We've put together the best things to do in Shepparton ranked by customer review ratings.
Victoria Park Lake
This relaxing well maintained park and lake is a relaxed space with diverse flora and birdlife. Walking paths are wide and smooth with plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the surre
Great relaxing place to spend a few hours. Beautiful lawn areas with a huge lake in a quiet a relaxing area.
It's great location for a BBQ or picnic, which I have done both. I reconnected with lost family and across the road is KFC and Hungry Jacks and if you have a car a great Fish & Chip shop down the road.
Set right next door to town we were surprised by the great facilities. BBQs available (no pay) beautiful walkways toilets and green grass. Took out time to cook a few snags and engage with the Blue Wrens and water birds. Relaxing
Date of experience: February 2019
We just completed a beautiful morning walk around the lake. After a hot day yesterday, it was so refreshing walking around the lake this morning. It is a relatively short 4 km walk, with some bushland, boardwalks, and many water birds to spot. Quite lovely and well maintained.
Shepparton Motor Museum
We decided to turn around after driving past this place. Which I’m glad we did, there was a great collection and wide variety of cars in the showroom.
But also to my surprise the Harley collection is one of the best I’ve seen, with bikes from the 1920’s on show the almost new ones.
Not to mention the collection of push bikes dating back to the 1800’s to go along with all the other stuff.
For a relatively small outlay - I paid the seniors rate $10 - you get to see a lot of interesting cars, motor bikes and push bikes. These vary from vintage, over 100 years old, up to near present day. In addition an attached museum, at no extra charge, tells the story of the Furphy foundry, which has now grown into a major agricultural equipment firm. Lots of detail to read, although the amount of description for the exhibits varied from thorough to just a title. You can easily spend a couple of hours there. Note that the items being exhibited change, as the museum has many exhibits on loan from the owners for varying periods.
This is really...A great little Museum ,some fantastic old racing cars , collection of old Harleys.and classic cars ...the cars get changed around from time to time ...also a gift shop with everything related to the classics...worth a look if your passing through or staying for the weekend if that's your interest,you just might see that car that you wondered what happened to it..
Well worth the price of admission- and more!! Was let by a friendly lady who told us the history and about the generosity of the donor companies who made this possible.
Once inside, I was very impressed with the vehicle lineup - and the fact that it is changed every 3 months.
Nice gift shop and no pressure to buy.
Surprisingly for a museum, we were made to feel welcome and that we weren’t interrupting their day.
Go, enjoy and relive some memories of vehicles you had almost forgotten.
Great collection of cars that is constantly refreshed. Some ripper restorations on display as well. Motor bikes, bicycles and the Furphy museum add another dimension. Friendly staff, enjoyed our visit immensely.
Moooving Art Shepparton
I have always wanted to check out these cows and I was not disapointed. So clever and look amazing. Definately worth a detour to check these out.
For those who don't know, Moooving Art is a collection of near life-size model cows of different themes. They are scattered around the shire and get moooved occasionally.
The tourist information centre has a list of them and where they are. If you go on a cow chase to try to find them all, chances are that some will have been moooved. That's half the fun; along with trying to identify the often-cryptic themes on the cows. Sometimes cows need to be repaired and other times they are reborn as different cows. It's a great fun thing. I wish more councils would take this sort of initiative. Currently there must be close to a hundred either on display or in the workshops. Well done Shepparton shire.
Kids enjoyed looking at the cows and different art work on them. Worth a look and in a nice park so good space for the kids to run around
This colourful herd greeted our first-ever arrival to Shepparton, faux-grazing away on the pasture as they do.
Necessitated a circle about to come and pat the wee beasties at close quarters.
The wherefores and whyfores have escaped me somewhat, but a town that has mutant psychodelic plastic moomoos roaming freely can't be all bad.
Seem the painted bollards at Geelong and painted koalas at Port Macquarie, so had to walk about and see the cows, unfortunately could see all apparently there is just over 100, but happy with what we saw even thou people looked at you weird while taking photos of them

A full day picnic with my whole family
In side and out side pool and amenities for people from 1 to 100 years old. Bring your own food and invest a full day with your family.
We visited this place for the first time and we were impressed.
My kids loved all the different activities that were on offer; waterslide, Tarzan rope, olympic pool....
Great for adults too, swimming, sauna, spa...
Cafe bar has a good variety and prices are really good.
We can't wait to go back!
Social swimming, lap swimming, aqua aerobics, fitness classes, yoga, pump, RPM cycling classes or gym - Aquamoves has it all!
Good place to relax with kids. Has both indoor and outdoor pool. Indoor pools are heated in winter. Friendly and attentive staff
This place is so unexpected! There really is something for everyone. Whether it's water activities or exercise equipment, this place has the best of it all. Amazing pools for the serious swimmers or water play pools for fun times for others. There's even Hot spas to ease your aches & pains or just to unwind & relax!
If exercise is your thing, then this is beyond your wildest dreams, every type of fitness activity at your fingertips and all with people to help you get fit! It's amazing!
Shepparton Art Museum
Such an interesting little gallery and great exhibitions even though it's pretty small! Really loved it, would definitely recommend visiting if you're in Shepparton. Also, the lady who worked there at front was just delightful and super welcoming.
SAM is a small regional
Gallery. We had a wonderful experience. There are some well known Australian works eg. Streeton, Von Guerard and McCubbin and some innovative pieces which cover a diverse range of art. The amazing Sydney Myer ceramic competition works were on display while we were there. A new building is to be constructed by the lake to house the Gallery. Don't miss this regional gem when in Shepparton
I'm not much of an art lover, but I have enjoyed viewing both well known works as well as work by the locals. Meter parking is available just outside, and free parking out the back.
Great collection of Australian ceramics ... well curated and beautifully displayed. Plus works by a selected contemporary artist showcased at the entry.
This is only a small art museum but well worth a visit. I was fascinated by a couple of the artworks and spent some time examining them. There are paintings by well known Australian artists, as well as aboriginal artists, and more recent works.
There wasn't a display upstairs when we visited but I am sure it would be well worth visiting when there is.
Shepparton Heritage Centre
We spent an absorbing couple of hours at the museum while visiting Shepparton. Very friendly and informative welcome and then you can go through the museum at your own pace. Lots of interesting memorabilia of past life in Shepparton. NIce there are chairs scattered throughout the museum so you can relax a bit while absorbing each display
A lot of the stuff is old and “junky” , but it brought back a lot of memories for me. Friendly attendants and we were made to feel very welcome. Like Aladdin’s cave, this seems to go on and on. Well worth the entry fee.
Very quaint little museum. Clean and well presented.
Entrance fee was fine and the historical books for sale were great. I loved how people can add there own little comments on sticky notes all around the museum ( way better than a visitors book that no one reads ) my boy is home schooled so he got some great ideas to do little projects for himself as projects ( the matchstick post office and the old screw Star of David sparked his interest)
This is an excellent Rural Heritage Heritage Centre specialising in local history of Shepparton some fascinating items of how people lived in the past and things they used in daily life spend sometime reading many of the displays to get the feel of life in the past and the people that made the area we see today
Amazing centre looks very small but when you go inside it opens up into several big light and airy rooms. Such a lot of interesting things from a 16th Century chair donated by Shepparton UK (thanking student in early 1900's for sending dried fruits to them) to war medals, china, 19th century clothing the old post office clock dial face etc. In the room on the right as you go in is a room full of photographs which have been rescued by Geoff (Jeff?) or donated, full of precious historical value. Its now open every day.
Cost $5 good wheelchair access
Australian Botanic Gardens Shepparton
The botanic gardens have really evolved since I was here 4 years ago. Lovely walks, all signposted and new sculpture gardens - really inspiring. Now I confess that I am a diehard gardener and just love being outdoors but I think there is something here for everyone. Open space for kids to run around in, easy ground level walks and the more challenging trot up the hill for breathtaking views 360 degrees. Interesting native plantings with good signage. A tip - make sure you are wearing sturdy walking shoes or runners as most of the paths are gravel/ dirt.
G SC have made an interesting garden. Certainly worth seeing. A must for everyone. All ages can enjoy. The climb up the hill can be achieved ,slowly or for those fit enough a great work out.
This place is beautifully serene and new. The attention and care to the plants and layout is very obvious.
This is a new garden area, and I only wish I could see the change and the growth over the years.
People were strolling, and gardening and even hard out exercising when I was there.
Walk, run, strollers, pushchairs, bikes...all is catered for
Lovely place for Botanical interested people with a perfect spot to watch Aussie sundowns. Behind River Side Placa
This former landfill site has been transformed into a series of beautiful gardens. This place continues to be transformed with new gardens are areas being developed each time I visit. Great plans are in place as you may notice on the signage at the entrance.
There's many trails to explore with a highlight hiking up to the lookout with great 360* views across the Goulburn Valley and Strathbogie Ranges. My young children love rock hopping across the concrete formations, seeing the planes fly by and running up and down the zig zag path! There's a picnic tables and seating so BYO lunch and soak up the scenery.
All Abilities Playground

Kidstown well worth a visit.
We regularly take our grandchildren to Kidstown between Shepparton and Mooroopna.. In Victoria Australia.
It is always a wonderful experience. The cost to enter is a gold coin donation, plus a small fee for the train rides. These only operate on weekends as they are volunteer run. But worth the cost to see the big smiles on the children's faces.
Other attractions are the maze, and the slides. It is a very well set out venue,and often has special,events . Easter and other holidays are well worth a visit.
The length of your visit will depend on how much time you have at your disposal
There are picnic areas so you can take a picnic, or there is a cafe/ kiosk. It s easily accessed using strollers and wheelchairs. There is a bit of walking so make sure you have comfortable shoes appropriate to outdoor activity. And be happy to let the kids run free and get dirty..
Took the grandkids for picnic and play, and we are always impressed. Has toilet facilities, barbecue facilities, and slides, swings and activities for all age groups and includes wheelchair access to many areas. Playground is securely fenced with child safe gates. Plenty of shaded play areas.
My grands have had a couple of birthday parties here. It is ideally located, has fun playground equipment, tables and plenty of space and free parking.
This is a great interactive playground and does cater for all abilities. Picnic tables and lawn areas for those who want to spend some time here. Always a fun time here with the kids.
A great playground for all children. The surrounds are secure so you don't need to be watching your children all of the time. They have provided wonderfull facilities. My grandchildren love visiting here when in Shepparton. The council in their wisdom hid it away from the public and the main road, but worth searching for. From the main road it is behind the lake next door the Aquamoves.
Greater Shepparton Visitor Centre
We recieved amazing service and the lady that served us went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and provided us with lots of relevant brochures and also a map of Shepparton. I would highly recommend that this centre is your first point of contact when planning a trip in Shepparton and its surroundings.
We came as a busload and picked up a lady from the visitor centre who directed the bus on a tour around town and she was excellent telling us about the history and current happenings of the town. Anyone visiting as a group like that are well advised to communicate with the Visitor Centre and see what they can offer as a guide
This info centre and gift shop is just off the Goulburn Valley Highway. It has a range of books on the history of the area and souvenirs and gifts. There is meter parking just outside.
The staff here were really helpful with accomodation and attractions to entertain our grandson. They helped us pick a cabin in a park and we had the best one on the lake it was so good thanks so mich.
The 2 ladies who ran this shop on the day I arrived were so brilliant and knowledgeable, we stayed longer simply because they made fab suggestions on what to do. Shepparton is so easy to get around, and it is a great base for travelling out of town like Echuca and Swan Hill.
We checked out the Art museum, Mooving art around the township, Motor museum and Vic park. Also as suggested the Phillips cellar...sensational.
Lower Goulburn National Park
Address: Kotupna VIC 3638, Australia
Phone: +61 13 19 63
great fishing along the Goulburn river, close to the city and accommodation. There are some good camping points also, if you need to go bush. Very nice part of the Goulburn river.
Great fishing trip at Shepparton. There is an abundance of in the Goulburn River especially around Toolamba and Shepparton.
The Goulburn river is one of the best kept secrets with its red gum tree forests , beautiful river and abundant fish,
The free camps in the Lower Goulburn National Park are numerous but you must leave your site cleaner than when you got there and abide by the campfire regulations. If this is done everyone will have a much more enjoyable visit.
The fishing can be done from the bank or boat with the Yellow Belly and Murray Cod abundant. Worms, shrimp, chicken, cheese, Baldi grubs and lures are all worth a try .
Make sure you know the local rules for lengths and fish quantities before you start . A Victorian fishing licence is also required .
Enjoy as we have
We camped in Lower Goulburn National Park for a night. Camping is allowed but dogs, cats and firearms are not permitted. Also, fallen timber may be gathered for camp fires but must not be taken out of the park. Gorgeous area along the Goulburn River - the second longest river in Victoria, which is declared a heritage river.
Shepparton Marketplace Shopping Centre
Address: 110 Benalla Rd, Shepparton VIC 3630, Australia
Excellent for shopping . Good free parking. Many shops something for everyone. Fabulous food court. Big w , woolworths , chemist ,Dr clinic all there . Well worth a look .one of my favourite places to shop.
Lots of free parking, great array of shops, banking and a fantastic little food court. Such shops as Safeway, a great butcher, bakers delight. There is fashion giftware music gaming hairdresser and so much more. Well worth a visit.
We've been here many times because here is very convenience and so fancy of shops. Food court was so great nice and clean. Worth to come.
We had several visits to this attractive shopping centre and enjoyed to the fullest every time we went there whether it is for shopping or sight seeing etc etc etc.
Been to one market place and you been to then all with not much change between them but if you are looking for BIGW this is where to go
Address: 137-139 High St, Shepparton VIC 3630, Australia
The gallery is operated by the local Aboriginal community and is a gallery and studio. You can purchase art, large and small pieces. Great artwork reflecting the local heritage.
Some of the things on show are just special, extremely wonderful. We actually spent quite a lot of time in here just admiring all the wonderful works on display...
It is a lovely place to visit. You get to experience really good quality art and even have the change to speak to some of the artists.
There is a wide variety of artifacts for sale like jewelry, paintings, sculptures, vases, weaving and even emu eggs.
Loved this amazing art gallery superb! A must see if your in shepparton it was wonderful to see such quality in this art work
I highly recommend a visit here for locals or if your a visitor to Shepparton you won't be disappointed in the quality of the local Aboriginal arts and crafts.
Address: Off Maude Street Mall, Shepparton, Greater Shepparton, Victoria 3630, Australia
Shepparton is flat so if you go a steps that take you above the buildings all you really see is the roof's of the surrounding buildings. Not that exciting
Some exercise after we sat in the car driving from Bendigo, great view, glad we did it, easy to find]
The tower is just of the main street in Shepparton. It is a good walk up the steps. Once at the top, you can enjoy a wider view of the city. Meter parking is available close by.
This is about eight flights of stair's but if you have the time and energy it is worth the climb for a great view of the town
Went on January the 7th was 38 degrees. I got locked in and had to spend the night on the burning metal, i received third degree burns to my neck, Achilles heel and my right eyeball, i had to have surgery in the tower this resulted in my dinner date leaving me in my hour of need. lots of fun would go again.
Bangerang Cultural Centre
Address: 1 Evergreen Way, Shepparton VIC 3630, Australia
We are so glad that this facility has reopened. It has many important artifacts from aboriginal history. My kids loved the displays and voiceover recording explaining the scenes. We hope that this facility can go to the next level of guides and presentations...
Our family were disappointed the centre wasn't opened on weekend day. No signage to indicate open times. This place could be a tourist attraction waiting to happen!
I found the place incredible. The range of Indigenous artifacts on display plus the amusing and knowledgeable tour guide, Rowland, was mind blowing. To be able to actually touch many of the artifacts like coolemans and spears. A must for everyone in Shepparton
A good way to access the Bangerang culture and beliefs. Local indigious history, with a personal touch through the attendants.
Really enjoyed this place. I really enjoyed learning about the history of this country. We need more of these facilities and less plastic cows.
SPC KidsTown Adventure Playground
Address: 7287 Midland Hwy, Mooroopna VIC 3629, Australia
We stopped here with a 5 year old and a 15 month old and it was tough to get either to leave. Something for all ages and we went on a day when was super quiet so this was advantageous as didn’t have to wait to use anything. Such an awesome idea having a good coin donation, we’ll worth it after spending a cpl hrs there
For the price of a gold-coin donation, this is s fantastic playground that has something for kids of all ages, including big kids...
Two, little mazes, great monkey bar section, a long flying fox, lots of diggers in the sand pit, some great slides and playground equipment for younger kids. A beach volleyball court and a round swing. Great facts and figures about all things bovine.
The cafe is pretty standard - $5.00 for a plain meat pie. The miniature railway is fun.
You can spend a deceptively long time here, it's that fun.
Popular for birthday parties and plenty of shaded areas.
Visited today. KidsTown is great value for money (gold coin entry) and train ride $3.50 per person. The park itself is beautiful with lots for the kids to do and plenty of places for mums and dads to sit and rest. All safe and so clean.
I would recommend taking your own food as the cafe is very limited. We didn’t eat there. And maybe don’t go on a 36 degree day like we did as it was sooooo hot. Enjoyable but hot. We would have spent much longer there but the heat (no fault of kids town obviously). I did see some very smart people cooking a bbq for their family (free use of the bbq). Would be an amazing place for a birthday party or family/ friends gathering with kids. Lots to do, see, play with. This was our third visit and we will come back... in the cooler months.
On my travels with my family
went to kidstown today
Wow what a great place for the kids so much to do and see and only a gold coin entry
Had a lovely family size pizza for only $10 made fresh in front of me and the cafe staff were great , and so friendly
A group beside me we're having hot chips and could hear them saying is this great
The staff r bringing our coffee and food out so we don't have to wait and we can catch our kids
Good work Kidstown
Will be back
Carlyon from Waga Waga
Pretty good place for birthday parties, family with kids gathering and kids fun. Mini train is main attraction for kids
Fun City Entertainment Complex
We spent around five hours there - the staff were very friendly - invited us to join in on the different activities. Loved the go karts and the laser tag and the simulators. Not sure about the arcade games - a lot of places have gone without the tickets and the points just go onto your card. Maybe they need to think of that. Not a sensational range of prizes and a bit on the expensive side - would need to spend a bit of money to reach a decent point value
Had the best day at Fun City Shepparton. The go carts and laser tag was so much fun. Great prices, great food and great friendly staff made made it a great day. Highly recommend if you’re looking for school holidays entertainment or just anytime
Awesome place to go with kids and the family. Spent 3hrs there and could have stayed longer. Definitely will be back. Unfortunately some of the activities are alot dearer then they are worth. The spooky house was very poorly set up and shouldn't even be at a cost. Majority of others are great though
Fantastic place to visit. The kids enjoyed all the activities especially the go kart. Very reasonable price. The place is cool enough to relieve the hot temperature outside. Would definitely go back & recommend with others.
Hello trip advisers Fun city in shepparton is an excellent entertainment place for the kids and adults the go karts are fun and fast has mini golf and VR and lots more it is a bit money hungry but if you have money you can have fun
The Royal Mail Hotel
Address: 98 Parker St, Dunkeld VIC 3294, Australia
Great food and service. Got the sausage curry with mash potatoes, peas and carrots. Best dish so far in Australia! Garlic prawn were great as well. Great prices to boot! Not a fancy place, but it was clean. Lots of locals it seemed.
We went here just to see what it was like after reading the reviews. Not disappointed. Has a very good menu board and the food is well presented and there is plenty of it. Would recommend.
About 14 friends meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month for an evening meal and catch up time. We are all locals and have been frequenting the Royal Mail for over ten years now. The staff are very good and it is a pleasant place to meet. Two of us require a gluten free diet and the chef, Mat, is more than happy to over see our meals.
Great atmosphere , friendly service and great food. This is the most popular hotel in Mooroopna and bookings for meals are recommended .
I've been there several times. the place is brilliant, always clean, good service. it's am excellent place to join with friends, in family or your couple. Restaurant has delicious plates too
