Who are the people of the Swan Hill region? Some are descended from the hard working pioneers who began to settle the area more than 150 years ago. Others are more recent arrivals from many corners of the globe. A vibrant community spirit is the result.
The agricultural and horticultural sectors are at the backbone of the community, with the region deriving its income from these industries and the businesses that service them.
Swan Hill itself has matured over recent years into a thriving, modern city, but at the heart of it, you’ll still find a friendly country town with people and values to match. While Swan Hill is the central hub, each town in the region has its own character and identity. Robinvale is the next largest service centre in the municipality, however a number of smaller towns such as Lake Boga, Manangatang, Nyah, Nyah West, Piangil, Ultima and Woorinen South offer a variety of lifestyles.
The many strengths of the region’s communities are built on shared values, strong culture, the willingness to help each other out, and the ability to have a good time together.
