Description:

The majestic PS Emmylou is one of the most recognisable and iconic paddlesteamers along the Murray River, often featuring as the unofficial flagship of Echuca.

Named after the country singer Emmylou Harris, the PS Emmylou has been host to thousands of people, delighting even her namesake during the late 1980s. Alongside the PS Pevensey, the PS Emmylou starred in the TV series All the Rivers Run in which she was renamed the PS Providence. Powered by a beautifully restored 1906 Marshall and Sons steam engine, the Emmylou journeys along the Murray offering a wide range of cruises

With an on-board Redgums Restaurant and 9 comfortable cabins accommodating 18 guests PS Emmylou is the most versatile of all boats. She provides daily short cruises, lunch and dinner cruises together with scheduled overnight, 2 and three night cruises.

The PS Emmylou is the only wood fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular overnight cruising. Fuelled by redgum logs the Emmylou exudes old-world charm whilst offering modern luxury. The Emmylou accommodates weddings, corporate functions and private events.

I only had two small grandsons with me and felt it lacked something for children, but as I had only a selected time and day to do it, they seemed to be happy enough. Lovely sunny and relasing.

What a beautiful setting for a beautiful moment in our lives. The staff were amazing, and the boat was gorgeous. I have Coeliac Disease, and Kerry (chef) made sure I was well looked after. Complimentary champagne and loads of congratulations' made this a perfect night that we will never forget! Can't wait to return!
