Swan Hill Rural City Council is a large municipality situated in North West Victoria and covers more than 6,100 square kilometers. The Murray River provides frontage to approximately 500 kilometers of the municipality which gives the unique characteristic of lush irrigation districts reaching into the golden grain belt of the Mallee and is home to just under 21,000 people.
