As close to authentic as you could get in today's world. I believe we got lucky and this Steamer is better and more rustic than the Canberra or Emmylou. Take the cruise and chill out for an hour or so. It 's great. Loved the...More

Great paddle steamer experience with the young kids. She goes for an hour perfect for the young ones under 10 with room to move around. Definitely worth the experience.

As a part of the history of Echuca its well worth seeing the paddle steamers. There is something to suit everyone whether its a 1 hour cruise on the Murray or having lunch on the Emmylou or afternoon tea.

We were in town while visiting friends and decided to take a paddle steamer ride. The P/S Pevensey was our choice. The cost was reasonable and the crew very informative during the tour. The tour is for one hour, slow and relaxing.

Echuca boasts a wonderful fleet of paddleboats. Most magnificent is the Emmylou. Although recently built, by comparison, it has a majestic and authentic design and a huge steam engine fed by local redgum. The Pevensey is famous from the All The Rivers Run TV series...More

The Pevensey is an authentic, wood fired, steam driven paddle steamer-with it’s original engine. The ride is only an hour though. Still a lovely experience. Port of Echuca is where the paddle boats depart from-it is in... More

Absolutely, the boat is an old working boat and kids get to explore the old living quarters and galley. They also get an activities pack and get to have a steer with the skipper and earn their 'First Mate Certificate'
