The Riverboats Music Festival is the Murray River's premiere contemporary music event. Staged in the twin-towns of Echuca-Moama, the festival takes place under towering river red gums in a natural amphitheater next to the mighty Murray. Historic paddle steamers meander past all weekend, and occasionally the corellas get a bit raucous at sunset. There is one stage and plenty of room for dancing, brilliant artists and delicious regional food and wine. It is probably one of the prettiest, inexpensive, laid-back festivals in Australia.It takes around two and a half hours to get to Echuca-Moama from Melbourne, and there are plenty of great places to stay when you get here.
