It includes the townships of Swan Hill, Robinvale, Lake Boga, Nyah, Nyah West, Piangil, Woorinen, Ultima, Manangatang, Boundary Bend and Tresco. Featuring a modern and thriving regional centre, the Swan Hill municipality also boasts the characteristics of rural living, including a strong community and relaxed lifestyle. With more than 40 commercially grown products – including almonds, olives, stonefruit, grapes, vegetables, cereals, legumes, lucerne, sheep, beef and dairy – it is easy to see why our municipality is an important part of Victoria’s food bowl. Located on the Murray River, tourism also plays an important role in our region’s economy. Our climate and natural beauty attracts about 388,000 domestic visitors each year, injecting $55 million into the local economy. Our municipality is also proud to have more than 40 nationalities among its community and a population that is welcoming and resilient. Continued investment and a strong focus on long-term growth and sustainability remain high priorities for Council.
