Great Places To Visit - Swan Hill, Mildura.

Pioneer Settlement Swan Hill

Murray River from the Caravan Park at Swan Hill

Swan Hill on the Murray River is a nice little pioneer town. We stayed 2 nights here on the Murray River in the Caravan Park in town. Nice walk to the shops and back or a short drive if you're not up to walking. Good amenities in the park as it's all been re-done about 5 years ago.  Enjoyed out stay here. For tourists there is the Pioneer Settlement to wander through and see a bi-gone era and the history of the town. Very interesting.

Moved onto Mildura for our next stop. Staying in town, at the Top Tourist Park - All Seasons.  Small park right near a shopping centre, Coles, Woolworths, Target etc. Easy walk to Coles, almost next door.  Being on the Calder Hwy it is a little noisy, but didn't bother us.  This park is small which we like.  The amenities are old, but kept clean and tidy and everything works as it should.  We are staying about 5 days. Lots to see in the local area, with it being the food hub. Also wineries in the area.  Mungo National Park is about 110Klm away. 

We are enjoying a few quiet days on The Murray,  walking in the parks, watching the people, the pelicans and the paddle steamers! For those who would like a ride on the paddle steamers they do a 2hr run along the river.
