Our popular 3 night Murray River Cruise invites you to Discover leisurely cruising over 160km’s of the winding upper Murray River. Cruising aboard a traditional wood-fired paddlesteamer on this 3 night Murray River Cruise engages your senses from the moment you board.
Feel the warmth of the 1906 steam engine as the engineer stokes the boiler with Redgum logs, climb up to the wheelhouse to chat to the Skipper, or just sit and gaze at the changing reflections in the water as PS Emmylou takes you back to a bygone era of romantic travel.
During the cruise step off the vessel to experience an onshore tour highlighting places of geographical, historical and cultural significance. Tour the historic Perricoota Station, first built in 1843 for an insight into the history of the area and St Anne’s Winery with an owner-led cellar and barrel tastings tour. You will also embark on a small boat eco-cruise through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Barmah Forest in search of local flora and birdlife in the world’s longest strand of Red River Gum.
Enjoy our signature riverside Grand Dining with evenings spent around a campfire and under a beautiful night sky, this journey is sure to be a highlight of your holiday.
