Full description
Head north of Melbourne to reach the winding path of the Murray River, the longest in Australia. Board the elegant Emmylou paddle steamer and cruise along banks filled with swaying red gum trees. Enjoy a fabulous 2-hour cruise with a delicious lunch prepared by an expert chef. Your skipper for the day will greet you as you board the open decks of the PS Emmylou. Admire this classic paddle steamer, powered by seasoned logs of local trees. Watch clouds of steam bellow out of its pipe as you drift away from the dock and head downriver. Relax while your onboard chef puts the finishing touches on lunch and order up a glass of wine to pair with your delectable 3-course meal. While you eat, take time to snap photos of the passing landscape and listen to intriguing commentary about the area's history. Take a little break from your food to take a peek inside the wheelhouse. Finish your meal as you arrive back at the dock, parting ways with your skipper upon disembarking in Echuca.

We really enjoyed our trip on the Emmy Lou paddle steamer ... meal was delicious! The commentary about the role of paddle steamers in establishing Echuca & absolutely amazed how much locals & visitors use the Murray for all types of water sports .... it’s still the life blood of the town !! Definitely pop it on your bucket list !!
