Echuca Moama

Nestled on the banks of the mighty Murray River and set against a backdrop of idyllic natural bushland, the border towns of Echuca Moama exude a raw, timeless and authentic beauty that is unrivalled in Australia.

Echuca Moama itself offers a tale of two cities. One of good old-fashioned country hospitality borne out of a rich agricultural and river trade heritage. And another of modern-day sophistication, built on a growing demand for world-class wine, dining, nature-tourism and entertainment experiences.

Its back yard opens onto a natural landscape of magnificent river red gums, breathtaking river panoramas and a myriad of native wildlife. And at its front door lies an exhilarating world of award-winning wineries, restaurants, festivals, events, international bowling greens, day spas, a championship golf course, tourist drives, cycling trails and walking tracks.

Echuca Moama is a destination like no other. A place to bask in glorious, glorious sunshine, to experience the very best that life has to offer, and to reconnect with yourself, your family and your friends.
