Mooroopna - Cities, Towns and Localities
Known as the 'Fruit Salad City' after the annual charitable fund raiser 'Fruit Salad Day', the rural town of Mooroopna is located just across the causeway from Shepparton.

Mooroopna is home to the SPC Ardmona Factory Sales, where visitors flock to purchase in bulk canned fruits, tomato products, baked beans, spaghetti and other products at vastly reduced rates.

Located between Mooroopna and Shepparton is Gemmills Swamp, a wildlife reserve that encompasses some 170 hectares of Red Gum flood plain forest and wetlands. This conservation reserve is a great place to bird watch, where visitors can often see pelicans, swans, ibis, egrets and ducks.
