Great Murray River Experience
The staff are wonderful and knowledgeable, the food is amazing, the cabins are excellent, especially the ensuite facilities and the off-boat experiences memorable, particularly the Barmah Forest cruise. The Murray is a wonderful destination if you want to make contact with nature.

I had a fabulous time whilst on board the Emmylou. I did a 2 night Murray River cruise. The crew on board were very accommodating, & the food delicious. I would highly recommend this cruise to all my family & friends. Cheryl C
