  • Interesting displays and lovely location on the Mighty Murray River make this a must visit attraction in Echuca  more »
  • Free access to the wharf and items on display. We took a walking tour which was most informative taking us under the wharf as well as on top.  more »

  • 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.
