After visiting the restaurants in Shepparton, you can also do the following activities: 


Shepparton Art Museum 

The museum has an exhibition program that draws from local, curated, and visiting exhibitions, but its genuine focus is Australian ceramics for which it has a perpetual showcase. Additionally on perpetual showcase is the museum’s collection of Australian paintings and works on paper. 

Furphy Museum 

Situated at Emerald Bank Leisure Land, 7717 Goulburn Valley Highway, the Furphy Museum investigates 150 years of the popular Furphy blacksmith and wheelwright business with displays identifying with the celebrated Furphy Water Carts, the Circular Quay Furphy Fencing, the Furphy patented harvested, early farm tools and a smithy’s shop. John Furphy, a blacksmith and wheelwright, arrived in Shepparton in 1873 and by 1878 had set up a foundry. By 1880 he was fabricating water carts which turned out to be massively famous around the nation. Such was their prevalence that when war broke out in 1914, they were ordered in enormous numbers by the Australian Army and were utilized in camps where the nearby water supply was questionable. It is said that the word ‘furphy’, which means rumor or tall tale, appeared because troopers used to gather around the water supply and it was there that gossipy tidbits were shared and spread. 

John Furphy was joined in Shepparton by his more popular sibling Joseph. Joseph had been a farmer in the Riverina but had been bankrupted by a dry season. He worked with his sibling for a very long time and it was during this time that he composed the incomparable Australian novel, Such is Life. The tale was distributed under the alias ‘Tom Collins’. The Museum is open on weekdays from 10.00 am – 4.30 pm.
