What Did We Review:  Heartbeat of the Murray Laser Light Show

Reviewer’s rating:  

Where to buy: Pioneer Settlement Swan Hill

Set on the banks of the Little Murray River, the world-class ‘Heartbeat of the Murray’ is a 360-degree multi-media spectacular unlike anything ever seen in Australia.

Using water, light, laser, sound and special effects to tell the story of the Murray, you’ll be transported back 30 million years, before travelling forward through time to the Murray River as we know it today.

This state-of-the-art show is the first of its kind in the world to use a natural river environment and setting as the background.

Features and Benefits:

  • Exciting
  • Stunning special effects
  • A great display of history and tradition
  • Clever use of the water and lights
  • Great family night out

Reviewers Experience

Imagine taking 40 kids to a show and having all of them mesmerised. It’s no small ask but is exactly the experience we enjoyed on a recent evening outing to the Heartbeat of the Murray light and laser show at Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement.

Set on the banks of the Murray and featuring a clever use of water, lights, sound and special effects, this state of the art show delved into the history of the Murray River.

Not only was the history fascinating and extended far beyond traditional pioneering tales of the Murray, the exciting delivery allowed the audience to be immersed in the experience. A great family night out or evening adventure for adults and children alike, the Heartbeat of the Murray is a highly enjoyable event that ticks all the right education and entertainment boxes.

We will be back again!
