Echuca Paddlesteamers

DISCOVER YESTERYEAR TODAY

We proudly operate two very old and very authentic, fully operational paddlesteamers – PS Pevensey and PS Alexander Arbuthnot. Both are genuine old steamers, having worked the waters and tributaries of the mighty Murray River many years ago. 

At 106 years old, our "Lady of the River", PS Pevensey still catches your eye with her long slender beauty.  Carrying up to 100 passengers is no problem for her - she holds the record for the most wool bales carried by any paddlesteamer.  Travel onboard everybody's favourite paddlesteamer, PS Pevensey as she is also known all over the world for her starring role as "Philadelphia" in the Australian television mini-series "All the Rivers Run", made in Echuca in 1982-1983.

PS Alexander Arbuthnot is the last paddlesteamer built for the riverboat trade.  Being the youngest vessel of our historic fleet, at the age of 94 years old, she is still powered by her original steam engine that dates back to 1880.
