HistoryThe TSS Earnslaw is a 1912 Edwardian vintage twin screw steamer plying the waters of Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand. She is one of the oldest tourist attractions in Central Otago, and the only remaining commercial passenger-carrying coal-fired steamship in the southern hemisphere. She was named after Mount Earnslaw, a 2889 metre peak at the head of Lake Wakatipu. At 48 metres long, she was the biggest boat on the lake. Transporting the Earnslaw was no easy task. When construction was finally completed she was dismantled and it took 6 months to rebuild. She then became a valuable vessel for the New Zealand Railways and was known as the "Lady of the Lake". In March 1990, she carried Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. Other royalty to travel on board have been the King and Queen of Belgium and the Prince of Thailand. She also made a brief cameo appearance in the movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) as an Amazon River boat.
