What You Can Expect

Melbourne New Year's Eve Party Cruise

Melbourne New Year's Eve Party Cruise

This year, spend an unforgettable New Year’s Eve on a Yarra River party cruise! During booking, select the cruise that best matches your age group — 18–40 years or 40 and up — and prepare to party. Dress in your best cocktail attire, and make your way to the designated departure point along the Yarra River, where you’ll hop aboard a riverboat decked out in festive finery.

Snack on savory cocktail finger foods including mini cakes, fruit platters and a toast on the night with your choice of beer, wine (red, white or sparkling), juice and soft drinks from the bar. As the boat makes its way through central Melbourne, enjoy the passing city lights and warm summer weather under the stars. When hunger strikes, pick and choose your favorites from a standup cocktail finger food dishes.

Make new friends and bust a move on the dance deck while a professional DJ spins energetic tunes. As midnight approaches and excitement builds, count down with your fellow revelers and enjoy a prime view of the central Melbourne fireworks show.

After ringing in the New Year, continue dancing and celebrating until 12:30am, when you’ll disembark back at the departure point.

The trip was amazing and very well worth the money. Had a brilliant time, the silver boat was great with the top viewing deck to see the New Year's fireworks and the food was fantastic. The only thing that could have been approved on was having more chairs for dinner and then putting them away after as the food was not really finger fork food, you had to sit down to eat it. Apart from that it was brilliant, thanks had a great night.
