Gondolas on the Swan

  • Elizabeth Quay

A gondola ride offers a unique way to explore the Swan River or celebrate a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, wedding, Valentines Day and even a marriage proposal.

The sunset cruise on the Swan River is a once in a lifetime experience, sipping champagne on the plush red velvet upholstery of a Venetian gondola. The gondolier gently steers you past Perth city lights with traditional Italian music gently playing in the background. You are also welcome to bring your own music to play during the cruise. 

The one hour cruises normally heads across to South Perth and glides along the South Perth foreshore with spectacular city views then returning to Elizabeth Quay.

Gondolas on the Swan offers two options:

15 & 30 Minute Shared Cruises

This is an affordable way to experience a gondola ride and see Elizabeth Quay from a different perspective. Ideal for families. Pre-book your session on line or by phone. Minimum 2 people, maximum 8.

One Hour Sunset Cruises 

This option offers the ultimate romantic experience with your own exclusive Venetian Gondola. Options include bottle of bubbly or champagne, red rose, Swiss chocolates and cheese platter.
