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

Let PS Emmylou treat you to an unforgettable river cruise along the Murray River for a truly Australian adventure. Along the way, you will see a great variety of Australian wildlife, including kangaroos and many of the hundreds of bird species that inhabit the river. Highlights of an Emmylou one and two night cruise include riverside campfires and barbecues, a visit to a vineyard and wine tasting, world heritage wetlands and cultural experience day excursion, whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of the river aboard a steam fired Paddlesteamer.

PS Emmylou provides sun decks and loungers, Redgums Restaurant and Bar on the saloon deck and a relaxing private front lounge. The PS Emmylou is the only wood-fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular overnight cruising. Catering for just 18 guests in nine cabins, Emmylou exudes old-world charm whilst offering modern comforts. Emmylou is fueled by redgum logs and is driven by a completely restored 1906 steam engine built to the highest world classification standards.

PS Canberra and Pride of the Murray offer daily one hour cruises with historical commentary of Echuca.
