This popular Three Night Discovery cruise will connect you to Australian history, geography, culture and cuisine along Australia's longest and most famous river. Enjoy our signature riverside grand dining, campfires, day and night cruising to see the river from a different perspective and travel on a half day excursion to world heritage wetlands for a small boat Eco cruise with lunch at a riverside winery.

PS Emmylou will take you back to the romantic days of Australia's Paddlesteamers. The side-wheel paddlesteamers are distinctly Australian having first plyed the Murray river in 1853 and is now the world’s only wood-fired cruising paddlesteamer offering one to four night authentic cruises in comfort and style.

Built in the style of the 19th Century paddlesteamers, PS Emmylou recently underwent a specially designed luxury upgrade and fit-out and now features nine cabins accommodating just 18 guests. The refitted contemporary cabins and ensuites include fine linens topped with silky duvets. Cruising aboard a traditional wood fired paddlesteamer engages your senses from the moment you board: smell the warm oil of the 1906 engine, feel the heat as the engineer stokes the boiler with Redgum logs, climb up to the wheelhouse to chat to the Skipper.
