Further afield, around Metung/Paynesville there are narrow creeks and private berths where one could spend a considerable time aboard without anyone being overtly worried.. but a capital city? Nope. Doesn't happen.

The nearest alternative would be a boat-sized apartment at Yarra's Edge with the boat parked in the marina down below - for ~$10k/year plus costs..

Melbourne is undoubtedly tougher tha Sydney. In Sydney it can within reason be done.
