We had a few hours to spare on a sunny afternoon this trip so elected for the low impact 2 hour river cruise from Southbank to Williamstown and return.
The skipper provided an interesting commentary on the various heritage sites along with current development and influences of Melbourne. I must admit his wry humour had me engaged from the minute he came clean about being an ex Sydney sailor. Sure the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay is not Sydney Harbour although having enjoyed cruises on both I believe they are not comparable although equally enjoyable.
Having grown up in Melbourne and returned many times I cant believe we hadn't taken the time to experience this city by water.
Thoroughly recommend this affordable cruise for those wanting to explore another aspect of Melbourne.
