Echuca and bordering towns, such as Moama, offer a variety of things to do for visitors of all ages. Known for its historic port and stunning natural scenery, Echuca is a great destination for those looking to experience a bit of Australia’s rich history and culture.

One of the top things to do in Echuca is to take a stroll along the historic port. This area of town was once the busiest port on the Murray River and is now a popular tourist destination. Visitors can take a guided tour of the port and learn about its history, or simply wander around on their own and take in the sights and sounds of the river.

Another popular activity in Echuca is to take a ride on a paddle steamer. These historic boats have been restored and are now used for sightseeing tours of the Murray River. Visitors can take a leisurely cruise and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
If you’re wanting to just visit one winery for the day, you can always consider a Wharf to Winery cruise and lunch option.

For those interested in history, the Echuca Historical Society Museum is a must-see attraction. This museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the area and features a wide range of artefacts and exhibits. Visitors can learn about the history of the Murray River, the paddle steamers, and the life of the people who lived and worked in the area.

Visitors can also explore the nearby national parks and take in the stunning scenery. Popular options include the Barmah National Park and the Gunbower National Park.

One of the most unique and fun things to do for a group in Echuca is to take a winery tour. The region around Echuca is home to a number of wineries that produce some of Australia’s finest wines and in a region that is quite unique when compared to other cooler climates, such as the Mornington-Peninsula or the Yarra Valley. Visitors can take a tour of the wineries, learn about the winemaking process, and sample a huge range of wines. A winery tour is a great way to experience the local culture and taste some delicious wines. Ever tasted a range of fortified wines? Now’s your chance!

You can spend a half day or a full day exploring wines. The wine tour can also be completely customised to your preferences. Have a full sit-down lunch included or simply share some delicious platters, using delicious local produce. 

Many wineries also offer additional activities such as vineyard walks, wine tastings, and food pairing. 

If food and wine pairing sounds like your type of thing, you’d like to experience a ride along the Murray River and you’re not as keen to visit the wineries….then perhaps you need to enquire about our Murray River Cruise Degustation. Spend up to 3 hours cruising the river, whilst tasting perfectly paired gourmet indulgences – both food and wine!
