Authentic Australian Murray River Cruises

Experience the ultimate luxury Murray River Cruise aboard the world’s only accommodated wood-fire paddlesteamer, the PS Emmylou. With a seamless blend of old-world charm and modern-day comforts, this authentic riverboat immerses you in a bygone era.

All our cruises are all-inclusive experiences, where the journey is just as important as the destination. Feel the warmth of the 1906 steam engine as the engineer stokes the boiler, chat with the skipper in the wheelhouse, or simply relax and admire the changing reflections in the water. Whether you’re interested in the river, the region’s pioneering history, or just want to unwind, PS Emmylou Murray river cruises offer something for everyone.

With a maximum of 16 guests and four crew, the only crowds you’ll encounter are the local wildlife, such as Australian White Ibis, Kingfishers, and kangaroos. Keep your eyes peeled for long-necked turtles sunning themselves on a fallen River Red Gum.

The PS Emmylou may be an old-timer cruiser powered by a 117-year-old steam engine, but she doesn’t sacrifice modern conveniences. Each luxury cabin features a private ensuite, individual air-conditioning, WIFI, and opens directly onto the large timber decks. 

So why not book your Murray River Cruise on the PS Emmylou today and experience a luxurious journey back in time?
