Echuca – Upper Murray Region

The Upper Murray region town of Echuca offers a glimpse into it’s rich history as one of Australia’s busiest inland ports.

Echuca

Echuca has had a long and prosperous history with the Murray River on which it’s located. Situated about three hours north of Melbourne, the town sits on the Victorian side of the river system, while its counterpart of Moama lies on the NSW side. Echuca Moama are twin towns nestled on the Murray River, surrounded by iconic red gum forests and charming country towns. Cruise the river on a historic paddlesteamer, explore our two defined wine regions, tour our silo art trail, visit our award-winning attractions, get adventurous on our walking and cycling trails, and watch the sun go down beside a riverside campfire.

Because of its location, Echuca was once one of Australia’s busiest inland ports. Its paddle steamer history is on display at the only remaining section of the original Red Gum Wharf, with historic buildings, displays, and demonstrations available for locals and visitors alike to immerse themselves in.

It may not be as well-known as the Barossa or Adelaide Hills, but the Echuca region has a healthy wine industry, with more than 80 hectares of vines. Cafes and restaurants serving an array of fresh produce and gourmet products are also a must-try.

There is so much to do and see in this areas. Here are some other tours to explore.
