Murray River Paddlesteamers offers three Paddlesteamers including the PS Emmylou, PS Canberra and Pride of the Murray.

PS Emmylou is the only wood-fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular daily and overnight cruising. Fuelled by redgum logs, the Emmylou exudes old-world charm whilst offering modern luxury.

Eighteen guests are comfortably accommodated in twin share cabins, featuring traditional riverboat style bunks with one double bed cabin.

All meals are prepared fresh in the galley by your on-board chef. While Emmylou treats you to an unforgettable river cruise, it is the majestic Murray River that provides a truly Australian adventure. The iconic PS Emmylou provides the opportunity to enjoy the natural, tranquil beauty of Australia's greatest river first hand. Enjoy river side campfires, bushwalking, swimming with world class food and wine.

The Pride of the Murray and the PS Canberra both offer daily one hour cruises and are both popular function boats with charters available.
