Melbourne Laneways & Waterways

Snaking through the heart of the city, the sepia-coloured Yarra River is one of the stars of Acacia’s Melbourne Laneways & Waterways tour. But before you take to water, first we celebrate the city’s unique laneway culture on a private Melbourne laneway tour.

Teeming with incredible hole-in-the-wall cafes manned by passionate baristas, the street-art daubed thoroughfares also host laneway 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.

Melbourne laneway tours are a great way to explore the city and coupled with a cruise on the Yarra River Acacia’s Laneways & Waterways tour is the perfect day out for visitors to Melbourne.
