What is there to do?

Paddlesteamers? On the Murray River? Of course! We often associate them America and the Deep South, but you can have a Deep South experience without leaving Australia!

Murray River Paddlesteamers will start your journey in the historic Port of Echuca precinct. They have a beautiful fleet of paddlesteamers just waiting to take you for a ride!

Only have half a day? Only have an evening? No problem! They offer a range of cruise types so you can pick the one that best suits your family. They even have overnight cruises!

The paddlesteamers you would be enjoying elements that are authentic steamers too. The P.S Emmylou is a completely restored 1906 steam engine. This particular boat offers 1 to 3 night cruises, as well as lunch or evening cruises!

The Pride of the Murray is great for those needing wheelchair access, and even gives the kids an opportunity to steer the boat! (They might even come away with a skippers certificate!) She offers short cruises as well as twilight dinner cruises.

The Paddlesteamer Canberra was built in 1912 and uses a fully resorted 1923 wood-fired steam engine, with a unique viewing area above the engine so you get great views of the woodlands pass you by. Keep an eye out for some cute wildlife! Great for those day cruisers to learn a bit of history in the area.
