Federal and state government funding of $3.9 million was announced for this project in September 2014. The $4.9 million project will establish a highly accessible and visually attractive riverfront at Echuca's most visited riverside park, Riverboat Dock.
The area is the original site of Hopwood's punt crossing and is significant in Echuca's history. For over 100 years the community and visitors have enjoyed this riverside area.
The development re-establishes the connection of the community to the Murray River.
The project is anticipated to be completed by December 2017.
