Location
Established in 1876, Kyabram is in the centre of a rich irrigation district in the Goulburn River Valley in Victoria, located 200 km north of Melbourne. It is situated between the towns of Echuca and Shepparton and is close to the Murray River, Goulburn River, Campaspe River and Waranga Basin. The name of the town is thought to derive from an Aboriginal word Kiambram, meaning “Thick Forest”.
