Imagine yourself feasting on a sumptuous seafood brunch while savoring the stunning view of the Yarra River. What completes this picture-perfect scene is a glass of bubbly, all yours when you get on board the stylish and spacious Melbourne Showboat. Watch the stunning sights of central Melbourne unfold as you sail by the city's busy docks and imposing skyline to the historical and quaint suburb of Williamstown, one of Victoria's first colonial settlements. You will be aboard an elegantly renovated vintage, double-decker boat which has comfortable indoor and outdoor viewing areas that afford unobstructed views of Melbourne's stunning panorama. The highlight of the cruise is a generous seafood buffet that features freshly prepared hors d'oeuvres, a diverse range of main courses, a decadent selection of sweets. Appetizers include sushi, oysters, and shrimps, while the main courses offer seafood pasta, grilled fish, roasted vegetables, and a variety of meats. There is a vast assortment of mini desserts for those with a sweet tooth, plus a salad bar, and fresh bread. You can ask for complimentary coffee or tea after the heavy meal, or buy a cocktail at the bar for something more potent.
The tour starts at Melbourne's docklands area in the late morning, and you will disembark at the same place after a three-hour cruise. You are entitled to a complimentary drink of sparkling wine, red or white, or beer when you board the boat. Soft drinks and juice are also available for those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages.
