Wander on the water

There are many reasons why people choose to holiday in Echuca Moama, but there is one thing that lies at the heart of them all – being by the river!

As river folk ourselves, we completely understand this. It is why we choose to live here. However, we will let you in on a little secret…the real magic happens when you explore the region from the water. Now that is really something else!

We have a number of businesses offering on-water experiences that are suitable for everyone, from the casual cruiser through to the adrenaline junkie.

Here are seven of our favourites to get you off the banks and onto the water this summer.

Cruise on a paddlesteamer

Echuca Paddlesteamers cruise the Murray River in Echuca Moama 

No visit to Echuca Moama is complete without taking a cruise on one of our historic paddlesteamers. Echuca Moama is the paddlesteamer capital of the world, after all! Take a one hour cruise down the river, or book a dining or overnight accommodated cruise. We also recommend the Wharf to Winery experience – a must do when in Echuca Moama. Find out more

Kayak or canoe

Sport Rec

Travel the river at your own pace, or join a guided tour in a one or two berth vessel. Our two favourite operators are Echuca Boat & Canoe Hire, located at the Victoria Park boat ramp, and River Country Adventours who specialise in guided overnight safari tours.

What’s SUP?

Dog on the SUP

Floating down the Murray River on a stand up paddleboard is a breathtaking experience – especially at sunrise or sunset. Hire a board, book a lesson or join a guided tour with Emu Outdoors or Echuca Moama SUP. We also recommend the Pedal and Paddle experience, which includes a two hour SUP hire and two hour eBike hire.

Conquer Aqua Island

Conquer the floating inflatable obstacle course at Aqua Island

Put your ninja warrior skills to the test on the giant floating playground at Aqua Island. Bring your family and friends and see who will conquer all the obstacles and be crowned King or Queen of the course!


Take an eco boat tour

Kingfisher Cruises Jordan

Explore one of the most significant areas along the Murray, Barmah National Park, on an eco boat tour with Kingfisher Cruises. Guided by a scientist, Kingfisher Cruises will take you into the narrowest section of the Murray River, the Barmah Narrows or Choke, and onto the Barmah Lakes, pointing out the flora and fauna that calls the park home and sharing the stories of this special area.


Live the river life

Houseboat family

There is no better way to experience life on the river than on a houseboat. Easy to drive and packed with the creature comforts of home, hiring a houseboat allows you to see more of the Murray and take everything along with you – including the kitchen sink!
