You will love our now popular 6-night All the Rivers Run Cruise. Sailing from Echuca the itinerary pays homage to its namesake novel, visiting Perricoota Station, embarking on new onshore tours, and partaking in movie nights viewing the 1984 movie adaptation, starring Emmylou as PS Providence.

This cruise relives the notion of living on the river, allowing guests to experience both the Upper and lower river from Echuca, with days spent listening to Kookaburras bursting into song or watching a flock of galahs playing in the distance. Evenings spent viewing the sunset through towering Red Gums and watching the rising moon will be lasting memories of this special river cruise.

Guests will also enjoy four onshore tours taking you further along the river to Swan Hill visiting the fabulous Pioneer Settlement & WW2 Flying Boat Museum. A feature of this cruise is a narrated tour of Echuca, founded by Henry Hopwood where you will visit little-known historical sites learning about the rich history of this beautiful river port town, once Australia’s largest inland port with over 100 Paddlesteamers.
