Tour highlights:
  • Echuca Wharf
    By the 1870s Echuca had risen to prominence as Australia's largest inland port. Being the point of shortest distance between the Murray River and the major city of Melbourne, Echuca was both a key river port and railway junction. Steam-driven paddleboats would arrive at the 400-metre long redgum Echuca Wharf, unloading it to be transported by rail to Melbourne. Wool, wheat, other grains, livestock and timber were the most common cargoes. The wharf has been listed as a Heritage Place on the Australian National Heritage List.

Murray River Paddlesteamers operate from the Port of Echuca located just 2.5 hours drive from Melbourne's CBD. The company operate the iconic PS Emmylou, PS Canberra and Pride of the Murray.

The spectacular paddlesteamer, the PS Emmylou, the world’s only wood-fired cruising paddlesteamer was recently relaunched following a specially designed luxury upgrade and fit out.

Taking passengers for the first time through some of the most pristine and intact ecological forests, to places of geographic, historic and Aboriginal cultural significance, PS Emmylou will travel along the Murray River to world heritage wetlands, and the world’s largest red gum forest.

With only nine cabins this boutique steam-powered cruise, is able to moor alongside outstanding river wineries, drop in to local producers, pause to explore heritage sites such as the 1860s Perricoota Station, and access ancient Murray River tributaries on the MV Kingfisher with an environmental specialist.

Onboard dining, prepared by the Chef, features local food and wine from across the region. Riverside campfires with stunning night skies to complete this unique experience.
