Make your way to the central Docklands area, where you board the Lady Cutler Melbourne Showboat for your 4-hour blues cruise. Get comfortable on a chair, bench, or couch on one of two decks, and sit back to enjoy the beautiful city skyline pass by while cruising down the Yarra River.

But you won’t stay seated for long, because soon the lights go down and the music comes up: two live acts on the upper deck and a DJ on the lower deck infuse the evening with soulful blues music. Dance the night away during the 4-hour journey from the Docklands to Williamstown, Port Melbourne, and St. Kilda. And if you fancy a snack or a cocktail, food and drinks are available for purchase at the fully stocked onboard bar. It’s all you need to make this a perfect night out on the town—well, on the river.
