your experience

Known for the rugged splendor of its coastline, Melbourne stands out as one of Australia’s top attractions. On this cruise, you will see many of the city’s iconic attractions such as the Eureka Tower. This imposing skyscraper remained the city’s tallest tower until 2019. As you pass the south bank of the Yarra River, you will spot the Crown Casino - the first-ever casino operated by the now renowned ‘Crown’ brand.

The attractions don’t stop there. The South Wharf precinct houses the famous Polly Woodside, an iron-hulled sailing vessel that was built all the way back in 1885! The three-masted ship, preserved at the Melbourne Maritime Museum, is visible from your ferry. As you delve further into the bay, you can see the entire Melbourne city skyline in all its glory. Scienceworks, Bolte Bridge, Westgate Bridge, and Flinders Street Station are a few of the other noteworthy sights on this tour.
