Shepparton - Cities, Towns and Localities
Often called Victoria's "fruit bowl" Shepparton (or "Shep" to the locals) is the hub of the Goulburn Valley and the centre of the vast Goulburn Valley irrigation district. With its close proximity to Melbourne (being just 2 hours south), Shepparton makes an ideal place to stay and visit the surround region.

Although Shepparton has many dairies surrounding it, it is best known for the large orchards of pome and stone fruits. Major development was to occur after World War I, with the dairies supported by milk processing and the fruit industry established canneries and packers for their products. Further expansion occurred in the 1960’s as the requirement for fruit continued to expand.

Other towns and villages in the region include Ardmona, Bunbartha, Congupna, Grahamvale, Invergordon, Kialla, Lemnos, Merrigum, Mooroopna, Murchison, Orravale, Shepparton East, Toolamba and Undera.

• The Shepparton Heritage Centre continues from the earlier Shepparton Historical Society in being custodian of Shepparton’s proud past. Formed in 1962, the Historical Society originally met at the Mechanics Institute, and included the Shepparton Council Historic Collection.

In 1972 Council purchased, then developed, the present Historic Precinct, which marks the hub of old Shepparton. Here was the punt crossing of C1850 and related Emu Bush Inn. The riverboat wharf of 1880 still stands, reminding us of the original course of the Goulburn River.

The museum include the following:
  • The Raymond West Gallery - restored through a Federal Government grant, the interior of Shepparton’s former Public Hall of 1874 now features items from the era of Federation. Also reflected are some of this buildings former uses as a Foresters Lodge, church, and steam printers. Look for the 1860’s wedding dress!
  • The Vince Vibert Gallery - having a domestic theme, this room houses our collection of cottage clocks. The restored bed frame was once on a rubbish tip. The base is named to James Fairley who had an early Shepparton department store, while the bedspread is handmade, C1860.
  • The Paul Gribben Gallery - named after our Historical Society President of 17 years, this gallery features a military display, stationary engines, farming, and local industry. Notable is a captured anti-tank gun, one of two known Second War Australian Navy presentation pieces. There is a hand-built model of the donor, too: the Corvette H.M.A.S. Shepparton.
  • The Myrtle Ford Wing - pass Martin Brothers Saddlery and see our fully r3estored tower clock from the Shepparton Post Office of 1883. Here murals reflect on the beginning of Shepparton, while a special theme is early transport. The 1929 fire engine is believed to be one of only six of this model, which were converted.
