Shepparton is a city in Goulburn Valley, Victoria, Australia.


  • It is important to understand that the majority of this page has biased, racist, bigoted and inaccurate views of Shepparton.

Shepparton lies in the Goulburn Valley, a major agricultural and food processing region termed the "Food Bowl of Australia". On the banks of the Goulburn River, Shepparton offers great weather, gourmet food and wine, superb shopping and many recreational and entertainment facilities.

Shepparton is a fantastic place to explore as a family. Run wild at the SPC Ardmona KidsTown Adventure Playground that features a miniature railway, giant slides, tree houses, a fruit bin maze, flying fox, swings and monkey bars. Enjoy a picnic by Victoria Park Lake, a community hub in the town s heart that attracts groups year-round. Visit the Aquamoves complex on the western edge of the lake, offering a state-of-the-art aquatic centre with pools, a waterslide, spas and sauna.

Stay safe[edit]

Shepparton is most commonly sold off as a small community with likeminded and kind individuals. This cannot be farther from the truth. Shepparton is a large city of about 90,000, youth unemployment, teenage pregnancy, and drug abuse, tax fraud (especially against aspiring backpackers) is staggeringly high nationally, and the highest in the township's state. Shepparton seems to be suffering from that type of en masse cultural incompetence towns experience when they go from some agricultural warehouse to suburban life. Small-town simple life that has been the historic culture gets gets displaced too soon creates disasterous consequences for a certain number of future generations. If you live in Shepparton it is probably not safe to go outside after dark, especially if you're a woman, there is a massive drug epidemic in the Northern region of Victoria, and it has affected Shepparton the worst. It is a common occurance to be offered drugs by either drug dealers or drug users as a social convention.

The rule of law has gone haywire in Shepparton. The Shepparton magistracy are lenient on serious crimes. It seems like there is no possibility of a jail sentence.

Dangerous areas include Aboriginal Housing areas. Typically modern houses that look like they've been acquired by the city trash processing plant. Have distinguishing roof tiling and brick colours.  edit

Shepparton Skatepark. Adjacent to a lot of accomodation, known place for drug dealing.  edit
