THE CITY OF HORSHAM - The Capital Of The Wimmera
The beautiful Wimmera River flows through the southern end of town with parklands and ancient red gum trees that line much of the river. You will find a number of walking tracks and boardwalks through the surrounding wetlands.
Take an easy stroll or pedal your way along the river and find points of interest on the way. The Wimmera River and its annual Fishing Competition are notable features of the city.
A new Anzac Centenary Bridge was built connecting both sides of the Wimmera River, Horsham in September 2017.

Located on a bend in the Wimmera River, Horsham is approximately 300km northwest of Melbourne with an estimated population of 17,000.
