A Guide to Echuca, Victoria

Located approximately 220 km north of Melbourne, the town of Echuca is a popular tourist destination due to its rich history, excellent weather and location along the Murray River. Its name comes from the Aboriginal language and means 'Meeting of the Waters'. Clearly an important spot to the native population, Echuca rose to prominence in the 1800s as one of the most important inland ports of Australia.

Visitor Information

Today, Echuca welcomes visitors from around the world. The town can be reached from Melbourne via car or by the V/Line train which runs a service from Melbourne to Echuca's railway station via Bendigo. The region enjoys a mild climate throughout the year, making it suitable for visiting year round. Modern train and road transportation reduced Echuca's significance as a port town in the 1900s and today tourism is the area's major draw. A jumping-off point for a wide range of outdoor recreational activities, a historic city centre and large collection or old paddle steamers keep the town busy throughout the year.

Sights, Activities and Attractions

Historic Port of Echuca

The informal entrance to Echuca's historic port can be found at the corner of Watson and Leslie Street. From here, visitors can explore the old port on foot. The area retains much of the port's original construction from the mid-1800s including the original wooden wharf, shipyard, paddle boats and hotels. Informational signs are posted throughout the area and explain the port's significance to Australian history.

Paddle Steamers

Echuca is famous for its paddle steamers and its port is home to the world's largest collection of them. Companies offer a range of 1-hour and dinner cruises along the river departing several times a day. Visitors can transport themselves back to Echuca's heyday in the mid-to-late 1800s by stepping onto one of these historic boats. The views along the Murray River are as equally splendid as the boats themselves and it's a serene way to enjoy the magical scenery of this part of Victoria.

Billabong Ranch

Another throwback to the 1800s, Billabong Ranch offers horseback and carriage riding, along with an extensive fun park for the whole family. Adults and older children can explore the ranch's historic trails on horseback, while smaller children can partake in pony rides. In addition, the ranch also contains a small lake complete with pedal boats as well as a fun park with miniature golf and an animal nursery.

Wine Tours

The agricultural region surrounding Echuca is a burgeoning wine-growing area. Several tour companies operate in Echuca and offer everything from short half-day wine tours, to full day luxury packages that come complete with a gourmet meal and spa treatment. These tours can accommodate everyone from couples to larger groups and you can request custom wine tours for special occasions.

Hare Street

Hare Street stands at the centre of historic Echuca. Amongst some of the town's more modern shops and restaurants, visitors will encounter a few of Echuca's original and heritage listed buildings include a post office, churches, former banks and hotels. These historic buildings have all been lovingly maintained throughout the years and still feature many of their original fine details.

Rich River Golf Club Resort

Located just outside Echuca, the Rich River Golf Club Resort is one of the premier golfing destinations in the region and features two separate courses suitable to players of all levels. Set within the beautiful Australian countryside, the resort stands as a green oasis filled with sloping banks, sand traps, native plant life and a water feature. The resort offers stay and play packages, a restaurant, pro shop and golfing lessons.
