There are few places that will have you feeling like you’ve stepped through a portal and found yourself transported over 150 years into the past, and Swan Hill’s Pioneer Settlement is likely to do just that.
Wander the streets of the Mallee Township, and experience Australian history come to life. Sweet tooths must find their way to the General Store and enjoy old fashioned lollies from humbugs to raspberry drops. Find yourself enthralled by the blacksmith's work, feeling the heat as they operate the forge, using fire and physical strength to create just about anything from iron.
The best way to explore the town is with a complimentary ride by vintage car or horse and carriage rides, head to the souvenir shop for a memento to take home, or snap a family photo dressed in costume.
After you’ve spent the day exploring, head back to the Pioneer Settlement at night and settle in for the the world-class Heartbeat of the Murray laser spectacular.
Set on the banks of the Little Murray River, the show uses water, light, laser, sound and special effects to transport you back 30 million years telling the story of The Murray.
