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

The PS Emmylou is the only wood-fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular daily & 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 the exception of one double bed cabin (view deck plan).

All meals are prepared fresh in the galley by your on-board chef. While the Emmy 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, or to purchase the perfect gift.

The PS Canberra is an enjoyable way to cruise the mighty Murray River, and capture the essence of yesteryear. Built 1912 and driven by a superb 1923 wood-fired Marshall compound steam engine.

The Pride of the Murray claims a proud title of the many boats originally built in Echuca. The Pride of the Murray spends her days providing pleasure and a unique heritage experience for Echuca's visitors, a far cry from her original purpose as a barge.

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

Cruise and enjoy the magnificent Murray River aboard the Murray River Paddlesteamers that heralded the start of Echuca's riverboat tourism.
