Named after the famous 1983 mini-series where PS Emmylou starred 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 three onshore tours taking you further along the river to Swan Hill visiting the Pioneer Settlement with includes a cruise along the river aboard PS Pyap. 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.
