The Port of Echuca Discovery Centre invites you to come walk the path of Echuca's river pioneers. A visit will allow you to explore the legend of Australia's pioneering spirit and learn how Australia's inland river system connected a fledgling colony to its growing cities and outside world.

The iconic Port of Echuca, located two and a half hours north of Melbourne on the banks of the Mighty Murray River, is one of Australia's premier regional tourist destinations.

Discover Echuca Moama's unique paddle steamer history through the living breathing vessels that still captivate the imagination of visitors today.

FREE ENTRY includes access to interactive displays, Evans Brothers sawmill display, working steam exhibits, Nationally Heritage-Listed Echuca Wharf, static paddlesteamer and barges moored at the Wharf and along the riverbank, Cargo Shed Kids Space, historic children's games, and the Port of Echuca Railway Station with its resident A2 steam locomotive.

We also offer daily guided tours throughout the Port area, which sets the scene and tells fantastic stories of Echuca's bustling river trade. Our tour guides are local history experts, with a well-developed skill in providing entertaining tours.

Experience the Port of Echuca by nightfall and discover dark secrets of the past on our Port After Dark guided lantern tour. Runs every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night.
