The Western Australian built Decoy is a genuine ocean-going Paddle Steamer powered by a 1905 Ransome, Sims, and Jefferies steam engine and is the last and only operating Paddle Steamer in Western Australia.
The Paddle Steamer Decoy hosts private and public cruises with live entertainment. The vessel also has a fully licensed bar & kitchen and offers panoramic views from our timber decks….it is just plain therapeutic!
For curiosities relating to our live music cruises, history tours ,and other entertainment, please refer to the website listed below and book yourself in for some steam therapy.
The Paddle Steamer Decoy will depart from Mends Street Jetty for a 1.5 hour trip accompanied by historic commentary of the Swan River (Perth Waters, South Perth, Mounts Bay, etc.) and of Perth’s popular Steamboats that have transported passengers across the Swan River to South Perth for 120 years.
Highlighting Perth’s depth of musical talent, our beautiful Swan River, and locally made beers and wines, the Decoy will depart from Mends Street Jetty in South Perth most Sundays for a 3 hour cruise on the Swan River accompanied by a live Jazz band.
