Echuca Accommodation Guide

Use this Echuca accommodation guide to plan your next stay in the Murray River region.

Echuca is set on the Murray River north of Melbourne.

Echuca is an Aboriginal name that means "meeting of the waters".

In the mid 1800’s it was one of Australia’s busiest inland ports.

The wharf has since been preserved and now offers paddle steamer cruises, historic buildings, and museums.

Swimming, boating, and fishing are very popular activities and there are several wineries just outside of town.

Most of all, Echuca is renowned for its relaxing lifestyle making it a perfect vacation destination.
