The popularity of the paddle steamer is evidenced by this shot of the PS Melbourne, taken on the Murray River at Mildura in northern Victoria. This, and a couple of others, offer regular cruises as well as on board accommodation for those who really like to indulge in life’s luxuries.
They are still a marvellous sight and crowds flock to the river when they know that one will be passing.

    An instant FAV for me. My Grandfather worked on a paddleboat on the Mississippi in the 1930s.

  • Very many thanks Don, both for the kind words and also for the fave. There are a few paddle steamers still working on the Murray, mostly in the tourism industry and the sound of their steam whistles brings people racing to the river from miles around! All the best, Peter
