Riverboats Music Festival: February 19 – 21

The 10th Anniversary Riverboats weekend in February 2022 was a great start to the year. Set in the beautiful Aquatic Reserve, the festival soothed the souls of thousands. We now look forward to a series of exciting events that will provide enjoyment to locals and visitors alike.

March & April 2022

During March and April 2022 there are plenty of activities to keep visitors entertained.  It’s a great time of year to enjoy the markets, wineries, cafes and restaurants.  Visit the local art galleries, take a drive to the Kyabram Fauna Park, Cactus Country, and the Depot in Deniliquin.  Visit Echuca’s number one Tourist Attraction (Tripadvisor) the Great Aussie Beer Shed, the Holden Museum, Billabong Ranch and of course a cruise on one of Echuca’s iconic Paddle Steamers is a must. And for some nostalgia you can book a cruise in a Flash Fairlane.  March and April provide perfect cycling weather – so book an E-bike Tour or hire an E-bike to explore Echuca Moama’s tracks, trails and cycling paths.

Southern 80: 13 – 15 May

The famous Southern 80 ski race weekend is scheduled for the 13 – 15 May 2022.  This is an internationally recognised water-skiing event that sees thousands of families flock to Echuca Moama.  The weekend’s events start with the traditional “Breakfast with the Stars” at the Kerribee Soundshell, Meninya Street Moama.    Racing begins at 8am Saturday and continues to Sunday afternoon.

At the finish line in Echuca’s Victoria Park precinct, spectators will enjoy live footage on the big screen, commentary all day, merchandise and trade displays.  And there’s activities for the kids, along with food and beverages from 10am.

Winter Blues Festival:  28 – 31 July

Echuca-Moama has established itself as the place to be for heart-starting blues and roots music.  This festival is the perfect antidote for a bad case of the winter blues, and is a sell-out weekend in Echuca Moama.  We recommend you book your accommodation early, to avoid disappointment

Previous festivals have seen more than 60 blues and roots performers from across the country play to crowds approaching 20,000.   The festival is based out of local pubs, clubs, cafes, restaurants as well as public stages in the Port of Echuca.
