Yarra Empress

The Yarra Empress is one of the many boats on offer at Melbourne River Cruises, many of which would be a familiar sight upon the Yarra River, trundling past Southbank and past the Botanic Gardens.Combining sightseeing (even in your home city) with a truly unique setting, they’re as popular with private events like weddings and birthdays as they are with the many tourists who flock to Melbourne all year round.

All vessels by Melbourne River Cruises are fully enclosed, each with their own viewing deck, on board amenities, and an eager and helpful crew. The cruises themselves make their way past the iconic panoramic view that is Melbourne; from the twinkling skyline at night, to bustling Southbank, from the Botanic Gardens to the Docklands, and even further afield to Williamstown.

The Yarra Empress comfortably fits up to 145 guests standing in a cocktail setting, or 85 seated for a dinner event. Find Melbourne River Cruises at Federation Wharf below Federation Square, or at Southgate, Berth 5 Lower Promenade.
