    Saturday

    Head north of Melbourne by Vline Train to reach the winding path of the Murray River, the longest in Australia. Board the elegant Emmylou paddlesteamer, cruise along banks filled with swaying red gum trees, and enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner prepared by an expert chef on this scenic evening river ride.

    Your skipper for the evening will greet you as you board the open decks of the PS Emmylou. Admire this classic paddlesteamer, powered by seasoned logs of local red gum trees. Watch as clouds of steam bellow out of its pipe as you drift away from the dock and head down river.

    Grab a seat while your onboard chef puts the finishing touches on your dinner and order up a glass of wine to pair with your delectable 3-course meal. While you eat, take time to snap photos of the passing landscape, listen to intriguing commentary about the area's history, and consider taking a break from your food to take a peek inside the wheelhouse.

    After dinner enjoy a cracking fire on the river banks before retiring to your cosy cabin for the evening. In the morning wake to the sights and sounds of the river as the day begins. Your welcome to take a early morning bush walk before your fully cooked breakfast as we steam back to the Port of Echuca parting ways with your Skipper after we pull back into dock.
