Full description
Let PS Emmylou treat you to an unforgettable river cruise along the Murray River for an authentic Australian adventure. Experience the magic and majesty of the spectacular scenery of the Murray River and follow the wake of early history when Echuca was Australia’s largest inland port.

Departing Echuca downriver, enjoy a welcome afternoon tea with freshly made Australian scones, jam, cream, tea, and coffee as you begin to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the river. Hear all about the rich history of the river and PS Emmylou. As the sun starts to set over the river, it is time for an evening cocktail before your chef-prepared welcome dinner. Listen to the river birds evening chorus, watch for kangaroos, wombats, egrets, and many other species of birds as the stars begin to appear. The boat will moor at Layfield Lane, where you are welcome to join with your fellow passengers around the roaring campfire to watch the stars appear in the stunning night sky before retiring for the evening.

The next day, wake to an early morning walk along the riverbank, before enjoying breakfast. Depart on a half-day excursion travelling 30 minutes to the small town of Barmah. Here you depart on your guided eco-cruise, where you can get up-close to Australian nature and wildlife as you glide through the World-Heritage listed Barmah Wetlands aboard the MV Kingfisher. Enjoy a traditional Australian picnic lunch before you continue to Pacdon Park, makers of fine UK small goods where you can sample their fine assortment of produce. Visit the region’s largest winery, St Anne’s, where you will enjoy a short winery tour provided by the owners and then taste their fabulous table and fortified wines. You will also have the opportunity to sample their delicious Echuca Cheeses and Chocolates, all made from local produce. It is then time to re-join PS Emmylou, relax in the afternoon sun, and then spend the night mooring at Horseshoe Lagoon. The next day you will wake early and have breakfast before you cruise back to Echuca.
