If you've dreamed of houseboats and paddlesteamers and wished you could holiday on one, or simply love the romance of it all, come along and dream some more in Echuca. Combined with the Riverboats Music Festival 2018 filled with family-friendly vibes and top class live music lined up, amongst other entertainment, there's no better time to let your dreams fly and have a great time at the same time. The festival will run from 16 to 18 February (gates open 5.30pm on Friday, 1pm on Saturday and 10.30am Sunday) at Aquatic Reserve, Heygarth St, Echuca for the first two dates, then at Junction Moama, 6 Shaw St, Moama for the last day on the 18th.

The quickest way to get tickets for the Paddlesteamer Sideshows and the Annual Riverboats Breakfast securely online is via the Trybooking website. It's the quickest way to get instant confirmation, or you can take your chances by buying over the counter at the Echuca-Moama Visitor Info Centre at 2 Heygarth St, in Echuca (open 7 days a week 9am to 5pm) or by calling them on 1800 804 446. Subject to availability, limited tickets may be available at the gate over the Festival weekend, however you are strongly encouraged to pre-book online.

It'll make your heart swell and your head spin, just thinking of the world class lineup that are Neil & Liam Finn, Kasey Chambers, Josh Pyke, The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda Bull, The Teskey Brothers and more, along with well seasoned Festival MC, Brian Nankervis at the helm. Check the schedule for further details, keeping in mind, it is subject to change. For further information, check the website.

The Riverboats Music Festival was a Gold Winner (Festivals and Events) at the 2017 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards and is the Murray River's premiere music event. 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, brilliant artists and delicious regional food and wine. It is one of the prettiest, most inexpensive, laid-back festivals in Australia. Come along for a weekend on the river and keep the festivities going a little longer by heading to the Junction Moama on the 18th of February for the second Riverboats wind-down. It'll be a chilled session of grazing plates and delicious beverages, conveniently a quick walk across the bridge, as soon as Kasey Chambers leaves the stage. See you there!
