Echuca has long been a popular getaway for Melbourne and Bendigo folk alike. But few know that there are also a range of excellent wedding venues in Echuca. It’s always great to get out of the city: your spouse and your guests will doubtless thank you for the opportunity!
For a stylish, yet classic wedding, you can’t really go past a vineyard. And Echuca has an abundance of vineyards offering wedding ceremonies and receptions. The Echuca Moama wine region sprung up around fertile soil and proximity to the Murray– an abundant source of water for the vines. Some of the best selling wines in the region are port wines. Echuca also has a great coffee and chocolate culture, which is sure to add a hint of luxury to your wedding experience. For those who appreciate the fine wine and food, there really is no better option. But really, nothing is more picturesque than a wedding among the vines. There will doubtless be wedding photos that you will always treasure.
Before or after the wedding, your guests will doubtless appreciate a little exploration time. Before or after they leave the venue, they will find plenty to do and see around Echuca. For the nature lovers, there is easy access to both cycling and walking trails through the bush. The Barmah National Park with its river red gums is particular popular with nature lovers. Your guests can also explore the Murray via the world’s largest fleet of paddlesteamers– one Echuca’s main attractions.
Of course, the natural beauty is a huge part of what makes Echuca an ideal wedding venue. It’s a beautiful and a convenient locale. It’s less than three hours from Melbourne by car, and just over one from Bendigo. If your guests aren’t local Victorians, it’s not even that hard to access via the Melbourne airport. A simple bus ride can take them to Southern Cross Station, from which there are further bus and train options. And once they arrive, there is abundant accommodation available!
If you’re looking for a wedding venue, Echuca and one of its many vineyards is a great choice. When exploring your options, you will be surprised by the quality and diversity of your options.
