This thriving city filled with culture and character, encourages you to connect with a richer, more colourful experience of regional Victoria. Major events, diverse cultural offerings and community celebrations bring people to Shepparton all year round.
The iconic local landmark of Shepparton Art Museum (SAM), a striking, architecturally designed building, houses one of Australia's most important collections of historical and contemporary ceramics, plus historical paintings and contemporary art in all media, with a focus on contemporary and indigenous Australian Art. Co located, Kaiela Arts celebrates the diversity of local Aboriginal artists, with exhibits showcasing both traditional and modern applications.
Public art in abundance provides a creative connection to our history. First nations elders are immortalised through the Aboriginal Street Art Project, and Moooving Art cows provide a cheeky nod to our important agricultural industry.
The Museum of Vehicle Evolution (MOVE), a world class transport museum, reflects the region's past, through exhibits of cars, trucks, bicycles, and buses, plus the iconic Furphy Museum, and the Loel Thomson Costume Collection. Collections tell stories from the ordinary, to the absurd, including classic rides and chrome bumpers from days gone by.
The beautiful natural landscapes of Victoria Park Lake and the Goulburn River are perfect backdrops for a picnic, a paddle, or throwing in a line, and an extensive network of shared pathways encourages exploration in all directions.
