The upgraded project will better tie Swan Hill’s major tourist attractions together by connecting the Pioneer Settlement entrance to the PS Gem, the Art Gallery and Spoons Restaurant and on to the proposed southern section of the River Walk.
It will boost the local economy by attracting further private sector investment along the Riverfront, increasing local recreation activity and driving visitation to the town and region.

 

When complete, the 5km River Walk will stretch from the wetlands in the north, to the natural river setting of the Little Murray in the south.

 

“The riverfront is a major tourist drawcard for Swan Hill and the Andrews Labor Government is helping improve this already popular destination so more people will come and enjoy the many features on offer,” Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford said in a press statement. Pulford yesterday (Jan 10) joined Swan Hill Rural City Councillors to walk the length of the Swan Hill Riverfront project, taking in the completed Stage 1 works of the Swan Hill River Walk Enhancement and the Heartbeat of the Murray site.

 

“Swan Hill’s iconic riverfront is set to sparkle. This is good news for local jobs, good news for local residents and even better news for tourists,” Pulford added.
