Echuca, excellent place to visit. Always gravitate to the Port... always take a trip up the river, taste of local wine etc...like to help the local economy. Family live here, therefore visit yearly at least...but always enjoy all that Echuca has to offer...
Highly recommend this tour. The workers were so helpful and friendly. We did a guided tour with Jenny and she was fabulous. Kept us engaged and took us back in time. Honestly do the tour it was so cool we got to see an underground pub and learn about the steam engine. We also met a man who sung us the Murray River welcome song. He was great too. The tickets were very affordable and they even had kids dress ups and a quiz for the kids to keep them engaged too. Would come back. One of the best things I have done in echuca.
Fascinating place, I highly recommend visiting if you are interested in history. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Looking forward to visiting again.
Fantastic place to visit. We loved the cruise on the PS PEVENSEY and were pleased to find the tickets are not expensive. When the current (November 2018) renovations are finished on the port and jetty museum area, it will be even more enjoyable. Even the nearby shops are good for browsing.
A great day, All the tour guides were helpful, and full of knowledge. All staff members and Tour operators were always smiling and friendly. The area is full of history and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the area.
