Your day at Port of Echuca will offer an experience unlike any other. Our group activity option includes:
Historic Port Tour
Tread the boards of our famous "Redgum Wharf", established 1865.
Visit the Cargo Shed Museum with our ten-minute audio/visual.
Learn of the lively character Henry Hopwood who founded our township and of how we became the largest inland port in Australia.
Marvel at the magnificent view of the river at the Port and learn how high the flood waters have reached during the history of Echuca.
Visit the Star Hotel with its underground bar and `secret' escape tunnel - once host to rollicking river men and "high-kicking".
Visit an Historic Sawmill site, and then inspect the many steam engines on display. This is
a reminder of the days when steam ruled on the Land, on Rail and on the River with our magnificent fleet of authentic Paddlesteamers.
