Be still, and it is the silence of the ages that you notice first about the ancient bush and waterways of Australia. For millennia the Murray River has flowed from the Snowy Mountains to the sea. Aboriginal legend says it was carved from the curving track of the Rainbow Serpent in the Dreamtime.

Today at Echuca-Moama you can cruise this iconic river through lands where indigenous peoples once hunted and fished. They were followed by the explorers, settlers, loggers, farmers, and the riverboats which opened up inland south-eastern Australia to development and trade. Scores of paddlesteamers plied the vast Murrumbidgee, Darling and Murray river systems between1865 and 1890. They converged on the Port of Echuca to offload their rich cargoes at its rail head. In her colourful, boisterous heyday, Echuca reigned as the most important inland port in the nation.

Living on the Murray is the best way to appreciate all it has to offer. Houseboating offers the ideal way to forget work and worries, and travel at your own pace with family and friends. You can do everything, or nothing, as you wish.
