Where is Shepparton?

Shepparton is the hub of the Goulburn Valley and the centre of the vast Goulburn Valley irrigation district, often called Victoria's 'fruit bowl'. The city has a good industrial base and its close proximity to Melbourne, just two hours south, makes it an ideal tourist area.

Shepparton has many dairies surrounding the town but is world famous for the large plantings of pome and stonefruit. Major development occurred after WWI as the dairies were supported by milk processing and the fruit industry established canneries and packers for their products. Another expansion occurred through closer settlement during the 1960's as the requirement for fruit for Australia's growing population increased.

Shepparton is surrounded by rich fertile alluvial plains and together with extensive irrigation systems, diverse agriculture has been successfully grown, requiring thousands of workers each year to harvest the crops. Workers are strongly advised to contact the harvest labour service provider to check work availability before moving to the area. Includes Ardmona, Bunbartha, Congupna, Grahamvale, Invergordon, Kialla, Kyabram, Merrigum, Mooroopna, Murchison, Lemnos, Orrvale, Shepparton East, Tatura, Toolamba and Undera. See also Cobram and Echuca.
