Echuca holiday and sightseeing
I enjoyed the display of historic dresses, being able to step into a goal cell, and reading an unintentionally amusing 1950s text on sewing with advice such as needing to look your best while sewing just in case a visitor or your husband drop in.
Once I had the context it was interesting to look around Echuca and see details with more understanding. Well mostly! The thong tree was still just good fun.
The Oz Maze however was a bit quirky for me. We went there one evening and got so lost in the maze - looking for the capital cities of Australia - that I started to worry that a few of the broken planks had been ripped off in desperation by other lost souls. We ended up ringing the reception so they could show us the way out and stamp "lost in the maze" on our cards! The shame! But I was too hungry!
However I was pleased with our choice of the Canberra, built in 1912. I enjoyed seeing the view as we chugged along. The captain's commentary gave information on each paddle steamer we passed. Possibly most interesting was watching the hot and noisy engine in the middle of the boat and the paddles pushing the water around on either side.
