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 amphitheatre next to the mighty Murray. Historic paddlesteamers meander past all weekend, and occasionally the cockatoos 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's probably one of the prettiest, inexpensive, laid-back, family-friendly festivals in Australia - you'll love it.
In 2013 the Riverboats Music Festival will take place from Friday, February 15 to Sunday, February 17, with acts set to play including Pete Murray, James Reyne, Joe Camilleri & the Black Sorrows, Tim Rogers, Clare Bowditch, Archie Roach, Mia Dyson, Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes, Gossling, The Bombay Royale and more.
It will take you 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.
