Fitzroy Gardens & Yarra River Cruise

Take a 50-minute cruise on the beautiful Yarra River. In early times it was the major food source and meeting place for indigenous Australians, and used by early European settlers for agriculture. Today, it’s one of the country’s busiest ports. Sail past notable sites including the Royal Botanic Gardens founded in 1846 and the Melbourne and Olympic Park Sports Precinct. Take a narrated motor tour past the ornate Princess Theatre, Melbourne Park, Melbourne Cricket Ground, The Arts Centre. Pass by the Grand Prix site and St Patrick’s and St Paul’s Cathedrals. Within the grand Fitzroy Gardens, discover huge formal garden beds, walking paths, a superb collection of trees, a gorgeous conservatory and the cottage that was once the home of Captain James Cook. Finally, stop at the Shrine of Remembrance, a permanent and lasting memory to the ANZAC spirit. Its design ensures that a ray of sunlight falls on the Stone of Remembrance and illuminates the word LOVE at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the exact moment of the armistice ending WWI.
