Mercure Port of Echuca
Echuca is a heritage river town located on the Murray River. Echuca is home to a fleet of paddle steamers and a great base for waterskiing, swimming, cruising or taking a houseboat holiday.
Echuca’s rich port history draws visitors to the town since restoration of the old port area. The survival of many original buildings allowed the streetscape to be renovated and the Echuca Wharf now offers visitors an exciting opportunity to experience a working steam port.
Visitors can take a relaxing hour-long cruise aboard one of the authentic paddle steamers or a leisurely one hour stroll on a self guided tour of the Echuca Wharf. Visitors can see as many as a dozen steamers moored along the riverbank, and can journey onboard one of the port’s three fully restored paddlesteamers that still travel the river.
Echuca is a great family holiday destination with its location right on the Murray River.
