If you're looking for the ultimate indulgence, then this gondola cruise package is guaranteed to impress. Cruising Melbourne’s Yarra River in our opulently appointed Venetian-style gondola, you'll enjoy a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne, a platter of food delights and 12 long-stem red roses!
As you stroll down to 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 are 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 Moet & Chandon Champagne will be ready on ice and a delicious platter of gourmet food delights will await you along with 12 long-stem, red roses. Relax back, glass in hand 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 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 1 hour gondola cruise, you’ll be taken back to the pontoon and our gondolier will help you disembark.
