Long Description:
The PS Etona provided for the spiritual needs of the river communities, plying South Australian waters from 1899 to 1915 as a floating church. Based at Mannum it served towns and stations along the Murray as far as Renmark. It carried a minister who performed weddings, christenings and religious services, and also had an altar and organ on board.
Note the cross above the wheelhouse.
The Etona, now fully restored with her original steam engine can now be seen moored alongside the historic wharf at Echuca.
