Echuca: Step Back in Time

The name Echuca comes from the aboriginal word meaning "meeting of the waters," and this is extremely appropriate considering the town's position along the Murray and Campasne Rivers. Echuca is located just a short drive from Melbourne, Australia and is easily accessible by car. This small town has a long history as a port, and many of the town's charming details of years past are still visible to 21st century visitors. With a mixture of 19th century buildings, the world's largest fleet of paddleboats and modern conveniences, Echuca is the perfect destination for a comfortable holiday. The mixture of new and old is reflected throughout the town and is especially prominent in the holiday rentals, which include all of the comforts of home.

Enjoy Touches of Yesteryear

There are not many places where you see horse-drawn carriages strolling down the streets, but Echuca is one of them. Join one of the carriage tours of the port town, or just relax outside of one of the many boutique shops or dining establishments and listen to the clip-clop of hooves on the streets. As you venture through town, whether in a carriage or on foot, take in the historic architecture of the area. There are a number of buildings dating back to the mid 1800s in Echuca, some of which are even available for tours. You have the opportunity to enjoy the town's history from the river, thanks to the fleet of paddleboats in the area. Paddle steamer cruises area a fantastic way to explore the river and to learn more about the significance of these boats in Echuca's past.

Amuse Yourself at a Museum

Echuca is home to several museums, all of which include interesting subject matter to entice visitors. Perhaps the most exciting of the offerings is the National Holden Motor Museum. This Echuca attraction boasts a great collection of classic cars, as well as a significant Holden memorabilia. The Echuca Historical Society Museum is housed in a historic building and houses a large number of photographs, documents and paraphernalia from years past. Consult with the in-house researchers if you are on the hunt for something specific. There are also several smaller museums in other areas of Echuca.

Visit the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre

There is something for every visitor at the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre. The extremely popular local attraction does require a ticket for admittance; however, the price includes entry to a number of elements. Explore several small-scale museums to learn more about the town's past, or venture over to the area that highlights significant shipwrecks in the town's history. Working steam displays are available for viewing, as are engines of other types. While in the Discovery Centre, take a stroll across the Earnshaw Walkway, the Payne Walkway and the Overhead Footbridge. Visitors also have the option to venture out onto the wet dock and under the wharf.

Get on the Water

Even with the seasonal climate of Echuca, water sports are extremely popular. While visitors will not find any surfing spots in this holiday destination, other high-adrenaline sports, such as water skiing and wakeboarding and are popular. Water skiing is so popular in the area, that there is a large competition every year. Calmer river activities include canoeing, kayaking and leisurely rafting through the waters. Because the Murray River is so wide at points, even houseboats are accommodated with ease. Houseboat cruises are a nice way to experience the water at a leisurely pace. Of course, fishing and swimming are ever-popular options with crowds of all ages.

Do Not Miss Echuca

With plenty of reminders of years past and a variety of attractions to keep holidaymakers busy, Echuca is a wonderful destination for travellers young and old. The town's port history is still at the forefront of the tourist industry; however, the amount of water sport, shopping and high-end dining options in the town keep visitors coming back for more. Easily accessible and even easier to enjoy, Echuca is not a town to miss.

What a delight

5 of 5
My wife, young daughter and I stayed for two nights in February 2018 and wished we had been able to stay for much, much longer. Everything thing you need is provided and everything is to the highest standard. The heritage property has been renovated with care and style. I would come back to Echuca just to stay at Charlotte's Cottage.
