Our holiday in Victoria

September 2007

Our next overnight stay was at a caravan park in Swan Hill. This delightful town is located on the banks of the River Murray in north-west Victoria. This town is predominantly a service centre for the surrounding farming districts. Tourism is becoming increasingly important too. The cabin we stayed was very nice though rather on the expensive side compared to some we had hired.

The caravan park is very pleasant and much of it fronts the bank of the river. It is also only a short distance from the Historic Village. We didn’t have time to visit this village on this trip. I’ll share photos of our visit some years ago when I get around to it. I know I have plenty of photographic slides of this tourist village. The replica village is a living museum paying tribute to the early settlers of the area. It also features the importance of the river boat trade before the advent of the railway.
