Steam Rally Echuca is a fund raising initiative of the Echuca/Moama Rotary Club now in its 51st year of providing support to not-for-profit causes and organisations in the district.

Best known for its fleet of historic Paddle-steamers Echuca hosts the annual Steam Rally over the Queen's Birthday weekend


Traditionally held over the Queen's Birthday weekend, this year's event will be staged on Saturday and Sunday the 7th and 8th June, 9 am to 4.30 pm daily and aims to showcase more than 500 exhibitors including steam engines, vintage cars & trucks, working horses and a full program of wood-chopping.

Both days of the rally are jam packed full of parades and attraction which promise to make this a great event for the whole family.

Attractions include tractor and truck pull competitions, Blacksmithing and Blade-shearing demonstrations, the Clan McLeod Pipe Band and Echuca Federal Band, pony and miniature railway rides.

Old time camp cooking and a modern country kitchen will ensure plenty of food for everyone.

A natural extension of all these land-locked activities is a visit to the historic Port of Echuca, home to the largest fleet of operational paddle-steamers in the world, a cavalcade of steam on the mighty Murray River.
