Pride of the Murray

Australia - Steamboats at the Port of Echuca
18 images

There was a time when steamboats plied the Murray River to carry produce and timber on their way to Melbourne and Adelaide. Today it's mainly tourists that get carried about, but they still do it in style. These majestic boats add a touch of class to the rugged landscape of the Murray as they disappear around the bend, just plumes of steam or the high pitched whistle rising above the river gums.
