SWAN HILL

the small city "swan hill" is located in the north-west of victoria, at the murray river. it has 11000 residents. while the area was settled by aborigines for a long time, the modern village was established in 1846 by european settlers, at a punt river crossing. since 1890 it is linked to melbourne by a railway line.

the "pioneer settlement" of swan hill presents historic buildings, work facilities and shops, including 1850s cottages and horse-drawn carriages. river cruises are possible with an old paddle steamer, the pyap.

my visit of this place, in 2019, was something like a history travel!
