Regionally Inspired Dining

Inspired by Australia’s heartland, our menus take full advantage of our region’s diverse bounty of fresh, local ingredients to fashion authentic dishes.

Your Chef takes great care in ensuring all guests dietary requirements are catered for whilst our onboard staff will charm you with traditional Australian country hospitality and attentive service. 

A typical day cruising starts with an delightful range of continental buffet choices, including fresh fruit, cereals and pastries or full English breakfast. Your Chef can also cook your favourite omelette or combination to order. Tea, coffee and a range of juices are always included with breakfast.

Lunches range from riverside picnics following onshore tours to extensive buffets and multi course dining featuring a choice of mains, salads, pastas, cold meats and deserts.

Dinner is the highlight of the day with multi course 3 to 5 course dinners served with a choice of regionally inspired main meals always offered. On 3 and 4 night cruises you will experience our signature Riverside Grand Dining. Dining under the stars is a special experience as your chef and crew serve you a delicious gourmet Australian BBQ. After dinner relax at the riverside campfire with your fellow passengers toasting marshmallow.      

Choose to sit with fellow passengers or with your partner, the choice is yours on all PS Emmylou cruises.

A wide variety of drinks, including wine, beer, cocktails, aperitifs and soft drinks, are available from the bar. We are proud to support our fine local wineries including Victoria’s leading family-owned winery, Brown Brothers.
