The history of Echuca is closely linked to the great inland Murray Darling river system and the paddle steamers that provided a link for isolated inland communities and farmers to access Melbourne and overseas markets. The Port of Echuca became the largest inland port in Australia. The riverboat trade was of national importance because it opened up inland Australia for settlement, increasing the country’s wool production.

The combination of history, natural beauty, wildlife parks, water sports and fishing, golf courses, makes for an attractive and interesting experience. An active cultural community, a wonderful climate, excellent shops, restaurants, cafes, clubs, good education facilities, make Echuca Moama a great place to live.
