During the 1870s, Echuca became the largest inland port in Australia. It was strategically located at the shortest distance point between the Murray River and the major city of Melbourne, making it an important river port and railway junction. Steam-powered paddleboats would dock at the 400-meter long redgum Echuca Wharf, where their cargoes, such as wool, wheat, livestock, timber, and other grains, were unloaded and transported by rail to Melbourne. The Echuca Wharf is a Heritage Place and has been listed on the Australian National Heritage List.
The River Murray from Source to Sea was my second major coffee table book and was published in 1982 by Rigby Publishers.
