Shepparton Accommodation

Shepparton is a city located on the floodplain of the Goulburn River in the north east of Victoria - approximately 200 kilometres  north-east of Melbourne. Shepparton is the fifth largest city in Victoria.

Shepparton    began as a tiny sheep station and river crossing before undergoing a major transformation as a railway town. Today it is a agricultural and manufacturing centre and the centre of the Goulburn Valley irrigation system, one of the largest centres of Irrigation in Australia.

Shepparton  city is also notable for its Moooving Art project, which involves local artists painting fibreglass cows, which are then displayed in tourist locations throughout the city and surrounding townships. The project is an artistic representation of the strong dairy industry prevalent in the Shepparton area.

Shepparton city is home to a large swimming centre called Aquamoves, two performing arts centres, one in Mooroopna named WestSide, a fitting tribute to a musical theatre standard and its geographical location and Eastbank in Shepparton which houses the centres' box office. Collectively the centres are called Riverlinks, which also incorporates the Shepparton Art Gallery.
