  • Pretty well much just a touristy visitor centre with little nic naks and you can purchase paddlesteamer cruises, some things are a little overpriced, and you can also do the day or night tours the day...  more »
  • A traditional town in the heart of the State of Victoria. The old buildings of the 18th or even of the 19th century. Many shops, parks and recreation spots. We enjoyed the walk along the riverbank. We passed on the opposite bank on the territory of the State of NSW (the two States between the river and joins the bridge). A place worth to place one time for a visit.

  • One of Victoria's most iconic places and a must go to for weekend travelers. Rich heritage local with plenty of local arts and crafts to buy. Over waster there is fireworks display and paddle steamer show.
  • Interesting place to visit. Port of Echuca maintained the way it was before Federation. There are an increasing number of restored Paddle Steamers moored along the Murray River near the restored wharf. Echuca has a collection of the most working Paddle Steamer in the world. Highly recommended
  • Truly worth to come. Grab your whole family. Great heritage place
  • Very interesting and informative recreation of the Echuca port as it once was. There are various shops and industries making products for purchase, i.e. they're not just actors. The boat tour down the river was also very worthwhile.
  • Well kept history, close to town, shops, dinning. Boats rides highly recommended. Great in Winter, as it's quiter but still has plenty of life!
