Visit Horsham, the capital of the Wimmera district for the regional high life amid botanic gardens, art and cultural treasures, a renowned public golf course and sweeping sunsets.
Horsham has a relaxed, country style atmosphere and pleasing climate and is an excellent base to explore 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 world famous Mt Arapiles and capture the sunsets that can be seen on the vast flat plains of the Wimmera and the northern Grampians.
Originally opened up for grazing, the Wimmera lands became better known for wheat production so Horsham quickly developed as a centre of economic activity for the surrounding region. Discover artistic and cultural treasures at the renowned Horsham Regional Art Gallery, tour the Wool Factory which produces some of the finest wool in Australia and relax in the picturesque botanic gardens on the banks of the Wimmera River.
Tee off in style. Horsham is the region’s showcase greens 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.
