Known as a living monument to the 1870s, the Port of Echuca was once the third largest inland port in Australia.
Learn about its history with a visit to the Discovery Centre, which includes a working exhibit of the Evan Brother’s sawmill and an original working Steam Display.
Walk along the banks of the river to see the PS Adelaide, the oldest wooden-hulled paddlesteamer in the world that’s still operational.
After exploring the outdoor centre and interpretive displays, board a one-hour sightseeing cruise to experience these vessels first-hand and take in the sights along the riverbank. Sightseeing cruises on the weekend are available on the century-old PS Canberra, PS Alexander Arbuthnot , PS Adelaide, or PS Emmylou (in line with other scheduled cruises).
If you prefer a river experience paired with morning tea, choose a Café Cruise by MV Mary Ann, who has been welcoming guests for over 25 years. They also operate an afternoon cruise at 2pm, if you prefer a relaxing cruise and a bite to eat before your drive home.
