Of course, it’s always possible that there will be short delays along the way.

Swan Hill: What to do and see before you go back to Melbourne Airport?

Swan Hill and an iconic feature of Regional Victoria, and it’s located on the Murray River about 340km north west of the city. The Murray River road bridge is heritage listed, which denotes its historical significance in the region. Swan Hill took off in the 1850s when a riverside wharf was constructed, at the height of transport along the Murray River. The best part is that many remnants of that time stand in excellent condition today. In a nod to the River’s abiding influence on the area, there are still river cruises you can book. If land-based activities are more your speed, the area has winery tours, regional art galleries, and even a pioneer village to keep you occupied. Whichever attraction you choose, you can rest assured that Hughes has your transport needs covered.
