Echuca’s historic port features a huge red gum wharf with a multitude of paddle steamers including PS Adelaide, the world’s oldest wooden hulled paddle steamer; PS Pevensey and PS Alexander Arbuthnot, the last paddle steamer built during the Murray River’s heyday. Apart from the boats, which make regular cruises, the historic port is home to numerous heritage buildings, many that can be seen for free before going through the entrance gates, although you need to pay to see the boats, the Wharf Shed Museum and the wharf.
