Echuca Moama

Visit the famed Echuca Moama region and see abandoned steamboats and barges, tall red gum wharfs and beautiful old station homesteads. The riverboat days were glorious times for Echuca—until a great depression hit in the 1890s. As the railways were extended and road transport improved, the river trade declined and the old wharf, built in 1865, was defunct by the 1920s. Today the nostalgic whistle is still a familiar sound, as the wharf is home to the world’s largest fleet of operating riverboats, with cruises running throughout the day. Echuca’s other star attraction is the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre, where you can step back in time to 1860 and relive the authentic steam port, explore the revitalised wharf and watch the steam driven saw mill in operation. The pedestrian-only Murray Esplanade is lined with historic shops, cafes and hotels with plenty to engage visitors in this lively precinct.
