Nestled around the Wimmera River, and attached to Lake Hindmarsh, Jeparit is a treasure trove of history, nature, and peace. Being halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide, off the main highway, the town makes a perfect choice for a stop-over, meeting place, or getaway – long or short term.
Jeparit is a quaint little rural town on the borders of the Southern Mallee and the Wimmera regions with a predominant farming sector featuring cropping, grazing, and running stock of sheep and some cattle.
The town is the birthplace of Australia’s legendary Prime Minister, Sir Robert Menzies. He was Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister, 1939-1941 and 1949-1966, keeping the top job for over 18 years. Some regard him as Australia’s greatest leader. In honour of Sir Robert Menzies, his achievements and political success, Jeparit has erected a spire, a town square, and a plaque.
“The main thing is that you should be doing your best. It might not be as good as someone else’s best, but you must still do your best.” – Sir Robert Menzies
