Beautiful gardens to stroll through, including a water feature and other structures. The gardens also have a large collection of Shepparton’s “Mooving Art” pieces, such as the Van Gogh inspired cow, and my personal favourite the “How Now Brown Cow”.

Although strange it sounds strange, the chocolate apple factory is delightful, the staff are very kind with many samples to test including jams, juices and the chocolate apples themselves. I tried the white chocolate rocky road apple, which was sweet and crisp.

Shepparton Art Museum (SAM)
  • Shepparton Art Museum – 70 Welsford St, Shepparton, Greater Shepparton, Victoria 3630, Australia. Free Entry. Open everyday 10am – 4pm.

SAM is a free entry art gallery with beautiful pieces that are quite thought provoking. The piece above “Woman and Child” is even more realistic in real life, with other ceramic and painted works throughout. Unfortunately  I went towards the end of the day so only the bottom floor was available. The woman working was very helpful and up for a chat.
