This special short adventure celebrates the Golden Age of rail and river transport in the colony of Victoria. It culminates in a re-enactment of the famous ‘meeting of the whistles’ at the Port of Echuca, where steam train and steam boat connected in a hail of whistles echoing over the town and river – the sound that once reminded one and all of the prosperity and enterprise of their great state. Join us on a round-trip that showcases not only Victoria’s culturally-rich cities and towns, but also its unique natural beauty, iconic gold-rush history, sublime local gastronomy and character-filled railways.
