Since food has been such a big part of the heritage of the Yarra River, we at Melbourne Boat Hire believe that the annual Melbourne Food and Wine Festival be held on this great river. All the lovers of food and wine come out and the river becomes a hot spot of regional taste and entertainment.

The great city of Melbourne was established in 1835. Back then it had its humble beginnings at the shore of the Yarra River. The Yarra River after all these years is still there in all its glory while Melbourne has grown into a giant. In present day, Greater Melbourne dominates and influences the lower reaches of the great Yarra River. Yarra River since the earliest of times was a source of food and sustenance for everyone who came to it.

We at Melbourne Boat Hire take pride in the fact that we have stayed true to our roots and at the same time we offer complete versatility in the experiences that we offer. In this case, we ensure that any year you put your trust in our hands we will deliver on our promise of making sure you go home with stories to tell your children.
At every Food and Wine Festival we see that, the fine city of Melbourne brings out its best and all the art, culture and music seems to literally burst out of each and every thing.

Melbourne Boat Hire has a fleet of four luxury boats. Bear in mind that this number will steadily grow. You have the option to charter the boat or have one of our experienced sailors captain the boat for you. In either case, you will enjoy a smooth ride as all our vessels are either hybrid or electric powered which ensures zero impact on the environment and a quiet ride on the waters of Melbourne.

Our boats have a capacity of ten to twelve passengers depending on the number of your guests and the choice of the boat. These factors also impact the price range in which the cruise will fall into. Regardless, all our packages include the local taste in wine and beers and full meal platters.

Limited slots are available for booking.
