RvTrips' review

12 Feb 2016

The historic Port of Echuca is located on the Murray River, just around the corner from the Visitor Information Centre. Most visitors to Echuca will end up spending some time at the Port to discover the history of paddle steamers and river trade that was such an important part of pioneering life along the Murray River.

The Port of Echuca has been beautifully restored and you will find lots to see and do:

  • Discovery Centre - learn about the history of paddlesteamers and stories of Australia's inland river system 
  • Evans Sawmill - a working exhibit shows how red gum timber was used for ship building, railway sleepers etc
  • Steam Display - see original working steam engines and pumps 
  • Echuca Wharf - a surviving part of the great red gum wharf. Walk above and below the heritage listed Echuca Wharf - great views of the Murray River
  • Cargo Shed Museum - shows the history of the Port with stories about life for the workers
  • Rail siding and vans - the Wharf was built in 1865 by the Victorian Railways - see an original Breakdown and Guard's van.
  • Take a ride along the Murray River on one of several paddlesteamers still in operation

Close by the Port of Echuca are a number of restaurants and bars to relax and enjoy a meal. There are also plenty of shops housed in old buildings with lots of interesting goodies to take home as souvenirs. We enjoyed our visit to the Port and spent several hours wandering around before taking a ride on PS Adelaide - the worlds oldest wooden-hulled paddlesteamer built in 1866.
