Fodor's Review

Departing from Echuca around sunset, this paddle steamer chugs downriver, fueled by redgum logs, taking passengers on one-, two-, or three-night cruises. The only wood-fired paddle steamer in the world offering 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. A one-night trip is A$300 per person with dinner and breakfast; two- and three-night cruises with all meals (A$595pp and A$875pp).
