Struggling to find the perfect venue for your corporate Christmas event in Melbourne? Scratching your head trying to come up with staff Christmas party ideas? If the venue you went with last year got booked out, or you just want to do something a little different with your team this year, why not reward your employees with an exciting Christmas party cruise down the picturesque Yarra River!


Melbourne River Cruises offers the perfect place to hold your Christmas festivities, allowing you and your employees to kick back and celebrate as you drift along Melbourne’s main waterway – a relaxing and enjoyable experience that you won’t soon forget! Select from our office Christmas party cruise options or hire a private vessel.


AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCEIf you’d like a unique venue for your staff Christmas party in Melbourne, you can’t go past hiring one of our boats! Our Christmas party cruise doesn’t just offer an unforgettable experience – it also includes delicious canapés and cocktail food, access to a standard bar, and a DJ, all of which can be enjoyed over the duration of the 3.5 hour cruise.


We also offer an ideal option for smaller offices. If you don’t have enough numbers for a private function but still want to have a Christmas party on a boat with your work colleagues and friends, you can hire a boat as a shared cruise. This allows smaller workplaces to celebrate without having to pay for exclusive use of a large location.

The onboard bar also offers a selection of red, white and sparkling wines, a variety of beers, and plenty of non-alcoholic drinks to keep children and adults alike happy as you drift down the Yarra.
