Stay at Winbi and the bush comes to you
The highway sign

As you approach the Winbi Resort a sign points to the entrance, but your eyes go beyond the sign as you look upon a stretch of the Murray River with houseboats moored along the near and far bank.

The entrance

The resort boasts 50, one, two and three-bedroom units, some privately owned.

Units and gardens
All units are set amongst the well maintained gardens.

The units are set among 18 acres of manicured gardens which all units look out upon. Some units have river views.

River view units
These units look across lawns to the river.

All units are self-contained and are not serviced daily. They are all clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee ingredients are supplied.

With its location on the bank of the Murray River a private boat launching ramp is provided for guests. Spending a little time riverside you are often rewarded with a passing parade of speeding boats, with and without water skiers and at a more sedate pace, houseboats.

Jet ski
The boat launching ramp is very popular.

Speed boat
On water entertainment is often seen.

Other facilities at the resort include two pools and a heated spa, tennis courts, BMX track, playground, BBQs and a games rooms.

The well treed and bushed gardens attract a variety of birdlife.

Wildlife also visit Winbi. Rabbits and an occasional hare are often seen, as are kangaroos. It is not uncommon to wake of a morning to see a kangaroo feeding on the lush green grass that is part of the landscape.

We have stayed at Winbi many times over a number of years and always look forward to returning.

On arrival guests are presented with several vouchers: a 20% discount with Murray River Paddle Steamers and complimentary tea & coffee at the Beechworth Bakery in Echuca.

Vouchers presented upon arrival.

Presentation of your key tag at the Moama RSL and the Rich River Golf Club will give you a 10% discount on meals.

The tariff for a one bedroom garden unit is $120 per night, with a two night minimum stay.

During the 'low' season, 23 April to 20 September 2019 an Autumn and Winter package is available. This can give you four nights for only $299. Ring them on 03 5480 9044 or email for details and ask to be put on their mailing list for future packages.

Moama is just over the Murray River from Echuca.

If you want a quiet, relaxing, 'in the bush' feeling without actually going bush, Winbi is for you.
