Echuca has a long and proud tradition of building and restoring paddlesteamers, with more than 100
paddlesteamers having been built here. Today, Echuca Paddlesteamers offers the experience of being close
to the mighty Murray River aboard our fleet of steam-driven paddlesteamers.

Echuca Paddlesteamers are fueled by an endorsed timber supplier, boasting and implementing a ‘Sustainable
Timber Harvesting policy.’
