The City of Swan Hill was a local government area in northwestern Victoria, Australia, along the Murray River. The city covered an area of 13.66 square kilometres (5.27 sq mi), and existed from 1939 until 1995.
Swan Hill was originally part of the Swan Hill Road District, which initially covered most of northwestern Victoria, and was incorporated in 1862. The Shire of Castle Donnington severed from the district on 30 May 1893, and on 31 May 1904, the Castle Donnington municipality was renamed and gazetted as the Shire of Swan Hill.
On 20 January 1995, the City of Swan Hill was abolished, and, along with the Shire of Swan Hill, and the Tresco district of the Shire of Kerang, was merged into the newly created Rural City of Swan Hill.
Swan Hill was not divided into wards, and its nine councillors represented all electors in the city.
