What you can expect
Head north of Melbourne to reach the winding path of the Murray River, the longest in Australia. Board the elegant Emmylou paddlesteamer, cruise along banks filled with swaying red gum trees, and enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by an expert chef on this scenic river ride.
Your skipper for the day will greet you as you board the open decks of the PS Emmylou. Admire this classic paddlesteamer, powered by seasoned logs of local red gum trees. Watch as clouds of steam bellow out of its pipe as you drift away from the dock and head down river.
Relax while your onboard chef puts the finishing touches on lunch and order up a glass of wine to pair with your delectable 2-course meal. While you eat, take time to snap photos of the passing landscape, listen to intriguing commentary about the area's history, and consider taking a break from your food to take a peek inside the wheelhouse. Finish your meal as you come about and steam back to the dock, parting ways with your Skipper after you pull back into dock in Echuca.
