The majestic PS Emmylou is one of the most recognisable and iconic paddlesteamers along the Murray River, often featuring as the unofficial flagship of Echuca.

Named after the country singer Emmylou Harris, the PS Emmylou has been host to thousands of people, delighting even her namesake during the late 1980s. Alongside the PS Pevensey, the PS Emmylou starred in the TV series All the Rivers Run in which she was renamed the PS Providence. Powered by a beautifully restored 1906 Marshall and Sons steam engine, the Emmylou journeys along the Murray offering a wide range of cruises

With an on-board Redgums Restaurant and 9 comfortable cabins accommodating 18 guests PS Emmylou is the most versatile of all boats. She provides daily short cruises, lunch and dinner cruises together with scheduled overnight, 2 and three night cruises.

The PS Emmylou is the only wood fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular overnight cruising. Fuelled by redgum logs the Emmylou exudes old-world charm whilst offering modern luxury. The Emmylou accommodates weddings, corporate functions and private events.

2 hours went very quickly , the food was enjoyable as well as the wine. Plenty of water if needed and service was great. The cruise was very relaxing with a reluctance disembark. Highly recomended.

Because we were not very hungry, we opted for the a la carte menu on board, settling for one course each plus a glass of wine or two each. Although there were few options on the menu, our... More

Very easy to book on line the night before 9:45 am hour-trip. Everything ran well to time. Comfortable chairs and table to enjoy fresh scones (baked on board), jam and cream. Staff most courteous.
