Started the day with a walk along the Marraboor River and soon discovered that it was rather fresh to be wandering around outside. We had planned to go on a paddle steamer, and one departs from the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement at 2:30pm daily so we decided we might as well make a day of it, get the two for one ticket, and spend the day checking out the settlement so we could be indoors.
At the moment the river is flowing at about one kilometre per hour and heading back downstream we travelled at a blinding nine kilometres per hour.
Back on dry land (well sort of, the rain still persisted) we headed out of the Pioneer Settlement to check out the Regional Art Gallery. They currently have an exhibition on about print and drawing. We wandered around admiring all the works and voted in the people’s choice for our favourite pieces.
As the day was still cold and wet we finished up by checking out a few shops along the main street.
Heading south again tomorrow.
