SHEPPARTON, Regional VIC
Shepparton is the epicentre of a rich agricultural region known as Australia’s ‘Food Bowl’, the City being the commercial, manufacturing and transport capital of the Goulburn Valley.
Local industry revolves around dairying, fruit growing, cattle, sheep and manufacturing. All this primary produce is exported to international markets and therein lies the clue to Shepparton’s future - transport.
Strategically located on the intersection of the Midland and Goulburn Valley Highways, both road and rail access easily links to Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane and export markets.
Over a billion dollars is currently being spent on road and rail upgrades while a major freight logistics centre is under construction, delivering improvements for both passenger and freight transport.
Job opportunities are soon to be boosted further with construction on several solar farm projects due to begin in 2019.
Residential properties are cheap and vacancies are low, providing good opportunities for investors.
