About
Step aboard the PS Emmylou for a seven-night cruise where nature, yesteryear, relaxation and Australian TV history seamlessly blend together into an unforgettable experience. This cruise, that pays homage to its namesake novel, starring Emmylou as PS Providence, will see you spending your days listening to Kookaburras’ song and watching flocks of galahs fly overhead. Evenings pass watching the sunset through towering Red Gums before the moon rises over the Mighty Murray. You can also partake in movie nights where the 1984 movie adaptation is played, allowing our guests to reminisce about way back when. Onshore tours will take you to popular and lesser-known places of historical, geographical and cultural significance, where you will learn about the rich history of this beautiful river area.

      Relaxing on the PS Emmylou
      We had an amazing 3 nights on the Emmylou Paddlesteamer cruising around the Murray River. It was a unique and relaxing adventure, a lot of fun with dinner and singing under the stars and a very rambunctious trivial game on our last night. The crew were friendly, professional and lovely, a lot of fun to spend time with as were the other passengers. The only downside was our trip to the winery, the staff there were overworked with a few functions and we felt like an add on. A shame we couldn’t experience Morrison Winery instead. We had a fabulous time and recommend this or other Murray River cruises in a heartbeat. Robyn & Bob Mulas

      A Wonderful adventure
      I had wanted to do this trip for many years and it lived up to expectations. The crew were friendly and could not do enough for you. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed the intimacy of the boat with its only 16 passengers. The shore excursions were interesting and the barbeques and campfires ashore so memorable.

      A bit different
      We spent NYE on board the boat and had a cabin. It was quite good but not as romantic or upmarket as expected. The 5 course meal was a bit of a take - spring rolls and cheeses dont really count IMO! We got quite wet when wake hit the boat from mad boaters and jet skiiers. Unplesant. It was also very tight for room to eat. Too squuezy! The room was adequate but not flash. All up it was a differnt experince but probably not worth the $960. Wait staff were excellent.

      New Year’s Eve cruise on the River at Echuca
      My person experience was It was very disappointing and underwhelming. When I booked the PS Emmylou NYE cruise it gives you the impression you will see fireworks unless it is a total fireban. We saw none. There was zero atmosphere on the boat, there was no music or any decorations. Even though a warm day once the sun left it was freezing and it didn’t help that a person on a jet ski came past and water poured all over my husband and drenched him. No staff seemed to realise we were affected as well as the other 3 tables in the direct firing line so didn’t check on us. There was no commentary during the 5 hours expect to introduce staff and to let us know it was getting towards midnight and to thank us for sailing with them. I supposed we were spoilt by the wonderful lady with the huge personality on the PS Canberra.

      Time to unwind on the Murray
      A great experience! An opportunity to unwind listening to the rhythmic sound of the engine which was lovingly looked after on our trip by Anthony who also recited poetry on our last night. We all boarded as strangers but many left as friends, just 12 guests. 4 crew onboard with us for the duration but other team members joined us for excursions or even entertaining us with guitar and songs around the camp fire. Would recommend and would not hesitate to board again.

      Exceptional adventure
      If you love being spoilt this is the trip to go on. The entire experience was wonderful. I'd recommend it to anyone and I'll probably do it again myself. The food was fabulous and those with big appetites won't be disappointed. The service was at the same level. This history we learnt along the way was amazing. Then there's the Paddle steamers. What amazing machines. The best trip ever!

      A different trip, great mixture of nature, history and good company underpinned by excellent service.
      I enjoyed the trip immensely due to the amalgam above. The accommodation was fine, food and service of a high standard and interesting itinerary. Moreover I had a fabulous time taking photos and have plenty of pleasing images. Hats off to a passionate crew, well done !

      Perfect 3 night paddlesteamer cruise on PS Marylou
      I have recently disembarked from an incredibly relaxing 3 nights on the Marylou, such a delightful little paddlesteamer, she and her efficient, friendly, very knowledgable and helpful staff took us down river, up river and everywhere in between including fabulous onshore excursions. What a great and memorable few days! Comfy cabins, delicious food and lots of it! not to mention the inspiring and restful Murray River scenes we floated past and mostly a fun crowd of like minded guests to share this wonderful experience with. Thank you all at Murray River Paddlesteamers🤗

    What a fabulous 7 days! I loved every minute of it, the river is so peaceful and the voyage so smooth. Lots to see and do both on board and at each stopping place. The crew are excellent, they work together well, have great senses of humour and just can't do enough for you. The food is plentiful - understatement! - and delicious The cabins are compact but hold everything you need, I can't recommend this trip too highly, it was great.

    Everyone should do this experience. Food great, location and scenery magical, all the staff were special. Cabins tiny, but, well appointed. An amazing experience, very lucky to have been able to do this experience.

    This was a magical experience - from first to last! Jo. Greg, Scott and Warren were all amazing, as were Ross and Rohan. The teamwork was wonderful.
    Jo's warmth and caring *and remembering everyone's quirks was perhaps the most exceptional but it was a close race with Greg's amazing, classy and tasty chef's output for all tastes, Scott's brilliant engineering that made the the engine (almost) invisible and inaudible (and his great lecture) and Warren's faultless 'driving' hour after hour (and great singing and commentary)
    - and Ross and Rohan were pretty cool, too with interesting commentary and several safe and comfortable bus trips to our excursions. Guest comfort, safety and enjoyments was everyone's top priority.
    It wasn't just the wonderful crew, the grand old-and-newish Emmylou, the excellent excursions, and that magical river but the combination of all of these things - especially the crew. we have been on half a dozen river cruises in Europe, but never felt so 'looked-after or cared-for. Such 'hospitality' in the original and traditional sense of the term meant the experience exceptional. The excursions were all terrific especially the Restdown Heritage trail (which included wetlands and some amazing insights into regenerative farming (BRILLIANT), the trip to the wonderful flying boat museum at Lake Boga and an Eco-cruise on the Barmah wetlands. Other great activities included talks on Torumbarry Weir, on Pericoota Station, on the wonderful workings of paddlesteamers and some tastings and talk from the young free range entrepreneurs at Pacdon Park. The longer walking tours offered lovely opportunities for less mobile to go at their own pace - or explore in different ways. We all (only 13 guests - a kindly, lively and very well travelled group) also enjoyed the wonderful second-last night barbecue and talking etc around an amazing fire pit. And then there was the actual cruising on the mighty Murray river with the great river red gums coming down to the water's edge sometimes. It was magical!

    The PS Emmylou is a charming way of relaxing on the Murray. The food was great, the tours were interesting and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. This quirky vessel is not very large and the rooms are very small but they contain everything you need. Book the suite if you can.

    My wife and I took the seven day tour. The on board experience was fantastic. The scenery, food, crew and fellow travellers, made this one of our best holidays ever. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
