Travel Advice for Echuca Moama - November 2022 (updated 11.11.2022)

 

Come and support businesses in Echuca Moama and its Districts!

While October didn’t exactly go to plan, we still love our river living and are looking forward to things getting back to normal soon.

In the meantime, we are missing you and we’d love you to come and support our businesses in Echuca Moama and Districts even though the river is still off-limits.

Actually, it is a great opportunity – while our beautiful (but rather attention-seeking) majestic Murray is out of bounds – to highlight all the wonderful things that tend to normally sit in its shadow. 

Things like: 

  • Our top-notch local breweries and a wide variety of cafes, clubs, pubs, and award-winning restaurants. 
  • Our art galleries, museums, and historic structures.
  • Our many quirky and beautifully presented local boutiques.
  • Our glorious golf courses, and bowling greens, picnic spots, and excellent walking, hiking, and cycling trails. 
  • Our flash Fairlane tour or scenic Murray Darling flights.
  • Our many hidden treasures to be found in the wider region, such as the Kyabram Fauna Park and awe-inspiring silo art trails.

Of course, your safety is a top priority, so please consider the following when planning your visit

❗A number of our accommodation providers are affected by the floods, so our Visitor Information Centre is here to help you with accommodation bookings. Call us at 1800 804 446 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

❗Road closures are still in place across the region which may add to your travel time. Call us at 1800 804 446 or view Victorian road closure information at https://traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au For local road closures within Murray River Council's region visit http://bit.ly/3GmkQFs and for statewide NSW road closure information visit https://livetraffic.com  

❗ Due to the high water, no recreational activities are permitted on the water

❗ High water conditions bring an increase in mosquito numbers in flooded areas, so we encourage all visitors to wear repellent and check government sites for up-to-date health advice.

❗ Wildlife has also been displaced by floods, so while it can be great to see some up closer than usual, be careful and protect all our wildlife, creatures great, and small.
