Enjoy the luxury of cruising Melbourne’s Yarra River in our opulently appointed four-seater Venetian-style gondolas. Relax in the velvet seats and sip sparkling as you glide past the city's finest attractions, from spectacular Federation Square to the sights and sounds of vibrant Southbank!

This gondola cruise is for two to four people so pick three friends or just one special other with whom to share this decadent experience.

When you arrive at the departure pontoon for your scheduled gondola cruise, one of our experienced gondoliers will be there to greet and help you into the boat. Based on traditional Venetian boat plans and built in Melbourne, our gondolas provide a luxurious way to cruise the Yarra 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 French sparkling will be ready on ice. You will also enjoy a cheese and antipasto platter on the cruise. Relax, sit back, with glass in hand, and take in the sights and sounds of Melbourne’s Yarra River.

Your gondolier will row the boat from a separate section at the rear. Moving at about two knots, your cruise will take you through the city section of Melbourne’s Yarra River. You’ll glide past all of the main attractions – the Exhibition Centre, Aquarium, Southbank and Crown Casino, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and the tranquil Alexandra Gardens.

At the completion of your one hour gondola cruise, you’ll be taken back to the pontoon and our gondolier will help you disembark.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Had a fabulous ride! We were given this as a gift from our daughter at Christmas time. We are from Western Australia and had friends staying with us in Melbourne who were from Newcastle. All four of us agreed it was one of the most "must do" experiences in Melbourne. Travelling down the river on a Gondola was serene and our Gondaleer was a fantastic host. Will do again, the only complaint - it was not long enough, we could have spent all evening on the Yarra. Thank you. 5 February 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank you for this lovely experience! This was a birthday present from my children. We were extremely happy with the service and help we received from Shane (Gondola Driver) and Paul (Gondola contact who arranged the timings and dates), to make it a memorable experience. My husband, brother and sister enjoyed ourselves thoroughly, and didn't want the experience to end. Everyone was really helpful and this experience was made that much more enjoyable because of this. Thank you again. We will certainly come back! 13 February 2012
