Jumped on at Southgate and headed towards Docklands on MV Grower - a great little timber vessel with some history and class. Tip - don't stand up on the deck when passing under very low bridges - you could lose your head. After about 15-20 minutes returned to Southgate, picked up some new passengers and headed in the other direction... 更多
My husband and i had an hour cruise on the M.V. Grower on the Yarra river. Lovely old , wooden boat, with bench style seats with cushions. The cost was $22 for an hour which we think was well worth it. The staff are so friendly and could not do enough for us. The commentary was very informative and even... 更多
Travelled on Eureka, but not so much on the website for this boat. As soon as you step on you appreciate the care the owners have for it, paint gleaming, varnish that looks like glass and comfortable furnishings. I choose this boat over MV Grower because of an interesting mixed layout of cushioned and table areas, all properly build into... 更多
picked by chance as they were just about to sail, and what a wise choice, nice boat, not too busy, and you get to see an awful lot, we went both upstream towards the stadiums and then down stream to the bridge, and both were good, and took longer than the 1hr cruise they should have been, which was fine... 更多
We went on this cruise with great anticipation - ready to learn and enjoy the very significant Yarra River that weaves its way from the ocean through the CBD of Melbourne. Alas, while the cruise was pleasant, the commentary was disappointing. Despite this River playing a critical role in the development of the settlement of Melbourne, our host provided virtually... 更多
We had a one hour trip which we thoroughly enjoyed - it was an excellent and informative trip. The boat is relatively smallness has history going back to the 1920s. Considering we were sitting outside at the back of the boat, we found the commentary was clear and precise and our captain negotiated very low bridges brilliantly. Of all the... 更多
A lovely old boat with seating mainly inside but room for about 12 on the open aft deck we enjoyed a leisurely one hour cruise from Southgate. For $22 (adults) you have about 30 minutes upstream plus 30 minutes downstream from the departure point taking in the parks, stadiums and regenerated docklands. On a sunny day it was beautiful and... 更多
We had a lovely boat-ride up both ends of the river. This is a fun kids trip on this well maintained boat. Take some snakes as there is no food on board.
A lovely way to spend an hour sightseeing in Melbourne. We enjoyed the tour aboard a classic old vessel, with a Captan who was happy to share his knowledge of the local area, it's history and attractions... Though not cheap at $50 for a family of four.
