Echuca perfectly unites history with modern comforts.
The ideal place to stay in Echuca is the Steampacket Inn. This National Trust-listed building is located in the port area.
The Steampacket Inn is a comfortable B&B that offers gorgeous views of the river from some of its rooms.
The heritage of the property has been maintained, with tasteful decorations of lace, roses and period furniture.
Echuca, the ‘two river city’, is home to some high-quality restaurants. Regional produce is used in many of the area’s best eating establishments.
At the end of this year, the much anticipated River Gum River Walkways, a new $14.2 million wharf complex, will be complete. An interpretative centre will be part of this new development.
At Echuca, visitors can ride on a paddle steamer, travel throughout the town on a hired bicycle and collect produce for a picnic. Farmers’ markets are popular with visitors and locals and are not only a great place to sample and buy delectable fresh produce, they are also a great place to enjoy live entertainment or enjoy activities such as pony rides.
