The Pride of the Murray provides the ideal setting in which you can enjoy a trip back in time to the famous Riverboat trade era of the late 1800s. This proud Riverboat is herself historic - she has always called Echuca home since beginning life as a barge in 1924, bringing redgum logs down from the Barmah Forest. One-hour cruises.

We took a most enjoyable lunch cruise along the Murray. It was great to experience the ambiance of a time gone by. The cruise was leisurely and the lunch was fine. The glass of wine was very small to the point of being stingy. Service was reasonable. A worthwhile trip but, having done it, not one we would need to... More

A very relaxing 60 minutes. Recommend you try to get on early and grab a seat at the side of the boat for better views. Have a... More

We went on the one hour cruise on the Emmylou and it reminded me of days at sea in the Navy. We enjoyed watching the birdlife that live around the river. It was a very relaxing and informative one hour.

My girlfriends and I booked a 4 course dinner on the PS Emmylou at the end of March weekend, whilst visiting Moamo/Echuca for a girls weekend trip away. Lara was the most friendliest and hospital waitress and so obliging. The meals were delicious and the whole atmosphere on the 3 hour river cruise was amazing. We also scored a bonus,... More

Comfortable and informative trip down the Murray River. Narrow steps on the boat can be difficult to use, but they are narrow on all small water vessels. Enough seating for everyone. We sat outside on the deck and ordered some afternoon tea of scones, jam and cream..
