Welcome to Jeparit including Glenlee
Jeparit is well-known as the birth-place of Sir Robert Menzies. The town was gazetted in 1889 as ‘Jeparit’, from an Aboriginal word said to mean ‘home of small birds’.
Here the Wimmera River meets Lake Hindmarsh with 13kms of graveled walking track meandering along the banks of the Wimmera River and looping around town. Explore Settlement history and step back in time at the Wimmera Mallee Pioneer Museum.
25km south west of Jeparit is the Glenlee Flora and Fauna Reserve.
Jeparit offers fantastic camping, boating, bird watching and fishing at Lake Hindmarsh and the Wimmera River.
