Echuca Explorer - Saturday 13th October 2018
hero
Steamrail invites you to join our tour to the historic Murray River township of Echuca. This will be a chance to travel behind our 1915 built steam locomotive A2 986 and 1951 built Hudson R761 (as far as Seymour) and to relax in our magnificently restored country E and S type compartment carriages.
Our journey for the forward trip will take on a different route through Seymour and Murchison East and branch off on to the rarely used cross-country line from Toolamba to Echuca. This line seldom sees passenger trains as it is a freight only line. So sit back and relax as we wind our way through to Echuca.
Upon arrival in Echuca there will be just under four hours to experience country hospitality at your leisure. There is the Port of Echuca, famous for its wharf and paddlesteamers. Grab a bite to eat in one of the many pubs or bakeries along the way. Alternatively you may opt for one of the packages we have put together, making it easy to enjoy your time here.
EMMYLOU PADDLESTEAMER CRUISE WITH LUNCH
Two hour paddlesteamer ride on the famous Emmylou with lunch and a glass of wine, beer or soft drink included in the price. This boat sails at 1.15pm so you can either take a lovely walk to the port or a bus is provided for easy transfer.

This option is limited to 30 people only.

 

PRIDE OF THE MURRAY CRUISE WITH LUNCH

This cruise will be departing from the wharf and exclusively for our use only. Enjoy a two hour cruise along the Murray River that will include a two course lunch (drinks at extra cost). There will be a shuttle bus to take you to the boat and return to the railway station.

 

HERO CRUISE WITH LUNCH - By popular demand, NEW OPTION ADDED

A bus transfer is provided between Echuca Railway Station and the wharf. Please indicate any dietary options when booking in the 'Additional Information' section when booking. 

 

WALKING TOUR OF ECHUCA

Echuca guided tour of historic buildings and places. Join our guide at the Echuca station and enjoy the wonderful historical points that Echuca has to offer. Your tour goes for around one and a half hours, so if you have walking difficulties, this may not be an option for you.
