Discover yesteryear today and experience the magic of the mighty Murray River with Echuca Paddlesteamers.
Once the main transport of cargo and passengers during the 1800s, our fully restored paddlesteamers now offer daily one hour cruises and are a “must do” experience when visiting Australia’s paddlesteamer capital.
Explore the cabins, chat with the engineer or join the skipper for a steer in the wheelhouse!
Whether you are a history buff, steam buff, or simply looking for a fun day out, step back in time with us and discover what riverboat life was all about.
