Welcome to Shepparton
Laid-back ‘Shepp’ is the capital of the Goulburn Valley, where the Goulburn and Broken Rivers meet. Drive through here on a rainy Monday afternoon and you're unlikely to be tempted to stop. But Victoria Park Lake is pleasant for a picnic and a stroll, and the small Shepparton Art Museum has one of the best collection of ceramics in Australia as well as some excellent exhibitions.
As the heart of a rich farming and fruit-growing region (the giant SPC cannery is here), it’s popular with travellers looking for fruit-picking work.
