On our 4 day trip to Echuca we stayed at the Echuca Holiday Park and the main reason why I booked here to stay was the location of how close it was to High St, the centre of town. To walk it is only about 6 minutes. The back of the park is located next to the Murray River but is bordered by a gate so you cant get through there, but you are so close to the centre of town you can access it from there.
The only thing I didn't like about the park was that it was fairly cramped (especially around school holidays) and not a lot of shade on the sites which is a must on 40 degree days!
The park also has cabins which from the outside look like decent size. They seem to be a lot more popular.
Close to town
Reception area has a grocery store
Great large camp
Nice clean large bathrooms
Washing machine area - $4
One of the things I enjoyed most about this park (besides having a resort pool for those warmer days) was that the campers had the best view...the sites were lined up along the river, with views down the bank to the water.
Here is the morning view from our tent.
The park had one of the best camp kitchens we’d ever seen in a caravan park –next to the pool, an undercover bbq and seating area that led to a kitchen with sliding glass doors, and inside a full size stove, microwave, kettle, fridge, sinks and more – it was just perfect for us, and we could go out and buy ingredients to have a proper dinner.
Our unpowered tent site cost us $12 ea (so only $36 for all of us) and the advantage of the unpowered area was that those sites were right on the top of the high river bank overlooking the Murray river.
Even paying the basic rate, as we were, we still had access to all the great facilities – floodlit tennis court, resort style pool with deck chairs, shade sails and palm trees (one of us tried it out at in the evening)
There was also a small lake which some of the ensuite cabins looked out over.
This well established B&B is done in traditional early 1900's style. Very close to the river, wharf and the historical end of town.
An excellent cooked breakfast is included in the Tarrif of Aust $100 per couple
Rooms are furnisted in the style of a time gone by
This is a single storey typical chain motel.
The rooms aren't huge but they're not cramped either.
Facilities are average with the usual tea making facilities and such.
While I couldn't really fault the place I couldn't get over excited.
It's well positioned within easy distance of the main tourist area (Port of Echuca) and realtively quiet as the main highway passes a couple of blocks away.
It's not the sort of place you'd honeymoon but it's quite acceptable for a night or two.
If you want to try something a bit different, hire yourself a houseboat and spend some time exploring the Murray River. There are many houseboats that you can hire in and around Echuca...
You can get all different sized houseboats and have anything from a relaxing weekend away to a huge birthday party on the boats. It's great for something different.
You can travel along the Murray River spending your time relaxing, fishing, swimming or whatever... It's a very nice area...
