Revisit the romance of Australia's paddlesteamers
PS Emmylou, the world’s only wood-fired cruising paddlesteamer, will take you back to the romantic days of Australia's paddlesteamers.
The side-wheel paddlesteamers are distinctly Australian having first plied the Murray river in 1853, establishing a thriving industry which survived until rail and roads began to service the region near the turn of the century.
The Murray River, which includes the Darling and Murrumbidgee rivers, is one of the longest river systems in the world with more than 2500 kilometres of meandering waters.
Built in the style of the 19th Century paddlesteamers, PS Emmylou underwent a specially designed luxury upgrade and fit-out. The refitted contemporary cabins and ensuites include fine linens topped with silky duvets. The boats’ premier cabin, the Emmylou Suite, is located on the front Upper Deck, with French Doors opening to a deck and 180 degree views of the river.
With only 9 cabins and a maximum of 18 guests, PS Emmylou explores places of geographic, historic and Aboriginal cultural significance. Moor alongside outstanding river wineries, drop into local producers and access ancient world-heritage Murray River tributaries with an environmental specialist.
Onboard dining, prepared by the Emmylou’s Chef, features local produce and wine from across the Heathcote and Perricoota wine regions. Riverside campfires are offered in the evenings, with stunning night skies to complete this unique experience.
Join Murray River Paddlesteamers and experience a warm tradition of country hospitality on Australia’s greatest waterway aboard this iconic and authentic paddlesteamer.
