Melbourne city cruises are one of the best activities to enjoy the city and look at it from a whole new perspective. Most cruises boards from the the docks near Federation Square (across Flinders St Station) and run from Southbank to the nearby suburban areas.
Best to do on spring or summer mornings where the sun isn't too hot and weather isn't too "Melbourne," very fickle minded and known to have four seasons in one day. Tourist guides are very informative. All the information they provide makes you put together the pieces, get well acquainted with the city and appreciate its rich history.
Most cruises run for at least an hour depending the package you have chosen. You can either select one direction cruising, heading towards either River Gardens or the opposite which is heading towards Port and Docklands. If you have more spare time, you can choose both directions and see all the highlights Melbourne has to offer.
This activity is perfect of the whole family. The kids will never get bored and they will definitely enjoy cruising for only a few hours within the city.
