Description

Start at the entrance to the Port of Echuca on the corner of Murray Esplanade and Leslie St. Walk past the massive log on a wagon, the wood turner, old-time photo caravan to the Information Centre at the far end.
On the right you will see the Riverboat Dock where paddlesteamers line up waiting for customers. The Canberra, Pride of the Murray and the Emmylou have been churning up the waters of the Murray River taking passengers for scenic rides and still operate much the same as in the 1800s. Also on the Murray River are houseboats, canoes and other watercraft that all share the river space.
Continue following the river on your right side enjoying the sights and sounds of jet skis, skiiers and paddlesteamers along with the prolific bird life. Maybe a spot of fishing to while the time away?
Pass the Murray and Campaspe River junction, opposite Merool Caravan Park on the north bank. Continue on through the gate out of the park and onto Crofton St past Victoria Park Oval. Note the elaborate white fountain and massive James Mackintosh Red Gum Trophy next to the Echuca Holiday Park.
Cross Dickson St to Watson St back towards the Murray River. Veer right along the river and you will end up at the start in the Port of Echuca.
