5 Apr 2015 Echuca’s Easter Sunday Cruise & Fireworks Display

Lunch was at a milk bar in town. Salad sandwich and coffee. Came back to the Inn to organise my photos and relax a little before Echuca’s Easter Sunday Cruise & Fireworks Display. Took some great photos of the corellas swooping around gumtrees outside the lounge room of the inn. Went out into the Port to see what was happening around 5.30pm. The place was jumping with people. There was a Koori market and people were queuing to get into the Discovery Centre for the Easter display.

We’ve never been into the Port properly so I bought tickets and had a look around. It is quite large inside with plenty of room for people to watch the display. Peter joined me in time for the fireworks and we got a prime spot in an elevated area. The paddle steamers glided past with flares blazing then the fireworks started with the full moon shining brightly in the background.

After the excitement we had dinner at Antonio’s. The place was packed and we waited a long time for dinner – prawn and chorizo risotto for Peter and stuffed chicken breast for me. Mine was worth the wait. Not sure about Peter’s.
