been looking around this forum for a bit and though i would try out some of the artistic functions on my camera. it's a shame that the subject here has a modern engine not the old steam type. the boat that normally does this cruise is the real deal though

There are only 5 river boats left in the US that still operate with authentic steam engines powering the paddles. One of them is the Julia Belle Swain which is now based out of La Corsse, WI, but Peoria was her home port back in the 70's when I lived back there. Many other riverboats that still run have been converted over to diesel power.

How cool! Didn't realize you were down under. I also didn't realize that you had steam powered river boats there.

Having stayed in the Grampians in '93 on our way from the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide, we came fairly close to Mildura. I thought the Grampians were incredibly beautiful, and we saw more wildlife there than any of the other places we visited in Australia.
