P.S. Success

The P.S. Success was built in Moama in June 1877 by G.B. Air for Westwood & Air. Measuring over 82 feet long and 16 feet wide, the Success towed barges of sawn red gum, wool and other cargo along the Darling and Murray rivers, as well as running as a passenger boat from Swan Hill to Mildura during 1915-16.

The Success ended her working life in 1957 and was put up on the bank at Ned’s Corner Station, 80 km west of Mildura. In 1996 her owners, the Pollard Family, donated the vessel to the Riverboat Historical and Preservation Society of Mildura, with plans to restore the vessel to her former glory.

However, additional funds were required to proceed with hull renovations. Becoming increasingly difficult for the dedicated volunteers to handle, the group approached the Shire of Campaspe to take ownership of the Success to enable further restoration.  

The Port of Echuca has assembled a team of skilled shipwrights, responsible for several major paddlesteamer restoration projects, who will utilise local red gum and parts from the original steamer to restore the P.S. Success to full working order. Once operational, the Success will be added to the fleet of traditional paddlesteamers moored at Echuca Wharf.
