The Swan Hill community welcomes you to their beautiful part of the Murray

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

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, nature and good food and wine, with many outdoor and water activities to keep you active – no matter the season.

With more than 500km of Murray River frontage, lakefront living at Lake Boga and everything from our rural city to farmland, the biggest problem is deciding where to live.

Services on offer in the community are equal to that of larger regional centres with a number of schools and educational facilities, easy access to health and aged care services, housing options to suit varying needs and most importantly a vibrant and diverse employment industry with rewarding career opportunities.

Swan Hill, the heart of the Murray is a hidden pocket of Victoria, so don’t just visit, consider a relocation.
