Paddlesteamer "Coonawarra" on the Darling River

The "Coonawarra" is a privately owned paddle steamer which is about 100 years old. There were originally dozens of these vessels on the Murray and Darling Rivers until the advent of the railways, which rendered them redundant. There are about a dozen now lwft.
