Emmylou Experience

Enjoy a multi day cruise aboard an authentic paddlesteamer, the iconic PS Emmylou. From the moment you are welcomed onboard by our friendly crew to the moment you disembark you will have memories and friendships to last a lifetime.

Let PS Emmylou treat you to an unforgettable river cruise along the Murray River for a truly Australian adventure. Experience the magic and majesty of the spectacular scenery of Australia’s longest river and follow in the wake of early history when Echuca was Australia’s largest inland port. Along the way, you’ll see a great variety of Australian wildlife, including Kangaroos, Koalas and many of the hundreds of bird species that inhabit the river.

Step back in time and let Emmylou connect you to Australian history, geography, culture and cuisine. You will enjoy riverside campfires, BBQ’s, winery visits, world heritage wetlands small boat eco cruise and all whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of Australia’s most famous river, the Murray!

The PS Emmylou is the only wood-fired paddlesteamer in the world offering regular overnight cruising. Catering for just 18 guests in 9 cabins Emmylou exudes old-world charm whilst offering modern comforts. Emmylou is fuelled by local Redgum logs and is driven by a completely restored 1906 steam engine built to the highest world classification standards. She is now an Australian icon featuring on many Australian Tourism media promotions and is perfectly at home in the historical Port of Echuca, residing with the very few remaining paddlesteamers of the past.

New Heritage Cabins with Ensuites

We are excited to announce that PS Emmylou Cabins are being refitted ready for Spring 2018 cruising.

We invite you to relax in a warm, inviting atmosphere of mid 1800’s riverboat charm without sacrificing modern conveniences. From September 2018 Emmylou will feature new cabins with fine linens and plush new bedding which will ensure you are well rested to fully enjoy your time aboard with us.

Emmylou will now also feature her own Suite in the best location with sprawling views of the river. You will feel like “the King of the world” as you open your French doors and step out onto your veranda looking straight down the mighty Murray River. The Emmylou suite is the largest aboard with interior lounge seating and Sofa-bed which can accommodate a third guest. Guests enjoying Upper Deck Cabins will now be able to choose from double or twin cabins all with private ensuites, with doors opening to the outside upper deck affording neighbouring guests the unique opportunity to enjoy a social atmosphere, swapping stories and forming lasting friendships with fellow travellers. Our Main Deck Twin Bed Cabins are also being refurbished offering a shared private bathroom situated just outside the cabins. From our cosy Main Deck to the Emmylou Suite PS Emmylou now has accommodation for a variety of lifestyles and budgets and will feature free Wifi throughout the boat and cabins.
