Steam Rally Echuca, this major community event is annually organized by the Rotary Club of Echuca Moama as their fundraising project for the year, passing on funds to deserving not for profit causes and organisations around the district.
One of our region â€™s longest running major events, Steam Rally Echuca will showcase more than 550 exhibits of working yesteryear and entertain every member of the family with many other different things to see and experience.
This family or enthusiast event is a weekend of entertainment to cover all ages and interests annually held on the Queenâ€™s Birthday weekend. Whilst preserving the historical nature of the event by showcasing steam engines valued at well over $500,000 each, vintage cars and working horses, a number of initiatives will roll out to attract a younger audience, including the return of the full-size steaming â€œThomas the Tankâ€ engine.
The first â€œSteam Rallyâ€ held in 1963 â€“ then known as the â€œEchuca Steam, Horse and Vintage Rallyâ€ is now showcased at Rotary Park, Rose St (or off the Northern Highway), Echuca. Through the foresight of earlier Rotary members, the Club owns the rally venue, Rotary Park.
With a rebranding facelift in 2010 the â€˜Echuca Steam, Horse and Vintage Car Rallyâ€™, is now titled â€˜Steam Rally Echucaâ€™. The event celebrates its 49th birthday this coming Queenâ€™s Birthday weekend. Carrying with it is the new modern logo which has been designed to represent a number of other changes being implemented as it gears up for its 50th Anniversary year.
