Horsham

Discover refined regional recreation in Horsham, the capital of the Wimmera district and home to manicured botanic gardens, art and cultural treasures, and sweeping sunsets over the renowned Wimmera plains.

Horsham lays claim to a relaxed, country atmosphere and a moderate climate. Originally grazing lands, the Wimmera became better known for wheat production and Horsham was quickly developed as a centre of economic activity for the region.

The banks of the Wimmera River and the striking surrounds were immortalised by artists Arthur Boyd and Sidney Nolan and still provide inspiration to a dynamic arts community. Artistic and cultural treasures abound at the renowned Horsham Regional Art Gallery, housed in a 1930s art deco building, and the Wool Factory produces some of the finest wool in Australia. The William Guilfoyle-designed botanic gardens on the banks of the Wimmera River will account for many hours.

With a host of things to do in and around the town, Horsham is also an excellent base for exploring the surrounding natural attractions, including Mt Arapiles-Tooan State Park, Little Desert National Park (where you can spot the intriguing Mallee Fowl) and the northern Grampians. Be inspired by the rock climbers as they test their skills on the daunting Mt Arapiles and capture the sunsets that can be seen on the vast flat plains of the Wimmera and the northern Grampians.

Horsham is the region's showcase greens golf course and is recognised as one of the best public courses in Victoria. Come for the Horsham Golf Club Annual Tournament in September or the Racing Cup Carnival in October.

Horsham is 301 kilometres north-west of Melbourne and is a 3.5 hour drive. Travel by car via the Henty, Glenelg or Western highways. Coach services are available daily from Melbourne.
