Snaking through the heart of the city, Melburnians like to gently rib one another over which side of the Yarra River they live on. The sepia-coloured Yarra is one of the stars of Acacia’s Melbourne laneways and waterways tour. But before you take to water, first we celebrate the city’s unique laneway culture.

Teeming with incredible hole-in-the-wall cafes manned by passionate baristas, the street-art daubed thoroughfares also host boutique galleries and designer stores showcasing local creations. Climb to a rooftop bar for a close-up look at the city’s glittering towers.

Once you step on board your luxury private cruise, sit back and tuck into a charcuterie and cheese board with a glass of Australian sparkling wine as you glide along the Yarra, marvelling at that magnificent skyline from a very different angle, with Federation Square, the MCG, and the Royal Botanic Gardens as your dramatic backdrop.
