Yarra River, Melbourne

Highly recommended

Ever fancied yourself a captain? On A Boat can make that a reality, as you commandeer a boat down the middle of the Yarra River.

These boats can hold up to 9 people, you don’t need a license, and you can bring your own drinks & snacks on board. Just make sure the skipper stays sobre.

If you want to cruise in style, then book a deluxe boat with plush seating and built-in Bluetooth speakers.

It’s a great opportunity to get a different perspective of the city – for both tourists and locals.
