This lovely old paddle steamer the PS Decoy was built in Glasgow and shipped to Australia in sections and assembled in Melbourne in 1878 to be utilized as a harbour tug, instead it was resold for use on inland rivers and in 1905 sailed, or should I say 'steamed' it's way to Perth to become an excursion steamer on the Swan River. In the 1930's it was used as a houseboat and now it's berthed at the Mends St. Jetty on the South side of the Swan River and used for all sorts of functions, it is billed as a 'unique wedding experience' venue, but also popular for birthday parties, bucks/hens nights etc. I have seen some wedding photos taken aboard this old classic, especially at night with the city as a backdrop and they are absabloominfabulous!! Almost the weekend... yay! It's been the most hectic week ever.....!
