Built in Newcastle in 1970, The Victoria Star (formerly the Lady McKell) is a three-time winner of Sydney’s Great Ferry Race and a veteran of 25 years’ service to millions of harbour passengers.

Built in Newcastle in 1970, Victoria Star was formerly the Lady McKell, a member of Sydney’s famous fleet of harbour ferries.  Winner of the Great Ferry Race on three occasions, Lady McKell is fondly remembered by the millions of passengers who travelled on her throughout her quarter century of service of Sydney Harbour.

Victoria Star has made the Yarra and the waters of Port Phillip the perfect setting for any significant gathering; whether it is a private dinner party, corporate event or lavish wedding.  She is a spectacular alternative to city boardrooms, crowded restaurants and ordinary function venues.  In fact any occasion is more memorable on board the Victoria Star.

Let our friendly attentive crew welcome you aboard to a world of style and luxury.  Enjoy contemporary Australian cuisine prepared on board by our talented chefs.  Relax in our spacious dining saloons, handsomely appointed in gleaming brass, rich timberwork and plush carpets.  Unwind to live music or dance to disco while discovering the splendour of passing vistas.  Sun-drenched or star-lit, there’s always a changing view.

Cruise the Yarra and the bay with seated meal areas for up to 120 guests and Finger Food Banquets for 300 guests.
