Swan Hill History
Swan Hill is an historic town. In 1853 Francis Cadell in his paddle steamer Lady Augusta navigated the Murray from its mouth in South Australia reaching Swan Hill, his farthest point upstream. The boat was welcomed by the whole of the town’s population – 12 people. The town grew up around the punt crossing, as it was the only crossing of the Murray within 100 km. Robert O’Hara Burke and William Wills crossed the Murray here in 1860. The punt operated until 1896 until it was superseded by a bridge. There are many more things to experience in Swan Hill.
