But It's A Tram!

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.

On board you will find excellent facilities that include ...

  • Lounge seating
  • Stereo system with a wide selection of music
  • A fully licensed bar
  • Men's and Ladies amenities

The Tramboat river boat cruises travel in 2 different directions and the river boat cruises can be adapted to suit all needs, there is something for everybody.

  • Depending on the weather and the tides, the time of the day and the personal choices of the passengers, the trip can take in the new Docklands area, under the Westgate Bridge, over to the fascinating port of Williamstown and across Hobsons Bay onto Beacon Cove.
  • 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.

At this stage the Tramboat cruises operate for Groups and Functions and NOT for the general public, however this may change in the future

It Is Basically A Cross Between A Boat And An Old Melbourne Green Tram.
