100 year old original steamer transporting you across Murray with big coal-fired engines and those 4 pistons powering up the big wheels pushing the massive machinery.... You just sit on the deck looking at this arrangement on one side and a serene calm Murray river...More

Pretty cool boat tour up and down the Echuca River. I enjoyed all the scenery on the river as well as the rooms in the boat to show how people lived on the boats. Very relaxing and nice ride. Friendly staff.

We were there with family for a photo shoot, so took in a few sights. Paddle Steamer PS Pevensey, the Billabong Horse and Carriage. The ice cream shop, a favourite for all. We ate at Roma's, which was fantastic.

Hi Rocket & Ally, we have the 3 oldest boats and all are authentic the only problem is our cruises are one hour each. Perhaps check the Echuca Paddlesteamers website and see the boats and the cruise schedule.

Absolutely, the boat is an old working boat and kids get to explore the old living quarters and galley. They also get an activities pack and get to have a steer with the skipper and earn their 'First Mate Certificate'
