  • We took an hour long trip on the paddle steamer, Alexander Arbuthnot on the Murray river. What a wonderful experience, very relaxing way to see the river. The steam engine and the gears powering the paddle wheels openly choofed away in the centre of the boat.
  • My children and I did the Night Tour and absolutely loved it! Joel or Bluey, our guide, is a gifted and engaging story teller and had us enraptured for an hour and a half. We really loved Stretch the Wharf cat too. The boat ride on the Murray aboard the Pevensey is fantastic. Lots of great living history and fun to be found here and in Echuca.
  • Really nice enjoyed the day
  • Gorgeous place! We were only there for an afternoon but are keen to get back there and take our time exploring the history of the place.
  • Such a great part of Victoria. Must visit. Plenty of history. Putt down the Murray in a real steam boat. Kiddies will love it and the grown ups too.
