On this all-inclusive 2 night package you will enjoy a truly magnificent Australian experience cruising along the Murray River from Echuca and 36 holes of golf over two championship courses. Relax with three gourmet meals a day cruising on a traditional paddle steamer immersed in old world charm
Let Paddlesteamer Emmylou treat you to an unforgettable river cruise along the Murray River for a truly Australian experience whilst also enjoying 36 challenging holes of golf at Rich River Golf Club Resort.
Rich River offers two distinct Championship golf courses, immaculately groomed and playable all year round. The East and West Course both stretches to 6,227 metres, playing to a par of 72. It has a tight layout with tree-lined fairways and elevated greens. The East Course links style with water coming into play on several holes.
Stepping back on board, driven by a completely restored 1906 steam engine, experience the simple joy of being on board a traditional paddle steamer. It's the senses that engage you the moment you board- smell the warm oil of the engine, feel the heat as the engineer stokes the boiler with red gum logs, climb up to the wheelhouse to chat to the skipper, even learn to steer the boat or just sit and gaze at the changing reflections in the water and let the lilting rhythm and swish of the paddle wheels, the nostalgic hooting of the whistle, and the distant croaking of frogs conjure up the leisurely pace of bygone days.
All meals are served to your table at red gums while you enjoy the glowing rose and gold sunset and listen to the river birds' evening chorus. Don't forget to linger over dessert and coffee, then enjoy a campfire on the banks of the Murray River.
