Paddle Steamer “Emmy Lou” – Echuca, Victoria, Australia


Just spent relaxing, rewarding  long weekend at Echuca. One of the highlights was a trip on the Murray River on this authentic beautifully restored paddle steamer.

Can recommend it highly.

About Emmylou

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.

The Emmylou offers accommodated steaming with fine cuisine for those who are looking for that something extra. 1, 2 and 3 night cruises are available, along with lunch and evening cruises where you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing meal. For those who are just passionate about steam there are daily cruises where you can let go of your worries and watch the world drift slowly by. Have you thought about chartering the Emmy for that special event? The professional crew are ready to cater for your every need.
