When you've lived in a city a long time, you're often inclined to miss some of its attractions - the things that make your home town special to tourists. While I've been in Melbourne for more than a year, I am still a bit of a tourist, constantly discovering new places, new things to do.

We went down Southgate one October weekend to have a bite of lunch and look at a photographic exhibition. The sight of a river cruiser shuttling along the river sparked a "Why not?" moment so we bought some tickets and were soon off on a one-hour journey up the Yarra and back.

When we mentioned it to various long-time Melbourne residents, most said that was something they'd never tried. Well, it's worth it. Join us on our river cruise and then go try one for yourself next time you're in town!
