PS Ruby Wentworth

Step back in time as you are welcomed on board the authentic 1907 heritage paddle steamer PS Ruby, operating from the Murray Darling Junction. Feel a tinge of excitement and adventure as the steam chambers breathe life into the powerful paddles propelling the 205 ton riverboat.

Note the lovingly restored woodwork and polished brass fittings and be amazed by the 132 foot nine inch vessel that only dips two and a half feet into the water below. Imagine how the outback opened up through the Murray and Darling rivers. Fuel had to grow out of the surrounding bush to fire up the boiler.
