Introducing Echuca

Echuca is the paddle-steamer capital of Victoria and a classic Murray River town, bursting with history, nostalgia and, of course, riverboats. The Aboriginal name translates as ‘meeting of the waters’, as it’s here that three great rivers meet – the Goulburn, Campaspe and the Murray. The highlight here is unquestionably the historic port area and the rivers themselves, and while it might feel a bit touristy, the town glows with an upbeat atmosphere and some fabulous restaurants and bars that will bring a smile to the face of riverside campers and travelling gastronomes alike.
