Call in to the twin river towns of Cobram Barooga, centre of a large stone-fruit growing industry and a good place to jump on the Farm Gate Trail, before continuing on to Echuca Moama.
This historic port town brings plenty to the table, with self-guided food and wine trails and a slew of fine wineries, including Silverfox, St Annes, the Carriages, Stevens Brook Estate, Cape Horn and the Old School Winery. A paddlesteamer lunch cruise to Morrisons Riverview winery or a dinner cruise on PS Emmylou is a highlight. Pick up a copy of the Echuca-Moama Food & Wine Trail map and brochure from the visitor centre.
Echuca also has some fine old pubs and cafes, and the renowned Oscar W’s, overlooking the river on the historic wharf, is a must.
