Introducing Goulburn Valley
One of Victoria’s major inland rivers, the beautiful Goulburn is an important irrigation source that makes intensive agriculture possible. Once a complex of rivers, creeks and billabongs, it has been tamed by dams, levees and channels, although you can still find many pockets of riverine ecology.
The Goulburn Valley is Victoria’s ‘food bowl’, an important centre for fruit, dairy, food processing and some of Australia’s oldest and best wineries. To get here, leave the Hume Fwy after Seymour and head north on its little-sister road, the Goulburn Valley Hwy.
