PS Ruby

Step back in time as you are welcomed on-board the authentic 1907 heritage paddle steamer PS Ruby

Built in Morgan, S.A. in 1907, it was the fourth paddlesteamer to be called Ruby, she transported passengers and cargo between Echuca, Mildura, Wentworth and Goolwa. After a long and busy life Ruby slowly fell into disrepair, ending her days as a houseboat at Mildura.

It was purchased by the Rotary Club of Wentworth in 1968 and was dry docked in Fotherby Park, as a reminder of the riverboat era. In 1995 the Rotary Club realised the need for major restoration on the hull so handed ownership to the Wentworth Community, in the trusteeship of the Wentworth Shire Council.
