Moama Bush & Riverside Walks

Enjoy the following bush and riverside walks in Moama:

Lagoon Walk

This is a short walk of 750 metres. It commences by taking the elevated walkway which was constructed in our Bicentennial year, 1988, as part of the Horseshoe Lagoon Bicentennial Park Development. The bridge is 200 metres long and crosses Horseshoe Lagoon. Wild ducks and other fauna inhabit the Lagoon and can be easily seen.

River and Wetlands Walk

This is a slightly longer walk covering 1.5km. Follow the footbridge across Horseshoe Lagoon to the river, turn right and follow the markers upstream to the site of the Old Moama Wharf, which was built in 1891 and was in use until 1954. Part of the old pylons can still be seen at low river levels. Follow the track along the river where there are several vantage points. At normal river level, the foreshore is very sandy and can be inviting on a warm day.

Turning inland from the river the opportunity exists to explore the beautiful wetlands area of Horseshoe Lagoon Bicentennial Park. Many varieties of bird life make this area their home. After exploring the wetlands, follow the main track back to the lagoon and follow the markers via the Moama Wharf to return to the start.

Moama Beach and Slipway Walk

This walk commences at the footbridge. Follow the markers under the road bridge down towards the Echuca/Moama bridge. Passing Dinky Di Houseboat mooring, the track follows the river, parallel to the bridge. Several vantage points are available. The old iron bridge was built in 1878 and until recently carried both rail and road traffic.

It is the oldest bridge across the Murray River. The track passess the beautiful Moama Beach area and following the markers through the tree canopy to the road to the Moama Slipway. The Slipway, which is still in use, has been refurbished and has proved a necessary service to river craft for over 100 years. A new steam boiler will soon be installed. Near the top of the slipway follow the markers to view the magnificent Echuca Wharf.
