In some ways, the Yarra River defines Melbourne. People have been living at its mouth for tens of thousands of years, and there are plenty of Melburnians who define their identities by refusing to cross it.
The Yarra is the lifeblood of the city, meandering through the CBD from Port Melbourne up through Templestowe and beyond. And one of the most fun (and most, well, Melbourne) ways to enjoy the city is on a boat cruising down the Yarra.
That's where Melbourne Boat Hire comes in. The company has numerous options, from eco-friendly boats you can drive yourself up through romantic dinner cruises and even onboard private events like weddings. There are luxury options for couples and groups, as well as celebrations of all kinds.
There are boats available for Melbourne's notoriously fickle weather, too, so there's no need to stress if the weather looks inclement. It's the ideal way to celebrate any occasion, or to make an occasion out of any day.
