Step back 150 years to the Age of Steam in the twin towns of Echuca and Moama. Just under a three-hour drive from Melbourne, these two historic towns are known for their fleet of still-operating riverboats and are the ideal spot for a family holiday.
Cruise down Australia’s longest river, the mighty Murray, on a paddle steamer or check out Echuca Wharf, once the country’s most important inland port. Get close to nature and camp or caravan among red gum trees, or choose the luxury option and enjoy river views from the comfort of your spa bath. You can cook up family barbecues matched with wines from local vineyards, or check out restaurant scenes focused on local produce. As the sun sets, sit outdoors on your private deck or balcony of your Moama or Echuca accommodation and spot wildlife in the trees or on the river.
