Small dairy town
At Stanhope, huge stainless steel storage tanks
associated with the Bonlac milk products company
tower beside the Midland Highway and contented
cows can be seen in adjacent paddocks, providing
a clear insight into what constitutes the area's
bread and butter, so to speak.
Stanhope is situated 183 km north of
Melbourne and 29 km west of Shepparton. It is a
small service town for the surrounding area.
Girgarre, 5 km north, once had the state's
largest specialty cheese factory but it has
closed down. 'Girgarre' is said to be an
indigenous word meaning 'sour'.
