Echuca-Moama is still bustling with tourists enjoying what the region has to offer.
Tom and Helen McCrimmon were visiting from Melbourne and spent time riding the free port picnic bikes on Sunday.
The pair picked up the cruiser-style bikes at St Anne’s cellar door and ventured around the bike tracks.
St Anne’s assistant Kristen Dyer said the bikes had been extremely popular.
‘‘They’ve all had fun. Even the older people come in and say the bikes bring back memories. They’re reliving their memories,’’ Ms Dyer said.
With many hotels and motels still booked out, Campaspe Shire mayor Ian Maddison was pleased with this year’s tourism numbers.

Mr McCrimmon said he had enjoyed his stay in Echuca.
‘‘It was great and we had a lovely time.
