The Victorian countryside is varied and interesting. It has magnificent rivers, great valleys and alpine regions and rolling farmlands and wine regions.
The countryside was the scene of historic goldrushes and famous bush rangers like Ned Kelly.
Swan Hill is definately worth a visit and genuine Australian hospitality is just waiting for you. Just three and a half hours north-west from Melbourne and five and a half hours from Adelaide, Swan Hill is renowned for its Murray River location, its fresh local produce, sprawling landscapes, Australian native wildlife and Aboriginal heritage.
Unlike most of Australia the distances in Victoria aren’t so vast, and there are plenty of interesting stops along whatever road you choose to take.
