About Swan Hill:
Swan Hill is located on the Murray River in northwest Victoria with a 4% Indigenous population. 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 and the popular Pioneer Settlement recreates the atmosphere of a pioneer river port town and offering riverboat cruises.
The town is well provided with retail outlets and specialist stores selling local produce. Vast citrus farms and vineyards attract seasonal visitors and workers.
