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.

The staff were courteous and helpful. When I asked for the free scone with jam and cream, the guy said that coffees had to be ordered first. I said that the voucher did not mention anything about buying coffee in order to get the scones....More

We decided on a two hour tour of the Murray. It was a very pleasant trip on a rather cold day. The scenery is interesting and the Emmylou old but part of history. Highly recommended.

Had a great trip on the Emmylou, great commentary, very relaxing. The weather was a bit drizzly but it didn't seem to matter. Would recommend it to all.

The two hour cruise on Emmylou was a fabulous chance to see the surroundings from the water. Long enough to relax and see the banksides of Echuca and Moama. Even during school holidays the paddle steamer wasn't too crowded and the captain kept us occupied...More
