Swan Hill

Discover the best of Swan Hill

Swan Hill is a river port town which enjoys a Mediterranean climate with balmy summers and crisp, clear winters and plenty of top-notch produce. Stay at a Best Western motel in Swan Hill and enjoy the many delights of this relaxed town.

Swan Hill, named by an early visitor after he encountered a noisy flock of swans here, borders the mighty Murray River. The waterway is flanked by shady parks and picnic spots, and plied by gracious old paddle steamers. Here, and on nearby lakes, you can fish, cruise, swim, water-ski or sail a yacht.

Near Swan Hill’s paddle steamer restaurant, PS Glen Adelaide, Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement recreates a 19th-century town complete with period stores, workshops, vintage vehicles and traditional artisan activities.

Swan Hill’s year-round festival calendar is packed with sporting, cultural, agricultural and food and wine events, including sailing regattas, the Murray Marathon, horseracing carnivals, music festivals and an Italian fiesta.

Local produce is funnelled through Swan Hill en route to bigger markets, and the town’s better eateries capitalise on easy access to the best and the freshest. The region’s climate and soils combine to produce exceptional, crisp white wines, earthy, full-bodied reds and character-full varietal wines that can be tasted and purchased at local wineries.

Browse through antique, craft and art galleries, enjoy beautiful golf courses, bushwalk or tour the surrounding area; a patchwork of grain fields, vineyards, vast orchards and citrus groves.
