Swifts Creek is on the Great Alpine Road about 30kms from Omeo. Sited in the Tambo Valley and alongside the Tambo River the town enjoys great weather and scenery. Surrounded by majestic hills, Swifts Creek sits at the junction of the Swifts Creek and Tambo River.
With around 300 people it is second in size in the Omeo region. The timber mill, originally Ezards,visible in the lower right of the image opposite has been redeveloped and is now fully fledged as a pallet timber maker, which started its second shift in September 2002.
