The Emmylou experience - a magical step back in time!
The Emmylou is the only wood-fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular overnight cruising. Fuelled by redgum logs the paddlesteamer offers modern convenience and some old-world charm.
The P.S. Emmylou is a Murray River paddlesteamer, driven by a completely restored 1906 steam engine, and built to the highest world classification standards. She was built locally during 1980-82 in the style of the 19th century paddleboats, and is perfectly at home in the Port of Echuca, residing with the very few remaining paddlesteamers of the past. She is 30 metres long and 10 metres wide, steel hulled and timber decked.
Elegance and style are the order of the day when it comes to catering for your stay onboard the Paddlesteamer Emmylou.
Three carefully prepared meals a day whilst aboard, each of these a potpourri of taste, texture and colour. Top local wines, plus a range of alternatives from the fully stocked licensed bar (own expense). All this served to your table on the outer deck while you enjoy a glowing rose and gold sunset, listen to the river birds' evening chorus, then linger over dessert and coffee to watch the stars appear. All meals: dinners, lunches and fully cooked breakfasts are included and prepared fresh by your on-board chef. Guests are comfortably accommodated in twin share cabins, featuring traditional riverboat style bunks with the exception of one double bed cabin.
Echuca, just two and a half hours from Melbourne and at the crossroads of routes between Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide, is home to the P.S. Emmylou.
Activities for guests enjoying the extended cruises are varied and can include fishing, swimming, bushwalking or simply relaxing under the stars by a campfi re on the banks of the mighty Murray River.
