The Great Aussie Beer Shed

Reviewed By Jenny W - Adelaide, Australia

This is our second trip to this attraction in Echuca and not to be missed. Neil has collected by far an impressive amount of memorabilia, including Australian farm machinery, historical Cobb & co coaches, horse drawn carriages, transport items, homewares and of course his beer collection!
This is a not to be missed visit, not just for the blokes.

Port of Echuca Discovery Centre

The Port of Echuca is a living monument to the 1870's when it was Australia's largest inland port and indeed the third largest port in Australia outside Sydney and Melbourne. Authentic steam driven paddlesteamers depart daily from the Echuca Wharf which originally extended 333 metres in length in the 1880's and has been recently been reconstructed.Home of the TV series "All the Rivers Run", the Port of Echuca will provide you with a glimpse of what live was really like in the late 1800's. With the new Discovery Centre now open, it is indeed an attraction not to be missed.

Echuca Chocolate Company

Reviewed By Peter2651 - Bendigo, Australia

Like all specalist chocolate shops the products are not cheap but are homemade and made from quality chocolate which you can taste at the counter. What we came for however was to try the range of liquer port. We ended up buying the Chocolate and Chocolate Orange bottles. They also do a White version. At $25 a bottle they are good value and they even threw in a bar of chocolate per bottle as a bonus. Definately worth a visit and taste.

It takes 10-15 minutes from Echuca to get there, unsealed roads towards the end.
The Minigolf and archery are indoors, so good options for any weather.
There are plenty of other activities - animal feeding, pony rides, paddle boats and rock climbing walls.
Well worth a visit to check it out.

This was a great find. I made the quick trip out every time I was in Echuca and bought freshly picked strawberries. Miles better than what I could buy in the shops- they were so fresh, fragrant and kept for ages. I didn't pick my own, but it's a top spot for families to go and spend some time picking what they need. Great new business, great young staff.
