Echuca Accommodation

Author: Jamie Horne

Echuca and its twin town of Moama on the New South Wales side of the River combine to form the destination popularly known as Echuca Moama. A summary of good accommodation can be found on the Echuca Moama website: Echuca Local and Visitor Information

Bed and Breakfasts: There are several traditional Bed and Breakfast, or ‘B & B’ as they are often denoted, in Echuca Moama. Also sometimes called a ‘Guest House’ it is a residence or property where both the owners and guests live under the same roof. A Bed and Breakfast is often a large family home or property which has either been specifically converted, or purpose built, to accommodate guests in their own rooms, and in most cases with private bathrooms. In some cases bathrooms may be shared amongst guests. The hosts live on the same premises as the guests, usually in a separate part of the Bed and Breakfast. As the name suggests this accommodation option includes both bed and a sumptuous breakfast freshly cooked, or prepared, each morning by the hosts.

Self Contained Accommodation in Echuca Moama is very popular and provides all the facilities you require to enjoy your time away from home. Some facilities, such as laundry, may have to be shared but your accommodation will include full cooking facilities and a refrigerator. Self contained accommodation can vary from quaint historic cottages, functional homes, cabins, and modern apartments.  The self contained option is ideal for families, groups and those who want a bit more privacy.

Hotels: Hotel accommodation usually consists of a room with an ensuite bathroom and lounge area, though some hotel rooms are more like large apartments and fully self contained. Many hotels will include and in-house restaurant, swimming pool and may offer conference facilities.

Motels: This form of accommodation is very popular in Echuca Moama and has evolved from the word combination of ‘Motorist’ and ‘Hotel’ to give a ‘Motel’. Motels are literally accommodations for those people with vehicles who can drive up to the doors of their rooms. The rooms usually consist of a bedroom and an ensuite bathroom, though some motels (or Motor Inns) do offer apartment style, fully self contained options.

Houseboats: Houseboats are a popular accommodation option in many areas of Australia. They are literally large floating motel rooms or fully self contained luxurious homes which enable guests to cruise down the river or cruise the lakes whilst enjoying all the benefits of water based holiday.

Caravan Parks: Caravan parks have evolved into mini resorts, or ‘Tourist Parks’ as many are now called. They may offer all of, or a mixture of permanent onsite caravans available for short term or long term hire, powered and unpowered sites for visiting caravans, camping sites and onsite self contained cabins. Caravan parks will contain an amenities block which will include shared toilet and bathroom facilities and a laundry. Many will also include a camp kitchen, BBQ’s, swimming pools, mini golf, kiosks, open fire places and children’s play grounds.

Backpackers and Youth Hostels: Backpacker and youth hostel accommodation provide a cheap and convenient option for budget travellers. Rooms will nearly always include a shared bathroom, though some Youth Hostel rooms are more like motel rooms. Single and double rooms are often available but more often rooms are dormitory style. Kitchen facilities are shared, as are laundry and lounge rooms. They are a great way to meet and join up with other travellers, to discuss stories and to relax from the sometimes pressures of travelling.
