Swan Hill is a city that lies on the Murray Valley Hwy on the south bank of the Murray River.

In 1836, Mitchell camped on a rise by the Murray that he named after the swans that disturbed his night's sleep. Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement is an authentically recreated nineteenth century Mallee town that also features displays of Aboriginal implements. The Wemba Wemba and Wati Wati tribes lived in the Swan Hill area.

The Burke and Wills expedition reached Swan Hill on Thursday, 6 September 1860 on their journey across Australia from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria. They made Camp XV, (their fifteenth camp out of Melbourne), in the police paddock on the banks of the Murray River in an area that is now Riverside Park
