Heritage Festival: Wrecks and Paddle Steamers Exhibition


Paddle Steamers discovered Echuca-Moama in 1853. Through the boom years and after the trade finished, many boats and barges sank and lay for years in the mud of the Murray River.

In recent years some of these have been rediscovered, pulled from the mud and have been lovingly restored to their former glory. Now they are being used to convey tourists instead of wool, wheat and wood. This exhibition tells some of these stories.
