Where is Echuca?

Echuca, originally Victoria's largest inland port, is located on the banks of the Murray River, 205 kms north of Melbourne. Famous for its massive riverside wharf, which originally was five times the present size, it was built at three distinct heights to cater for the rise and fall of the river and to allow the loading and unloading of river freight to the railhead in town. The river trade expanded during the 1850's, as did the development of the Australian interior. The waterfront area is still maintained in the period of the paddle steamers, being one of the town's main tourist attractions. The area was used as a natural river crossing for cattle farmed in the Riverina of NSW being sent to market in Melbourne. Milling of the local Red Gum became one of the key industries until after WWI when soldier settlement provided opportunities in dairying, milk processing and fruit growing. In recent times wineries have developed around Echuca.
