Wander through Murray Esplanade and stop in at the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre, Custom House Gallery and the Foundry Arts Space.  We also recommend a visit to the nearby Holden Museum and Echuca Historical Society.  As you meander the streets, enjoy a coffee or lunch at some of the our amazing cafes and restaurants.  There’s plenty of choice!

4.Visit the Wineries

Take a drive (or ride your bike) to St. Anne’s Winery for a complementary wine tasting.  We also highly recommend their platters.  We suggest that while you’re in Moama stop by at Morrison’s Riverview Winery – a lovely setting for lunch.  While you’re on the NSW side you could also visit Restdown Winery in Caldwell and the Old School Winery in Woomboota (we suggest you drive to these locations as they are too far on a bike!)   Another favourite Moama destination is Three Black Sheep. They serve great coffee and have a delicious breakfast and lunch menu.

No trip to Echuca Moama is complete without experiencing a Paddlesteamer Cruise. 

Check out the Murray River Paddlesteamers or Echuca Paddlesteamers cruise schedules.  Murray River Paddlesteamers offer a one-hour family cruise aboard the 108-year-old PS Canberra and the popular Wharf to Winery lunch cruise.
