Re-live the magic and romance of the Riverboat Days on the prettiest Paddlesteamer on the Murray River - PS Emmylou. Driven by a completely restored 1906 steam engine, experience the simple joy of being on board a traditional paddlesteamer.It's the senses that engage you the moment you go aboard: you can smell the warm oil of the engine, feel the heat 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 and let the lilting rhythm and swish of the paddlewheels, the nostalgic hooting of the whistle, and the distant croaking of frogs conjure up the leisurely pace of bygone days..
