Horsham is a lively city, centrally located in the Wimmera region, with excellent opportunities for shopping, dining, entertainment and accommodation.

Horsham is also a fantastic base to explore the region.

One can find a choice of accommodation ranging from caravan parks, self-contained accommodation to motels and hotel.

The region offers a number of self-drive touring options.

An easy day trip into the Grampians is worth considering.

The northern part of the Grampians is especially beautiful for rugged outcrops and magnificent wildflowers.

This area has a number of walks from those suitable for families to the more adventurous.

Watch out for magnificent sunrises and sunsets and a visit to the olive groves is a must.

In the area, there are cafes and other eateries and adventure activities such as rock climbing, bush walking, horse riding and quad bike riding.

To the west is another self-drive touring option which can include a visit to Natimuk. The town of Natimuk is becoming known for its arts and rock climber adventures.

For those who prefer an easier way to get to the top, an all-purpose sealed narrow road takes you to the top of the "Mount" for fantastic views.Natimuk

On from Mt Arapiles is the Little Desert National Park which is full of wildflowers in spring. The area south of Dimboola is especially pretty with the Wimmera River flowing.

Here you will find camping grounds and olive groves.

Further North and East is the emerging SILO ART TRAIL with 5 of the planned 6 large silos painted with local identies.
