Stay in any of the hotels in Shepparton and you’ll see just how much of a paradise this city is for nature lovers. From Victoria Park Lake in the heart of town to the Lower Goulburn National Park just 40km (25mi) away, you’ll have your fill of fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing. Only looking for a suntan while staying at the motels in Shepparton? These places to stay will give you the adventure, recreation and relaxation you desire.

1. Addison Motor Inn, to work up a sweat

You’d think most motels in Shepparton wouldn’t have fitness centres, but Addison Motor Inn surprises guests with a special treat: access to Advance Fitness Northside. Hit the gym with a 15-minute jog from your executive suite, taking a quick dip in the pool before returning. Breakfast will be ready for you in the main dining area, but you’re free to request that room service deliver it straight to the dining room table in your suite.

2. The Carrington Hotel, for prime relaxation

With views of beautiful Lake Victoria, it’s a wonder why all hotels in Shepparton don’t have a wine lounge like the Carrington Hotel. Uncork more than just vino when you unlock the door to a spa suite. A corner spa bath, a coffee maker, minibar and Netflix on the TV – it’s the simple pleasures in life that make travelling here so delightful. Not quite simple but still savoury, the 300g (11oz) Scotch fillet at Restaurant 505 will only enhance your evening.

3. The Wyndhamere Motel is the main course

Few motels in Shepparton can boast the city’s best steak, but one bite of beef at Angus & Co. will convince you they’re not steering you wrong. With so much juicy steak downstairs, there’s practically no need for the kitchenette in the one-bedroom apartment. The corner spa bath in the king spa room will suffice for solo travellers. If you’ve got your tots in tow, the family room gives each of them a separate bed to jump on.

4. Quest Shepparton, for outdoor fun

Pack the bikes, skateboards and scooters for your stay at Quest Shepparton. The kiddos won’t care that they’ve got their own bed and TV in the two-bedroom apartment – they’ll just want to drag you outside to run around Victoria Park. A lakeside playground and skatepark will keep them busy for hours. When they’re all tuckered out, the full kitchen in your suite is ripe for cooking up grilled cheese and tomato soup.

5. The Country Home Motor Inn won’t leave you running on empty


Country Home Motor Inn is a place to stay when the only waves you want to make are in the outdoor pool. Simple rooms with flat-screen TVs and a full breakfast of sausages, eggs and baked beans are all you’ll need for a comfortable stay. All it takes to get to downtown Shepparton is a left-hand turn and a two-minute drive.

6. Telegraph Hotel Numurkah, when you need a bed and a beer

The Telegraph may be a hotel that happens to brew their own beer – the Murray River Pale Ale, to be exact – but we like to think of it as our favourite bar and grill that just happens to have a bed for us to crash in. When you’re not dining on schnitzel or downing local brews, kick back in this boutique pub-style hotel. Sadly, you cannot send an actual telegraph to your mates back home – but if you want to send a message in a bottle, the on-site bottle shop has that particular parcel.

7. Paradise Lakes Motel, for soaking in serenity

Serenity is a short drive from the hotels in Shepparton at Paradise Lakes Motel. Much more than just rooms with spas and a quiet eight-acre (3ha) space off the highway, the motel overlooks a private lake and manicured gardens – granting you the privacy and peace you’ve longed for. You won’t have to move a muscle aside from venturing to the pool or heated spa – but if you must MOVE, the Museum of Vehicle Evolution is a nearby attraction.

8. Pines Country Club Motor Inn, with a pool worth pulling over for


The saltwater pool and spa are always open at the Pines Country Club Motor Inn – as if you needed one more reason to book a night. This is one of the few motels in Shepparton that offers on-site car rental if you’d rather not rely on a cab to take you into town. You won’t have to hoof it far if you’re catching a game at the Shepparton Sports Centre, though – John McEwen Reserve is right across the road.

9. Kyabram Country Motel, en route to the reserve

On the outskirts of the city, Kyabram Country Motel is an ideal choice for travellers headed into the Kanyapella Wildlife and State Game Reserve. You can be up and at ‘em early – with a coffee or tea brewed up before you can even wipe the sleep from your eyes. A knock at the door means breakfast is served – and before you know it, you’ll be perked up and ready for a day at the reserve.
