Swan Hill

Swan Hill - The Murray - Victoria

Visiting Swan Hill will provide visitors every opportunity to walk in the footsteps of pioneers at The Pioneer Settlement, Australia's first open-air museum. Explorer Major Thomas Mitchell named this location Swan Hill due to the black swans that kept him awake all night and they still inhabit the area today. There are many possibilities for fun and adventure in Swan Hill as it lays on the banks of the mighty Murray River, jump on a boat, catch the fish of the day and sample fine food and wine from the region. Tee off on the fairways of Murray Downs Golf and Country Club, one of the best in Victoria.

Swan Hill enjoys close proximity to some of the pristine and rugged sections of the Murray River. Get out on the water in the 105 year old paddle steamer Pyap, an original working paddleboat from the exciting riverboat days, is the perfect opportunity to witness this part of the region. The Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement has re-created the Murray and Mallee regions from the late 1800's to the early 1900's with barber shops, chemists and horse drawn carts, an encounter to transport you back in time.

Wine enthusiasts will discover easy drinking red and white table wines from premium wineries and then walk it off with a meander along the riverbank, taking in interesting reminders and relics of the golden days.
