A weekend away

We enjoyed a weekend away in Rutherglen, Corowa and Echuca. They were lovely towns to explore. We had delicious pies in Rutherglen for lunch and then visited a couple of wineries nearby. We ate a wonderful dinner too at the Italian restaurant in Corowa!
 On Saturday we headed to Echuca and wandered around the town. Luckily they have a Beechworth bakery there and they have beestings!
In the afternoon we walked from Moama, where we were staying, across the old iron bridge to Echuca.

 We booked a steam paddle boat ride on Sunday morning and even in the rain, it was a lovely experience. We were lucky and rode on the Adelaide, which is the oldest steam paddle boat in the world! It is 150 years old. We also saw the boat that was used in the series, All the rivers run, which really put Echuca on the map in the 1980s. I loved that series!
