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.

Pride of Murray paddle steamer had inside heating but an observation point if you wanted to get great views. Good commentary. Highlight was having a steer of it.
