Set in the heart of the Goulburn-Murray Waters region, Shepparton offers a diverse range of attractions. After beginning as a river crossing in the 1850s, it has grown into a city of 25,500 people who enjoy more sunlight hours than any other Victorians - an average of seven hours sunshine a day.

The area is known as the "Foodbowl of Australia" because of its fruit and dairy processing industries, as well as its burgeoning wine-producing industry. The wealth of fresh, local produce has encouraged a lively local restaurant scene.

The city straddles the junction of the Goulburn and Broken rivers and the river flats attract horse-riders, cyclist, joggers and walkers. The rivers meander through the landscape, attracting vistors for boating, fishing or simply lazing about.

The Goulburn River Pedestrian Bridge links the popular Victoria Park Lake precinct with KidsTown, one of the largest outdoor playgrounds in Australia, via the Yahna Gurtji pathway network.

Reedy Swamp Wildlife Reserve is a large wetland area with extensive reed beds harbouring a variety of waterfowl. More than 100 species have been identified in the wetland, including a large ibis colony, and the locals will assure you that the swamp teems with Murray cod. A 7.5km walking track wanders through stands of majestic yellow box, grey box and river red gums.

For the culturally minded, Shepparton Art Gallery includes a collection of Australian ceramics as well as works on paper. And while you're out and about in Shepparton, keep an eye open for large, multi-coloured cows. No, not a figment of your imagination, but part of MooovingArt, a tribute to the importance of the local dairy industry.
