All aboard! Take a 1-hour cruise aboard Echuca’s unofficial maritime mascot, the PS Emmylou! Adults and kids alike will love this redgum-fired old-world paddlesteamer as it cruises down the spectacular scenery of the Murray River!

From the moment you board the paddle steamer you are drawn to its charm, from the heat of the restored 1906 steam engine, the hoot of the whistle, and the rhythm and swish of the paddle wheels as they power through the water. You can even have a turn of steering the boat! With a snack menu available as well as a fully licensed bar, everything you could possibly need to ensure an enjoyable two hours is provided. Purchase a glass of your favourite wine, beer or soft drink and sit back as you are treated to breathtaking scenery throughout your Murray River cruise.
