The City of Echuca was a local government area of Victoria, Australia, about 200 kilometres (124 mi) north of Melbourne, the state capital, based around the regional centre of Echuca, on the Murray River. The city covered an area of 26.06 square kilometres (10.1 sq mi), and existed from 1865 until 1994.
The Borough of Echuca was incorporated on 3 January 1865, and became a city on 1 March 1965, just after its centenary celebrations.
On 18 November 1994, the City of Echuca was abolished, and, along with the Town of Kyabram, the Shires of Deakin, Rochester and Waranga and some neighbouring districts, was merged into the newly created Shire of Campaspe.
The City of Echuca was not divided into wards, and its nine councillors represented all electors in the city.
