Review of: Bendigo, Echuca & The Mighty Murray
Excellent trip, enjoy the view of the countryside out of Melbourne. Lucky enough to see a Kangaroo! The visit to the beautiful Murray river on a paddle boat is lovely as is Echuca. Also the trip on a vintage tram is a treat. There is also a very interesting and informative tour of the Deborah gold mine, All this done by a professional, friendly and informative guide. Would highly recommend, everyone so friendly, would love to come back!
