About Swan Hill:

Swan Hill (population 10,000) is located on the Murray River in north-west Victoria.

In the early 1850s, Swan Hill became one of the region’s major inland river trading ports. The river trade declined with the expansion of the railway system and agriculture spearheaded the town’s prosperity.

The Murray River is lined with parks, barbecue facilities and walking tracks. The popular Pioneer Settlement recreates the atmosphere of a pioneer river port town, offering riverboat cruises.

Vast citrus farms and vineyards attract seasonal visitors and workers.

The town is well provided with retail outlets and specialist stores selling local produce.
