Combine fine dining, with luxury touring. Cruises on the Yarra River can be designed to include bridges, landmark buildings and beautiful waterside parklands. Take a short walk between courses to boost your appetite and anticipate the next instalment of fine food.
Who Is It For?
This is a great way to see the sights- and visitors to Melbourne enjoy the opportunity to see the flames on Southbank from a different angle. Locals welcome the fresh viewpoint of their own city, as well as dining at a mystery retaurant or two!
Hens parties are great candidates for combining a dining experience with a river boat trip. The journey on the water is relaxing and allows for some spontaneous dancing and partying in between courses of culinary delight.
If you're planning on celebrating a birthday or milestone, a private, skippered boat ride on the Yarra River provides a pivotal point of interest, to commemorate any special event. Nervous about "popping the question"? An engagement proposal can be hidden within a menu- the boat cruise on the Yarra River can provide a distraction to deliver a real surprise when the ring is presented. We've even hung personalised "Will You Marry Me" banners from bridges, revealed to the couple as the boat passes beneath the bridge or walkway. This is a different way to celebrate a romantic cruise in Melbourne.
Are you looking for a different way to impress a client, reward staff for their hard work, or celebrate a new merger or contract acquisition? Our Corporate Cruises can be combined with a fine dining experience at multiple restaurants. This enables everyone to enjoy some space between rounds of drinks or meal courses- and provides a relaxed atmosphere for discussing what's on the agenda for the day.
The 4 hour Yarra River Cruises progressive lunch/dinner cruises are suited for groups from 2-35(inclusive)
The pricing includes all three courses and the beverages.
