Welcome to your home aboard Paddlesteamer Emmylou. We invite you to relax in a warm inviting atmosphere of mid 1800’s riverboat charm without sacrificing modern conveniences. Emmylou features contemporary deluxe cabins with
fine linens and plush new bedding which will ensure you are well rested to fully enjoy your time aboard with us.
The majestic PS Emmylou is one of the most recognisable and iconic Paddlesteamers in Australia, cruising the Murray River from Echuca, just 2.5 hours drive from Melbourne.
Named after the American country singer Emmylou Harris, PS Emmylou has been host to thousands of people, delighting even her namesake. 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, Emmylou is now the only wood fired Paddlesteamer in the world offering regular scheduled accommodated river cruises.
Emmylou was recently relaunched as Australia's most luxurious boutique inland river cruise after her cabins were refitted to a luxury standard with ensuites, including the new Emmylou Suite. Step back in time and let Emmylou connect you to Australian history, geography, culture and cuisine. Enjoy riverside campfires, BBQ's, winery visits, world heritage wetlands and cultural experience, all whilst enjoying the sights and sounds of Australia's most famous river.
Emmylou is also available for weddings, corporate functions and private events subject to availability. We suggest you contact us 12 months in advance of your preferred date.
