Shepparton is a great place for a family holiday
Shepparton is about 180 kilometres north-east of Melbourne on the Goulburn River. The town is well known for farming and fruit-picking, but deserves more attention as a family holiday destination. Parks and activities for the kids, pleasant cafes and shops along Maude Street, and a vibrant arts scene, make Shepparton well worth a visit.
