74 Murray Esplanade, Echuca, Victoria, 3564

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.

Your entry ticket includes access to interactive displays, Evans Brothers sawmill display, working steam exhibits, Echuca Wharf, paddlesteamers moored at the wharf, cargo shed museum, historic children's games, Railway Station with its resident A2 steam locomotive and complimentary tour guides.

Experience the Port of Echuca in a very different manner and discover dark secrets of the past on a guided lantern tour of the Port After Dark. Runs every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
