57 Murray Esplanade, Echuca, Victoria, 3564, Australia
Departing from Echuca around sunset, this paddle steamer chugs downriver, fueled by red gum logs, taking passengers on one-, two-, or three-night cruises. The only wood-fired paddle steamer in the world with regular overnight trips, it can accommodate 18 passengers in rooms with twin bunks. There's one cabin with a double bed; all have shared bathrooms. Sunrise over the river, as the boat churns past mist-cloaked gum trees and laughing kookaburras, is a truly memorable experience.
