One of the best and most unique ways to take in the Melbourne waterways is with Melbourne Tramboat Scenic Cruises.

A unique, different way to cruise in style and comfort.

These cruise vessels are quite unique looking with a fully enclosed lower deck and an open upper deck to take in the scenery as you cruise past ships, docking yards, skyscrapers and parks and gardens.

It Is Basically A cross Between A Boat and An Old Melbourne Green Tram.

  • Cruise all the way up the Yarra River as far as Hawthorn taking in the Melbourne Skyline including the MCG, the beautiful parks and gardens that line the banks and arrive at Herring Island.

Take in a twilight cruise and see Melbourne come to life at night with the city lights and experience the casino Gas Jets as the "whoompf" their huge flames into the darkness

  • Travel along the majestic Maribyrnong River and learn about it's history and relationship with Melbourne.

If you are visiting during the annual celebration of the Melbourne Cup then this is a must cruise as the Flemington Racecourse is a destination point for one of their specific cruises.
