The Riverboats Music Festival is the Murray River’s premiere contemporary
Staged in the twin-towns of Echuca-Moama, Riverboats 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 corellas get a bit raucous at sunset.
There is one stage and plenty of room for dancing, great artists and some of
the best food trucks going round.
White Hat can recommend taking a 2.5 hour trip from
Melbourne to spend a weekend on the river for this annual celebration.
