PS Alexander Arbuthnot

The Alexander Arbuthnot was one of the last steamers built on the Murray River during the riverboat trade. She was but at Koondrook in 1923 to tow barges carrying logs from the forest to the Arbuthnot Sawmills for some years until the 1940's when she was sold to charcoal producers in the Barmah Forest. During WW2 the PS Alexander Arbuthnot lay idle and in 1947 sank at her moorings. In1972 she was raised by a group of Shepparton volunteers. the Alexander Arbuthnot was bought by the City of Echuca in 1989 for restoration at the Port.
