Seymour

Seymour is perfectly positioned on the banks of the Goulburn River, with views towards the majestic Tallarook Ranges. It is located at the junction of the Hume Freeway and Goulburn Valley Highway and is home to town folk, local farmers and the Puckapunyal army training grounds.

Seymour is a natural beauty with an abundance of unique attractions. The town's many historic buildings are a must-see due to their links with Australian history.

History and Heritage

Seymour was settled as a new crossing place of the Goulburn River in order to provide greater access to New South Wales. Today, Seymour is extremely proud of its rich history and heritage.

Seymour's military heritage is an attraction for the town. Home to Australian Light Horse Memorial Park, Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk and WWI Memorial Park, the town is the first destination of the Military Heritage Trail. You can also take a short drive to the Army Tank Museum, located in nearby Puckapunyal.

Seymour's history also has close ties with the old Victorian railway network. We recommend having a look at the impressive collection of heritage trains at Seymour's Railway Heritage Centre.

Explore the Area

Situated on the Goulburn River, Seymour offers an abundance of activities such as bushwalking, fishing, boating and camping. Seymour also has an impressive calendar of events, hosting annual crowd-pleasers such as the Seymour Show, Seymour Alternative Farming Expo, Tastes of the Goulburn and the Seymour Cup.

The Seymour Visitor Information Centre is a great first point of call for all visitors. Our friendly team are always ready to assist and share their knowledge of the local area.
