We went up & down on the Yarra river 1-1 hour to each direction. As the boat turns, you don’t need to worry about missing a spot - just remember where to look on your way back. The boat is average, but well equipped (clean restroom, open deck at the back, good coffee/tea for free incl.) Great experience, very friendly staff, could not recommend enough!

Really interesting tour led by Den. It was great to learn more about Australia's indigenous people. Worth doing as part of a walk around the stunning gardens.

Den was an amazing guide, he was funny, knowledgeable and very easy going. It was awesome to learn about aboriginal culture from another mob.

A relaxing great way to see Melbourne on the Yarra enjoyed it very much
