Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos has announced the return of the popular event to Swan Hill, which is set to attract thousands of attendees, boost business, and showcase Swan Hill and the Murray region as a visitor destination for people across Victoria and interstate to enjoy.

“We are proud to support events like River Lights because they encourage people to visit regional destinations to enjoy the wide range of experiences on offer, which supports local businesses and jobs,” said Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos.

This year, River Lights will take place at one of Swan Hill’s most treasured tourism attractions Pioneer Settlement, with the program featuring light sculptures, laser effects, interactive projections and holograms in a showcase of history, art, community icons and First Nations culture.

River Lights will illuminate the sky over ten nights from Friday 28 June to Sunday 7 July and offer a range of session times so families with young children can attend early in the evening.

Support from the Government’s Regional Events Fund through Visit Victoria will help deliver new elements for River Lights 2024 and attract more visitors to the Swan Hill and the region over the school holidays.

The Government’s support for regional events across the state is a key pillar of Victoria’s $37.8 billion visitor economy – creating thousands of local jobs and boosting businesses.

River Lights takes place at the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement from Friday 28 June to Sunday 7 July 2024. For more information, visit: www.visitthemurray.com.au for details.
