  • Very interesting tour around the old (well by Australian Standard's) port. The Guide was very interesting and I actually learned a lot about Australian history.  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit. Joel our tour guide gave us both a factual and humorous guide around the Discovery Centre. The tour lasts about 45 minutes but with lots to see you won't get board. Look out....  more »

  • Echuca, excellent place to visit. Always gravitate to the Port... always take a trip up the river, taste of local wine etc...like to help the local economy. Family live here, therefore visit yearly at least...but always enjoy all that Echuca has to offer...
  • Highly recommend this tour. The workers were so helpful and friendly. We did a guided tour with Jenny and she was fabulous. Kept us engaged and took us back in time. Honestly do the tour it was so cool we got to see an underground pub and learn about the steam engine. We also met a man who sung us the Murray River welcome song. He was great too. The tickets were very affordable and they even had kids dress ups and a quiz for the kids to keep them engaged too. Would come back. One of the best things I have done in echuca.
