With a combined age of over 230 years our fleet, the PS Canberra, Pride of the Murray and PS Emmylou, have a proud history working along the rivers. These days, with each of the boats offering a unique tourism experience the future is as exciting as the past, and our crew can't wait to show you what it's all about!
With a huge range of experiences on offer, and operating every day of the year except Christmas Day, there is something for everyone at Murray River Paddlesteamers.
Throughout the year we offer daily short cruises, and morning & afternoon tea cruises, or if you're looking for something more, Wharf-To-Winery, lunch and dinner cruises.
During the warmer months (September - May) PS Emmylou departs on relaxing 1 and 2 night heritage cruises - there's no better way to soak up the atmosphere of river life! PS Emmylou also offers dockside accommodation, year round, with our 'Boatel' package - if you would like a night, or more, in Echuca's most unique and waterfront hotel.
PS Emmylou (b. 1980) is our fully licensed restaurant paddlesteamer, seating over 40 guests for morning tea, afternoon tea, lunch or dinner, and comfortably accommodating 18 guests overnight. Our chefs prepare all meals freshly onboard, and the menus are changed seasonally complimented with a fine selection of wines and beers. Why not indulge, take some time out, and enjoy some delicious food whilst watching the beautiful scenery slide past onboard Echuca's Finest Paddlesteamer, PS Emmylou.
PS Canberra (b. 1913) and Pride of the Murray (b. 1924) are the perfect way to see the old Port of Echuca from the river. Listen to the Captain as they recall the colourful history of the riverboat trade; whilst you cruise past the towering redgum wharves in the area.
If you'd like to make a day of it, you can join us for our famous Wharf - To - Winery package. Arrive at the award winning Morrison's Winery in style, by paddlesteamer of course, to enjoy an afternoon of decadent food and fine wine before enjoying a leisurely cruise back to the Port of Echuca.
For something a bit different, why not experience Riverlights: The Story of Echuca. Set off onboard Pride of the Murray for a 2-course dinner whilst cruising under darkness, before the story of Echuca and the paddlesteamers is revealed before your eyes. We won't say too much, it'll give the surprise away!
Of course, if you would like to experience any of this privately, or create a tailor-made package to suit your needs, all of our paddlesteamers are available for exclusive charter.
Our crew look forward to welcoming you onboard one of Echuca's favourite paddlesteamers!!
