In the midst of a gourmet revolution Simpson remains true to its dairy farming roots. The small rural township was recently honored as the Legendairy capital of South West Victoria; a nod to good farming practices, quality dairy produce and strength of community.
Why not pop in say g'day and stay a while? Consider spectating at a local football or cricket game as part of your next visit? With three leagues active in the region and home grounds at Simpson, Timboon, Cobden, Camperdown and Nirranda you might just catch a game on a Saturday, have the best meat pie you'll ever taste and rub shoulders with local farmers at play.
