Tallygaroopna

A few minutes up the Goulburn Valley Road from the fruit bowl capital of Shepparton, the small town with the musical name of Tallygaroopna sits just to the east of Bunbartha and Loch Garry. Set in a state forest, the loch is accessed by a clearly-signed unsealed road and is a pleasant spot for a picnic. The lake is a sanctuary for several species of waterfowl which feed off small fish and nest in the reeds and rushes which hug the shoreline. Fed by the Goulburn River, the lake is a popular swimming and boating retreat and for fishermen on the trail of yellowbelly, redfin and catfish. The original giant Tallygaroopna pastoral station was opened up in 18400's by Edward Khull, who sold two years later to Sherbourne Sheppard, who, in turn, gave his name to the large regional city of Shepparton. Although the station was broken up into small holdings in the 1870s, imposing Tallygaroopna Homestead still commands sweeping views of the Goulburn River. Home to the southern hemisphere's largest cannery, SPC, Shepparton is graced by some outstanding public buildings and an art gallery whose collection includes works by Frederick McCubbin, Arthur Streeton, Arthur Boyd, Margaret Preston and Rupert Bunny.

Greater Shepparton MooovingArt


Moooving Art is a unique and ever-changing public art revolution. Scattered across Greater Shepparton's parks, gardens, riverbanks and public spaces is an array of colourful, ever-changing fibreglass cows that make up the Moooving Art herd.

This exhibition of life-sized 3D fibreglass cows brings a whole new meaning to street art. Greater Shepparton produces a large percentage of Australia's dairy exports, making the bovine a natural choice for this unusual attraction. There are over 90 cows in the MooovingArt herd and they are displayed outside businesses, in gardens, on poles and in buildings including the Shepparton Visitor Centre.

Local artists transform these sculptures to make each piece unique, or funny, or challenging. Try to spot new additions to the herd. Collect sightings of each sculpture as they are regularly moved to different locations around the city.
