If you want to learn more about the history of the Swan Hill region, you’ll be spoilt for choice. In particular, we recommend: the Lake Boga Flying Boat Museum (which was used during World War II), the Pioneer Settlement (which gives you a taste of Australia’s colonial history and is home to PS Gem as well as the Heartbeat of the Murray Laser Show), PS Pyap (a paddlesteamer on the Murray River), and Nyah West (whose main street has been heritage listed).
If you are more interested in the region’s artistic and cultural ties, we have the attractions for you! Discover more about the local Aboriginal culture by visiting the Story Wall, the river walk or the Aboriginal Ring Tree. Those interested in more artistic pursuits should head to the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery or Bogartz Glass Studio. And the Lake Boga Observatory will allow you to take a look around our solar system using its four main telescopes.
