Horsham  Victoria

    •   Show me: a map of Horsham

Set on the junction of the Western, Wimmera and Henty highways 300km north-west of Melbourne, the Wimmera ‘capital’ of Horsham is ideally placed for excursions into the Little Desert National Park to the west and the majestic Grampians to the south-east.

Although the area was founded on wool, the development of the Federation strain of high-yield, drought-resistant wheat helped underpin the region’s prosperity. Today the district continues to produce top quality grains for export, as well as some of the world’s finest wool.

Not that it's all work and no culture in this city in the west. Horsham Art Gallery boasts one of the finest provincial collections in the land including works by the likes of Rupert Bunny, Sidney Nolan, John Olsen and Charles Blackman.

Horsham is set on the Wimmera River whose local banks provide fine fishing and picnicking spots. To the south-east of the town, a chain of four lakes - Dock, Green, Pine and Taylors - also provide excellent opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, sail-boarding and canoeing.
