“Never a hurry on the Murray”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We booked an hour cruise along the Murray. It was a great day and a great way to spend an hour. There are areas outside and inside near the engine to sit. The commentary was informative. Must do when you are in Echuca.

“Relaxing and informative trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 via mobile

A trip on a paddle steamer is a must for the tourist in Echuca. We were there mid week, so plenty or room to move around. The commentary was informative, and the trip was peaceful and relaxing. Master 9 really enjoyed the whole experience of seeing the steam engine operating, and the wheel house. The certificate is a nice momento for him.

“Great Historic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

I loved that everyone was so friendly, and I loved that as we were going along they described about the Pevensey and all the other riverboats.

“Scenic River Cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Enjoyed the river cruise aboard the P.S Pevensey, the hour goes very quickly though. I paid extra during the school holidays for my children to be involved in an on-board cooking class which they enjoyed. They also enjoyed being able to visit the wheel house and get a certificate for doing so.

“Nostalgic Adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

When in Echuca we decided to have a trip down the Murray on a paddle steamer.

There are a few to choose from and we travelled on the PS Paveney.

Our trip was an hour return, and that was just enough to give us a taste of the river and time long past.

You see the stoking of the steamer, the river gums and a variety of steamers that travel up and down the river.
The whole place is full of history, and was an enjoyable hour spent travelling on the Murray.

Dont get too hung up on which Steamer you travel upon, they all seem pretty good.
