Melbourne Yarra River Cruise

This was a great way to see Melbourne from numerous different perspectives. Up the Yarra was very pretty and relaxing and down in Docklands it was interesting to see the working wharves. And the commentary was okay. The staff were friendly and polite onboard, but the boat itself could be made more comfortable.

Poor commentary

Sadly, the commentary was inaudible so never got to learn about the sights. The cruise ws not 2 hours and stopped for 25 mins mid way. Snacks would be good and heating and music on for 5 minutes. Play a clear audible commentary, not the skippers rambles
