Swan Hill Murrary River Sunset SWH6727

Welcome to Swan Hill, The Heart of the Murray

Welcome to the Swan Hill Region, a bustling agricultural hub, with Swan Hill city at its centre.

Just three and a half hours north-west from Melbourne and five and a half hours from Adelaide, our region is renowned for its Murray River location, its fresh local produce, sprawling landscapes, Australian native wildlife and Aboriginal heritage.

The region runs alongside the majestic Murray River for nearly 200 kilometres, with our 6,100 square kilometres featuring changing landscapes, bends of the River, and enchanting townships like Lake Boga, Nyah/Nyah West, Woorinen, and the regional centre of Robinvale.

The original custodians of the lands are the Latji Latji, Tati Tati, Wamba Wemba, Barapa Barapa and the Wadi Wadi Nations. The strong cultural connection to the land for Aboriginal people continue to this day.

The perfect time to visit

With more sunny days per year than the Gold Coast, and a temperature that averages 23 degrees, the Swan Hill Region is a natural choice for lovers of sunshine, good food and wine, and many outdoor and water activities to keep you busy – no matter the season.
