Our pick of the local restaurants and cafe's.
This is a great all rounder with a beautiful view of the river. Go for brunch or lunch and sit outside to soak up the sun and views while enjoying great coffee and food, or go in the afternoon for coffee and cake. At dinner time they do more of a fine dining menu. No matter which meal you decide to have here this place is a do not miss while visiting Swan Hill.

The best Thai restaurant in town. Great takeaway that delivers- order online http://javaspice.com.au or call (03) 50330511 to order. This is also an amazing restaurant to eat in at but it pays to book as it's often full. Our tip if it's not too cold request to sit outside in one of the authentic balinese huts!!

A great cafe that is always busy, good coffee, great lunch specials, salads and brunch menu on weekends. There is also a sister cafe a 10 minutes drive from Swan Hill in Lake Boga which is worth the trip. Make a morning or afternoon of it on a nice day and see the lake and check out the Catalina museum.

Set on three hectares of land on the banks of the Little Murray River, the Pioneer Settlement lets you experience Australian history first hand. You will find real-life Mallee cottages, a hotel, schools and shops, plus our enormous collection of working tractors and machinery – sourced mostly from the local area. You can feel the heat in the blacksmith shop, listen to the sounds of the old Pianola or take a ride through our Mallee township on a horse and cart. As you wander the site, you can also chat to our staff and volunteers, all looking the part in costumes of the period. The Pioneer Settlement opened in 1966 after a joint community and government effort to recognise the unique history of our Murray Mallee region. By the 1970s, the Pioneer Settlement was one of the most popular tourism destinations in Victoria, if not Australia, and the concept has been emulated around the country. The Settlement is now introducing more ground-breaking tourism concepts to complement the historical Mallee townships. The Heartbeat of the Murray Experience will include a laser light show that, in a world-first, will combine modern laser technology with the natural river environment. It will tell the story of the Murray region from prehistoric times until today. Check out the website as there are also extra activities during school holidays. Including an easter egg hunt on easter sunday

One hour cruises depart from the Pioneer Settlement wharf each day, taking you upriver past the Riverside Caravan Park, Murray Downs Marina and the historic Murray Downs Homestead. Cruises are daily at 2.30pm. On weekends, public holidays and Victorian school holidays, an extra cruise also departs at 10.30am. Boarding of the Pyap is via a ramp and at times depending on river levels can become quite steep which some visitors may find it difficult to manage. The Pyap serves a range of snacks and beverages on board. Contact us to secure your seat. Click here for ticket pricing. Find out about private functions. Please note cruises are unavailable each February as the Pyap undergoes maintenance. ABOUT THE PS PYAP The paddlesteamer Pyap was built at Mannum in South Australia in 1896. Despite her great size – she is almost 30 metres long and 4.8 metres wide – she has a very shallow draft which means she can float in less than a metre of water. In her early days she was used a floating general store. She travelled the lower Murray River, stopping at small towns and farm stations along the way. Inside, she had a serving counter, a store section and a separate drapery at the rear of her lower deck. The crew slept on the upper deck. The PS Pyap travelled 500 kilometres each week selling goods to settlers at over 60 settlements and landing places along the river.

Set on the banks of the Little Murray River, the world-class Heartbeat of the Murray is a 360-degree multi-media spectacular unlike anything ever seen in Australia. Using water, light, laser, sound and special effects to tell the story of the Murray, you’ll be transported back 30 million years, before travelling forward through time to the Murray River as we know it today. This state-of-the-art show is the first of its kind in the world to use a natural river environment and setting as the background. The Heartbeat of the Murray laser light show has been made possible thanks to funding from the Federal and State governments, and Swan Hill Rural City Council. The Heartbeat of the Murray laser light show screens every night promptly at 7.30pm. Doors open 30 minutes before the show and we encourage you to arrive early and enjoy a short pre-show film on the history of the Pioneer Settlement. Please note late arrivals may not be admitted. Bookings essential.
