Echuca Paddlesteamers

Experience the magic of the mighty Murray River with Echuca Paddlesteamers. 

In the last half of the 19th century, Echuca was a bustling town where paddlesteamers took people and goods from all along the Murray, Darling and Murrumbidgee Rivers. 

More than 100 paddlesteamers were built at Echuca, which was once Australia’s largest inland port. 

Now it’s home to the world’s largest collection of paddlesteamers. Echuca Paddlesteamers operates two of these authentic vessels, the PS Pevensey and PS Alexander Arbuthnot, which ferry passengers along the Murray on daily cruises departing from Echuca Wharf. 

Although their major commodity has changed from wool to people, our paddlesteamers still operate much the same as they did during the riverboat trade era of the late 1800s.
